Fall 2017 Youth Programs
After-School Spanish provides an opportunity for elementary students to gain exposure to the Spanish language at an early age. Children in grades Kindergarten–5th will have fun learning about the basics including pronunciation, alphabet and number review, vocabulary building, common phrases and simple conversation. After-School Spanish will be offered this semester at various local elementary schools. Those students who have already completed a semester or more of Spanish are encouraged to enroll to reinforce and continue their study. Curriculum is rotated each year to accommodate both new and returning students. Review work is extremely important for retention and each semester includes review work plus NEW Material. Instructors in the After-School Spanish Program bring a broad range of experiences to the classroom. Students will learn from instructors that have a solid background in Spanish and a strong desire to work with children as they discover how to communicate in a new language. Some of our instructors are university students who are studying Spanish and/or Education and have been recommended by university professors for participation in the program. Other instructors from the community bring a combination of classroom teaching experience, tutoring experience and foreign language skills. All of the instructors work together to create learning environments that are fun, creative and challenging.
Completed health forms must be provided at check-in on the first day of league AND an adult must accompany student at check-in in order to participate.
