The Culture of Spanish

Spanish is a language used all over the world. Many people take Spanish class for different reasons.

“Because it's a requirement, I like Carrillo, and it's fun,” said Mia Miller, junior.

People also take it to learn about the Hispanic culture. While teaching her students the language, Mrs. Carrillo finds fun ways to engage her students. Her fun and creative ideas make learning a difficult language enjoyable. She teaches through games, music videos and other fun activities.

In Mrs. Carrillo's class, students can expect to learn many common statements.

“In Spanish I, we are learning how to ask someone's name and saying yours, asking and saying how are you, introducing others, and saying where you and others are from,” said Sierra Coldwater, sophomore.

The teacher introduces the basic terms and statements in this class. It is a very fun class, and it's a fun way to meet new people.

In Spanish II, things get harder. Some things that are taught are: how conjugate verbs, learn body parts, and learn how to change tenses of verbs. With Mrs. Carrillo's help and patience, she finds ways to remember how to conjugate verbs, and how to memorize new words.

As students advance to Spanish III, the difficulty level increases. The difficulty gets harder, and the language is used more in conversations.

“Well, right now, we're reading a book. It's about a boy that gets lost in Costa Rica. It's all in Spanish, which makes it a lot harder to understand than in English,” said Isaiah Cohens, sophomore.

Spanish III is the last Spanish class students can take at Goddard. All Spanish classes are available to students at GHS that are interested.
