"All students can and should study at least one other language and culture. Learning Spanish is a great choice because it has many of the benefits of studying Latin plus the added benefit of being spoken by millions of people around the world and here in the United States."
 
What many don't know: "I am half Spanish American from my father’s side (Ruiz, Alfonso) and half Irish American from my mother’s side (Morrison, Smith)."
