When I first joined Spanish class it was because I was required for graduation. My first test was awesome because I already knew all of the stuff from when I had taken Spanish in the 5th grade. After that, though my grades were all downhill, but I had to stay in the class so I could graduate. After that, I decided to take Spanish 2 because I thought it was also required for graduation, after all, all the people who were in Spanish 1 that hadn't left the school were still in it. Turns out I didn't actually need to take Spanish 2 and I can still drop out at any time and even though my grades are still terrible I am still in the class. The most important thing that Spanish class has taught me is, not so much what's on the test, but more what I've learned just from being around the amazing people in my class, they are so nice and kind to me. I'm the only girl in the class to so I don't ever feel like I'm being judged or talked about behind my back and I can really be myself in class.
