A foreign language class is like no other class it creates and instills an openness for things that are foreign to oneself.. It leaves students more susceptible and open to new cultures and experiences… And what an intimate experience to be able to learn someone else’s language- especially so young. Just like the quote says if you speak to someone in their language that goes to their heart. Not only are you saying hey I know a bit about where you come from but you are saying immediately that you care. That you took the time to know something as intimate as how to speak to them.. And if our mission here at VLA is to create global leaders and global citizens… Then… I can’t imagine a better place to start than by learning a foreign language.. Especially one as beautiful as Spanish.
