About Yessenia

In my undergraduate work I tested out of the maximum 12 hours of the 21 credit hours needed for my Spanish Minor by taking the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Exam. Before graduating, I also took the American Council on the teaching of Foreign Languages Writing Proficiency Exam and the Oral Proficiency Exam, where I scored as Advanced Mid on the oral exam and the writing proficiency exam, According to the ACTFL proficiency guidelines.

As a child, the elementary school that I attended had a program knows as the Dual Language program. The Dual Language Program’s goal was to provide the student with additive bilingualism, bi-literacy, and high academic achievement in two languages. Classroom instruction along with curriculum was 50% given in Spanish and 50% given in English. Along with these goals, the program required each student to study and practice a foreign language. My Parents chose for me to learn Japanese starting in Kindergarten on top of the Spanish and English I already knew. In order for the student to graduate Dual Language senior year of high school, the student had to be enrolled in the program from kindergarten and up to the student’s senior year without being taken out of the program for more than a year. For 12 years my education was 50% in Spanish and 50% in English, meanwhile all learning to speak a Japanese.

In college, I was a Spanish Conversation Tutor and a Spanish Conversation partner for 2 years until the program was terminated.
