Spanish students take National Spanish Exam
Spanish teacher Nancy Lambâ€™s students will be taking the 28th annual National Spanish Exam online Tuesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 9 in the library.
The National Spanish Exam tests students on both basic and more advanced forms of Spanish grammar, vocabulary and comprehension. The test is split into two categories: achievement and proficiency. Students that qualify will move on to compete in the state exam. In prior years, students have competed and won first place.
â€śThe exam helps students to get better and to use their listening and comprehension senses more,â€ť sophomore Angie Kuniyoshi said. â€śThis is a good way for students to expand their Spanish because if they didnâ€™t know [the material on] the exam, this motivates them to learn more. [By taking the exam,] students will want to think about how Spanish is actually pretty important, especially in the United States where Spanish is used a lot. It could help them in the future.â€ť
