Dear Auntie Azza,
I’m currently in 8th grade and I’m taking Spanish. The course is very challenging, although the teacher is doing her best to help. I have been working so hard for the past two semesters, but I doubt I can pass the final exam. My parents advised me to continue attending the classes. They believe that I can succeed. I really don’t like this course at all, especially the speaking lessons because I can’t talk in front of others. I don’t know what to do. I only got 40% in the midterm exam. As I said previously I’m worried I will fail the exam at the end of the year. I have no idea what to do about this course because honestly it’s just not working for me Auntie. Please help!

|Dear Sara, Thank you so much for your e-mail. I really appreciate your writing to me about the challenges you are facing learning Spanish. Learning a foreign language is never easy. When I read your e-mail, I thought what a smart girl you are for having chosen Spanish. You know it is the most widely spoken language in the world other than English. It is spoken in twenty countries. There are almost five hundred million Spanish speakers worldwide. So if you keep up your Spanish Sara, you could be one of them. My best advice to you dear is to continue learning Spanish as you are smart. Remember you went through the same experiences when learning French and English and now you speak both fluently in addition to your own language, Arabic. This will help you fulfil your dream of getting a job at the United Nations after you have completed university. I will always be there for you my dearest niece. Much love, Auntie Azza|
