Service learning and language learning share many of the same goals, such as interacting with others within the world community. Therefore, it only stands to reason that service-learning would be an excellent asset to language teaching. In this paper, both how and why to incorporate service-learning into the language classroom will be discussed, with a specific example of what could be done in Intermediate or Advanced Spanish courses at the university/college level. This practical model involves: service learning possibilities, reflection activities, a community government simulation exercise, and student reactions.
