Learning a language is truly a valuable skill for today’s students.

Studying languages teaches you to read well; to listen well; to write clear, concise prose; to speak privately in conversation, publicly in discussion, and formally in speeches; to judge your audience and regard your own words through the eyes and ears of others; and to do these things reasonably well in languages and world views other than your own¹.

Spanish is a fantastic choice because, not only is it the second most commonly spoken language in the world, but it is rapidly becoming a business necessity here in the United States.  I’m excited you and your child have seen the benefit of learning Spanish and look forward to a wonderful semester of improved proficiency and greater cultural understanding.
