¡Feliz mes de la Herencia Hispana! | Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!

News & Teachers ·

From September 15 - October 15, time is taken to appreciate and honor the contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans to the culture, history and heritage of the United States. Originally started as “Hispanic Heritage Week” under President Lyndon Johnson, President Ronald Reagan expanded the week to cover a 30-day period and it was enacted into law on August 17, 1988.

This is also a significant month for many Latin American countries. September 16th is dia de la independencia for México, and Centroamerica celebrates independencia on the 15th of September.

Latinx influences in pop culture can be seen in a variety of ways. In the music industry, for example, artists like Luis Fonsi are breaking billboard music records while artists such as J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Prince Royce continue to top the charts with reggaeton and bachata hits as well.

    Please respect Hispanics in the comments. This a site for education and educated people and it is NOT for race-hatred. Besides COLOMBIA is written with O, it is NOT Columbia..

    Also, STOP HATING. If you have something nasty to say (and there's a reason why it's called nasty) then keep it to yourself.

    Buenos dias, Chad y amigos hispanohablantes. Buon giorno, a tutti gli amici di lingua madre.
    ! Feliz mes de la herencia hispana! Felice Mese della Cultura Italiana.

    It's wonderful to be able to live in a country where everyone's heritage can be celebrated as it should be. We are all American, and most of us have our roots in another country. Why not celebrate the best of both worlds. I have been an Italian and Spanish teacher for many years, and I've always taught the two languages and respective cultures conscientiously and well. I have my students use Quizlet on a regular basis for the obvious reasons: The resources I have created for both my Italian and Spanish students are a great source of educational fun for my students. Blogs such as this one posted are very much appreciated, and I am very hopeful that Quizlet will be mindful in posting similar blogs to celebrate "October: Italian Heritage Month" as well. Grazie!

    What exactly is Hispanola

  88. Andrew-Cubs2 PLUS

    I found it out-it is Haiti and the Dominican Republic. It is due south of around Montauk, NY, or Westerly, RI. That is around 100 miles west of where I live in Plainview, NY, along NY-135 and close to Suffolk County

  91. A-Stranger-Trustme

    Happy Hispanic Heritage Month, *Mi gente*! It warms my heart to know that diversity of peoples' cultures are being celebrated, and loved...--Hm! I'm feeling inspired (to) *dibujar* lil' comics in favour of this celebration! I know a decent amount of *Espanol* (Thanks, Duolingo and *la clase de Espanol*) in order to make a sensible yet realistic dialogue...*que divertido!*. I can't wait to do it! But *yo tengo que hacer* research...*Porque, yo quiero* my work to be accurate! It will be so worth it in the end, though! I gotta hurry up though...because this celebration ends on *el quince de Octobre*...Wow! that's the *dia* after *mi cumpleanos*, the 14th! (we have the same birthday, ParkerFam7!)--*Gracias*, Quizlet for reminding me about this celebration! (heh, I've really made a loooong comment here, It's because it's one of my uncontrollable habits (to) *escribir mucho*, and *yo estoy muy contento*!!) (i'm sorry if my bits of spanish is inaccurate. I used 100% memory...)

  92. A-Stranger-Trustme

    oh! I'm DEFINITELY using the Hispanic Heritage quizlet study sets shown above for my research to make my comic more accurate! Thanks again, Quizlet!
