A Little More Tongue


"Is it as important to learn Spanish in the United States as it is to learn English here in Argentina?"
Well, no.
But why shouldn't it be? Within the US, why isn't language given its fair share of attention and promotion, along with "core" subjects like science and math?
A Pew study projects that the American Latino population will comprise 20% of the entire US population by 2050. Although Spanish is the most commonly taught foreign language in secondary schools, and maintains a majority in college language classes, it isn't given the same level of importance as other subjects.

Elementary school students learn Spanish in Roanoke


The Governor wants to cut $700 million out of the public education budget.

School administrators across Virginia face extraordinarily difficult choices, as they ponder what to cut.

This week, we look at the kinds of programs that may not make the cut in Roanoke.

Shelly Moses is putting her students through the paces in Spanish class at Grandin Court Elementary.

11-year-old Jack Vance and his classmates are getting an early start on a foreign language.

Along with the rest of these 5th graders, Jack reads well above his grade level, just as Lee Pritchard does. Lee enjoys knowing how to talk to the waiter in a Mexican restaurant. "We went to El Rodeo. We had to order what we wanted in Spanish. It was cool," says Pritchard. "After the 7th or 8th grade, they just cannot get that pronunciation.
