About This Track:
Spanish Language and Service Learning (SPANLANG 12SL) integrates the opportunity to engage in Spanish with native speakers, reinforcing the relevance of students' coursework to everyday life and community. Spanlang 12SL students work together with Spanish language heritage students at East Palo Alto Academy on a project involving art, poetry, or the environment. This course is designated as a Cardinal Course by the Haas Center and is also a Ways course that fulfills the Engaging Diversity (ED) requirement.

What Students Say:
"Most classes at Stanford don't get you outside of the classroom, but this one does. It also gives you an opportunity to interact with the community of East Palo Alto, which is so close...yet so far in our minds."
"I gained a greater understanding of the community of East Palo Alto and...Latin American culture through art and poetry."
"Not only was I able to practice my Spanish, but I had the opportunity to meet and interact with Spanish speakers and learn about their community."
"The interaction with the native Spanish speakers was definitely the most effective manner through which I improved my Spanish during this course."
