“I take Spanish because I think Spanish is an interesting language. I took it at my old school and wanted to learn it enough to be fluent. Plus, most of my family is fluent so I would like to be able to speak to them.”

“I take Spanish because the language and the culture are both rich with history and traditions.  I addition, Spanish is a very useful language because it is spoken worldwide.”
