Throughout the three years in Spanish class, I have become much more acquainted with the Spanish language and culture. It is a pleasure to be in Spanish class and I am glad I chose Spanish as my language. I started Spanish when I was in sixth grade. At that time, I was quite shy and I could not get used to spontaneously conversing in Spanish. However, throughout the years I felt more and more at ease in Spanish class and I felt more confident in speaking Spanish. In my opinion, I think 8th grade was the best year as I loved the topics Ms. Gancedo covered, such as holidays and food. It was so sweet of her when she brought edible carbon and cake to class for Christmas. At first, I had thought it was real carbon and she tricked us, so I was fairly disappointed but when Gry decided to eat it, I ate it as well, and it was sugar. I was amazed because it was very realistic! The last unit we just concluded was exploring Spanish food and we learnt about pinchos and vocabulary connected to it. Our task was to create our own pinchos and my group made a pincho with fried potato, avocado and canned tuna as the main ingredients. Our other pincho was based on gyoza and we included cheese, spinach, onion, gyoza wrap and bacon as the main ingredients. It was very successful and I enjoyed it! I loved being in Ms. Gancedo’s class and learning Spanish with my fellow classmates throughout the three years and I hope to continue Spanish in high school!
