By Florida Virtual School on January 19th, 2021
This article was originally written and published in the FLVS student newspaper, News in a Click.
Foreign language courses are required subjects that students must take two years of during their four years of high school. Depending on which courses are offered by the school, students may be able to take two years of Spanish, French, Mandarin, or any other available choice.

Celebrating My Hispanic Heritage
By Florida Virtual School on October 2nd, 2015
In our Spanish for Spanish Speakers course, an assignment asks students to compare their lives in the United States with that of a fictional character in the lesson.
This character writes an entry in her diary describing her struggles to fit in with two different cultures, dealing with attitudes towards her language and towards her, and even learning to speak “Spanglish.”
I especially like part of her entry where she talks about another Spanish-speaking lady she meets at her kid’s school who owns a store in town where she can meet for a cafecito* and some very-needed Spanish conversation.
Teaching this lesson, I suddenly realized that I struggle with the very same things! Continue reading
