Schools dual language learners reach milestone
from Tri-City Herald
In kindergarten, Ryan Calveard wasn't thrilled about sitting in a class where most everything was taught in a language he didn't understand. "All they spoke was Spanish, all the time," Ryan said. "It was hard." Now the 14-year-old Pasco High School freshman is taking advanced courses in English and science but still studying Spanish. He can carry on a conversation in either language with ease and says he wants to go into law enforcement, a career where bilingualism would be a big boost.
