"Spanish 101" premiered on September 14th, 2009. It was written by Dan Harmon, and directed by Joe Russo.


When the group is paired off in Spanish class, Jeff contrives to get paired up with Britta, but ends up with Pierce instead, who is desperate for Jeff's approval.

After trying to study, Jeff gets frustrated with Pierce and blows him off. However, Britta manages to convince him to give Pierce another chance, by explaining that he looks up to Jeff. Jeff goes back to Pierce, and the two deliver a completely outrageous presentation. They end up with a failing grade.

Meanwhile, Annie and Shirley decide that they want to stand up for something and become activists like Britta said she was. So, the two stage a crazy protest against the murdering of journalists in Guatemala, complete with brownies and a stand of silence. Britta tries to tell them that they are doing it wrong, but later confesses that she really never organized a protest herself.

Jeff tries to win over by arranging to stand next her in the silent protest.
