"Through my studies, I was given an extensive knowledge of the Spanish language. Not only have my studies helped me improve upon my Spanish abilities, but also through my experience studying abroad and through my classes I was given a global perspective. Because of this, I believe I will be a prepared and competent Spanish teacher in the future."
