¿Quién habla español? Our BHS English language learners and AP Spanish students participated in a “Spanish speaking lunch only” on Tuesday in the cafeteria. During that time, the World Language department hosted a Spanish only lunch where students, various faculty members, and administration were invited to speak only in español while enjoying their lunch together. Our WL students had the opportunity to practice their Spanish speaking and listening skills while conversing and dining with our native Spanish speaking EL learners. Simultaneously, our native-Spanish speaking students had the opportunity to lead the conversations as well as to develop some new friendships with other BHS students. In the future, we plan to offer more opportunities like this in English (for our ELLs to practice their English speaking and listening skills) and other languages that are represented at BHS.
Overall, it was a positive and fun way to continue to build relationships with our students in a meaningful way!
