Brief History of Spanish

Spanish comes from the Latin language Latin as many other languages do. It was created on the Iberian Peninsula around the Middle Ages. Spanish consists of various languages such as Latin, Ancient Greek, Arabic, Basque, Iberian, Celtiberian, and Visigothic.

Mr. Esparza’s Spanish class

The International Spanish Academy is a program that goes from pre-K through 12 grade, teaching every student Spanish so they can become strongly fluent.

The program crosses the border from Spain all the way to the United States so we can get a taste of being bilingual education, thanks to the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture.

Isa is fortunately here in Napa, though there are only a few schools that have the program, like Napa Valley Language Academy (NVLA), Harvest Middle School, and Napa High.

Benefits

Yes, Spanish is hard but you’ll learn a lot from it. It can open doors to jobs that need bilingual employers. It not only opens doors for jobs but also opens doors in seeing the world at a new angle.

Talking about the world, there are many places where you could go According to https://www.cervantes.es – today there are Spanish speakers among 7.8% of the world population, in many places such as Puerto Rico, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

Mr. Castillo’s Spanish class

It also somehow improves your English. You see Spanish is so perfect you have to focus more on saying everything well and how to write, where to put the accent, or if it is one letter or the other as in the words roof or cow which is Spanish is Baca and Vaca.

What does it mean for the Harvest students learning Spanish?

Ana Macias – “To it means I can talk to other people and get jobs and travel to other places ”

Kimberly Amezcua – “It means a lot because you’re learning a different language and we have a bigger chance to learn more languages ”
