In Baltimore area schools, young students are learning a foreign language
from The Baltimore Sun
A little girl with pigtails and composure twirled in a pirouette with the rest of her classmates at Padonia International Elementary School, responding to a question from their teacher in Spanish. "Cual es tu deporte favorito?" said teacher Christine Reier, asking her what her favorite sport is. This is what learning Spanish looks like in one of Baltimore County's 10 elementary schools, where a foreign language is being taught for the first time this year. Starting in the fourth grade, students are immersed in the Spanish language several times each week. The format this day is a fast-paced activity, with not a word spoken by the teacher in English.
