Our SPA 299 Service Learning in Spanish has given us the opportunity to interact with two communities of high school students: International Refugees and Spanish-speaking students at Lafayette High School. We work with students who are learning English and help with homework in various subjects. International Students have the challenge of learning new material in an unfamiliar language. We have learned about their struggles to adapt to a different culture and their determination to succeed academically. Spanish-speaking students give us the chance to expand our linguistic and extra-linguistic skills. We have come to appreciate the mutuality of service learning as we recognize that we learn while helping others learn. We have gained an understanding of language acquisition and the importance of cultural integration.
