Let’s see what WGHS’s Spanish class students are up to this semester, and let's see how they feel about Spanish class.

Spanish class is an extremely eventful class here at Walnut Grove. They learn about the language itself, the culture, the food, and everything Español. So let’s see what WGHS’s Spanish class students are up to this semester, and let's see how they feel about Spanish class.
Olivia Polston is a junior at Walnut Grove and is part of Dr. Pieniaszek’s Spanish class. Olivia describes how her semester in Spanish class has been. “In the beginning it was easy, but now that it’s getting closer to the finals it’s getting more challenging.” She goes on to explain how they had a unit about food earlier. “You got to decide on a Spanish speaking country. Then you just kind of looked up food dishes for that country. I got Bolivia, so I decided to make empanadas.” Although Spanish class is fun according to Olivia, it has its drawbacks as well. Olivia says that a difficult unit they had was the time unit. She also says that for her the vocab was the easiest part.
Another student in Dr. Pieniaszek’s class is Shannon Hayes, a junior at Walnut Grove. Shannon describes this semester in Spanish class, “It’s definitely gotten more difficult as we’ve gone on. It started off with the alphabet and numbers but now we're changing nouns to fit what we’re talking about. So it’s definitely gotten more difficult as we’ve gone on.” Shannon says that Spanish class consists of a lot of partner work, “We do a lot of projects too. Like we write a lot in Spanish. We’ll have a diary where we get writing prompts, and we have to write more in Spanish as we progress. We play a lot of games as well.” She goes on to say how she feels about the class. “The projects and games that we play have been fun, but it’s just hard to learn a whole new language.” So what is the best part of Spanish class? “I’d say that either the people or the time frame I guess. I feel like Dr. P does a good job at managing the time and keeping us on track.”
I’m curious to see what the Spanish class has to offer next semester! It seems like this semester has been very eventful with their games and projects. I hope everyone has a great break and a merry Christmas.
Or I guess you would say, Que tengas una Feliz Navidad!
