ACHS Students Experience Spanish and Business

On Friday, the Anderson County High School held a special event for its advanced Spanish students.  Put together by Spanish teacher, Brittany Baxter, the students got to recreate the famous Boqueria market in Barcelona, Spain, and immerse themselves in Spanish culture and language.

To create the mock market, the students had to bring in their own product, decorate their area, and essentially create their own restaurant type business.  They also had to keep everything in Spanish, from signage to communicating with their customers. “They’ve done everything they had to do to get their restaurant running smoothly,” Brittany said.

But besides getting an opportunity to speak Spanish like as if they were in Spain, the event also gave them responsibility and training on how to run a business.  The students were given money and had to create budgets before they could purchase items from others in the market.  “It gives the kids a real life opportunity,” Brittany said.
