Have you ever eaten tapas or spicy Mexican food? Have you ever seen any polka dot dresses and heard the intense flamenco sounds?  In our international world, languages are now integral to our economies, diets, travel plans and even our mentalities; to take a step into another culture builds long-lasting relationships grounded in respect for each other. In our Spanish  lessons at Bellingham Middle School, our aim is to build resilient linguists with a passion for communicating both in our kind, inclusive classrooms and beyond. Whether through a letter exchange with a bilingual school, the opportunity to taste traditional recipes or listen to some of the moving flamenco rhythms, our MFL curriculum is grounded in direct, tangible links to Spanish-speaking cultures, both in Europe and the Americas. The holistic approach to teaching empowers our students to discover the people, places and culture that embody the Spanish language.
