Dear Mr. and Mrs. Hendrickson

Before my parents came, I had one of my classes write them letters, telling them what to do, see, and eat in Spain. I will exceprt some of their responses for you.

If you want the beach, you go to Almeria. Thear are very hot. By for now

You should eat macaroni, spaguetti…It’s very good. Here the typical food is the rice in Zamora form. You should see the cathedral, the shops “Bershka” y “Zara.” Too you see Herreros street and park Valorio.

Just FYI, Zara and Bershka are like Ann Taylor/Forever 21. Not exactly unique. Also, Herreros street is the party street. Ha!

My name is Pablo. I am 14 years old. In Spain you go to San Sebastian, the Concha beach. Adios, bye, adios, hasta pronto.

You should see cities and monuments. You should eat meat. My favorite food is spagueti.

You should eat jam.

(Pssst. He means ham. But they say it HHHHHam with a really strong jota sound.)

FOOD PLACES MONUMENTS CITIES REGIONS. You should see the temples of God Church.

See, normally they refuse to even speak English to me so reading these I am finally able to assess exactly where they are at in terms of English level…What do you think?

  1. So cute – all of my kids love “espaghetti” too. It’s cool you work with teenagers – my oldest are 2nd grade! How long has your school been bilingual?

    1. It’s not, actually! Not all of them are. Which means the kids’ English levels are quite low.
