Si hablas a una persona en una lengua que entiende, las palabras irán a su cabeza. Si le hablas en su propia lengua, las palabras irán a su corazón.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.-- Mexican Proverb
Learning a world language is an essential part of the student experience at the Academy of St. Joseph. Students study Spanish for comprehension and communication in all grades.
By the end of eighth grade, students are expected to have mastered beginning conversation, writing, reading and speaking skills in Spanish. They will be prepared for further world language study in high school.
