One of the subjects that I think should be required in school is learning a different language. I know schools like my high school offered Spanish classes as an option however it was not a requirement. I believe that it would help us as a society to be more open to the diversity of the world as well as the many cultures within the U.S. In my family, my parents spoke a type of German that my older siblings could understand and speak. Not me. I had no time for it. Honestly, I think I missed something by not embracing their language because It was a part of their heritage and family dynamics. Now whenever I hear people speaking in a language other than English, I am curious about what they are discussing. Not because I think they are talking about me (that’s pretty arrogant) but how they see the world around them. I relish the diversity of our world and celebrate our differences.
