I love this! Two groups of high school Spanish language students in northern Kentucky are using their growing language skills to help the needy in their community. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Aside from helping local families, the students are also improving their Spanish, according to Cobb.
"They're learning so much, not just about the language but also about the culture," said Cobb. "It's a huge benefit for them to be able to speak Spanish with native speakers.
"They're excited to help and the group is really getting into the project."
This is how to learn a language! I wish I had had a similar opportunity when I was in high school or college.
By the way, I ran across this article via the CASLS newsletter which I would highly recommend. I look forward to it every Monday morning.
