What are the benefits of taking Spanish 3 as an online summer course during high school?

Hola friends! I’ve taken Spanish 1 and 2 at school and am thinking about doing Spanish 3 online this summer. Would this be a smart move for showing language proficiency, or should I stick to the traditional school year schedule? Need some advice for college prep stuff here.

Hey there! Kudos to you for being proactive about your language studies. Taking Spanish 3 online during the summer sounds like a great idea for several reasons. Importantly, it demonstrates to colleges your commitment to mastering the language beyond just meeting the basic requirements.

Additionally, completing this course over the summer allows you to free up your schedule during the school year for other challenging classes or extracurriculars that align with your interests or academic goals. Colleges do appreciate seeing students who effectively manage their time and seek opportunities to challenge themselves.

Just be sure that the online course is rigorous and from an accredited program, as colleges will consider the quality of the courses you take. Plus, attaining a higher level of Spanish proficiency could potentially open up more opportunities for you, like studying abroad or participating in language immersion programs. Keep up the great work, and don't forget to enjoy your summer as well!
