Hispanic Culture Projects

The academic year is going very fast and we are taking advantage of it in our Spanish classes. The Spanish 3 and 4 students are understanding they can communicate about almost anything and they are improving a lot. We are amazed on what a great job the students are doing. The Spanish 2 students are learning the basic concepts as well learning to write in Spanish. As a teacher I am very proud of them it is not an easy task we are learning. Spanish 1 students are doing a wonderful job as well on trying to discover a new language. Some of them have already found the magic key of the foreign language and learning how to put it into text.  I would say it has been a successful year thus far as the students are speaking the language beautifully and learning well.


As well as learning the language I feel it is important I teach the students about the Hispanic culture. On October 12 the students participated in our own version of the running of the bulls through the High School corridors. It was a good opportunity to learn more about our habits, the expressions we use in those situations and the feelings we have during those moments. The students loved the project and the High School as a whole was positively surprised.


In addition, right now we are working on the Day of the Dead project. This is an important day in the Mexican culture. The students are enjoying learning the the different Hispanic cultures and the importance they hold in these cultures. As before every class is doing different projects for this lesson depending on their class level. At this time, I can already see them improving on some concepts as they work through their projects.


At the end of the day I would like to express how proud I am of each of my students. I can relate to them because I do understand how difficult it is to learn a foreign language. They are being brave in embracing the obstacles in a grateful manner.
