Spanish

Allie Scribner, Staff Writer

Spanish is a very important language for people to know, it also benefits you in many different ways as you start your working career. If you are bilingual you have a better chance of getting a good job and you can get paid twice as much as people that don’t speak two languages. 

In my opinion I think Spanish should be a required class for people to take because they can have better careers and if they travel they can talk to people who only speak Spanish. 

According to Kaden Holzhausen he thinks “Yes, Spanish is important, you can get better scholarships, and there are better health benefits. I do not think Spanish should be a required class because  some people are not smart enough.” 

Lizabeth Rubio thinks “Spanish is a good class to take, you can communicate with Mexicans who only speak Spanish. You can also get  more jobs because you’ll be bilingual.”

“Yes, Spanish should be required because knowing a language makes you smarter. Cognitive benefits help you too,” are the thoughts of Profa, the Spanish teacher at Centennial Junior High School. 

In another person’s point of view Jenifer Lainez is a fluent Spanish speaker and she has something to say about the class “I feel like it is an ok class because it gives me an opportunity for high school. I don’t think Spanish should be a required class for everyone because most kids already have a wide variety of cultures and it’s mostly Spanish that is odd.” Jenifer Lainez is a fluent Spanish speaker and is just taking Spanish in 8th grade for a high school credit. 

The last person I have decided to interview is Abigail Gorege. She says “Spanish should be a required class because I feel like it is necessary for everyone to learn at least more than one language for many reasons.” 

In conclusion many people think Spanish should be a required class and many other people also don’t think it should be required. Spanish has a lot of great benefits in people’s lives, but it also has its downsides.
