I believe that there comes a time in every foreign language teacher’s life when they come across the infamous phrase: “Why do I have to learn this, can’t they all just learn English?” Well, in response to the incessant whining of middle class American students everywhere, this documentary boldly tries to answer that question once and for all. “Why do I need to learn Spanish” is a 23 minute documentary addressing five good reasons why the average American student needs to specifically learn the Spanish language and how being bilingual in America is no longer a convenience, but a necessity.
