Financial Literacy in Foreign Language

Leah Koebke
As a former Spanish teacher and a current banker, I see the importance of learning about finances early on.  As a Spanish teacher we used money to practice numbers in Spanish and learn vocabulary related to finances.  We also talked about poverty and median incomes in other Spanish speaking countries.  I think in the future I could use the median income in other countries and have students research the prices of things like food and rent in an assigned country and make a budget to cover essential needs and stay within a specific income level.
