Steele (8, Spanish), Lincoln (7, French) and Rocky (5, French) all attend the International School of Arizona. Neither of their parents speaks another language but all of the boys speak a second language and some are working on a third!
What is it like knowing another language when your parents don’t?
Lincoln: It’s fun saying things to each other in French and Spanish
Steele: Yeah, but they are smart they usually figure it out!
What is the best part about knowing a second language?
Lincoln and Rocky: Getting to travel and knowing what people are saying!
Steele: Traveling to different states and speaking Spanish!
Does going to ISA make it easier to learn another language?
Lincoln: Definitely! Steele and I are really good at teaching each other Spanish and French
Steele: I can understand a lot of French now and he can understand Spanish from me!
What is your favorite part of ISA?
Rocky: Everyone is nice to others!
Lincoln and Steele: The teachers and all my friends because we all speak multiple languages!
