English: Today was a rather laid back day at St. Peter High School. Anders and I got to grade tests for Spanish 1 & 2. It is so surprising how much the freshman class knows and how well they prepare for Spanish. Many of the students speak Spanish better than I do, and this is my 4th year speaking! Granted, my Spanish classes were not every day like at the high school here. St. Peter reminds me a lot of my hometown, especially the school. My high school back at home is extremely similar. In fact, many cities around Minnesota came and toured our school to build a school similar to ours. So in a way, St. Peter high school feels a lot like home.
Spanish: Hoy, Anders y yo fuimos a la escuela. Tenemos que calificar los exámenes. Es sorprendente que son inteligentes! Pueden hablar mejor que me! St. Peter siente mucho en casa (feels much like home). La escuela es extremadamente similar. Yo creo mas facil esta aqui cada semana.
English: Today, Anders and I again made a trip to St. Peter High School to spend some time with the high school Spanish 1 and 2 classes. I've been really enjoying working with the students. They are very talkative and are honestly better at Spanish than I am! I talked to Mr. Englehorn about what the language part of school consists for the students, and he said that Spanish is implemented in middle school as well. Some of the students have already taken a full two years of actual Spanish, which is completely surprising to me. On Wednesday, we helped the students with directions to a Día de Los Muertos project which was a dancing skeleton puppet. They were super cute!
Spanish: Hoy, Anders y yo ir la escuela por otro día de amigos de lengua. Yo quiero la clase de español, los estudiantes son muy simpáticos. Hay siempre estudiantes que no son los más simpáticos pero yo siempre intento ayudar. En miércoles, nos ayudamos los estudiantes hacer títere (en inglés, "puppet", correcto?). El títere fue Día de Los Muertos. El fue divertido colorear y mirando los estudiantes interpretar las direcciones.
