Spanish class with Paula
We're taking Spanish classes with my friend Paula and we absolutely love them. Jack took Spanish with her and now we're back for more with Bruno and Quetta (short for 'Enriquetta', this is what my 90 year old Mexican neighbor calls her). The class is really perfect. She uses the Sonrisas curriculum, which is an immersion program, so she speaks Spanish only for most of the class. The class is so engaging and fun for the little ones, all stories, songs, rhymes, books, and games... it really sinks in, even through my non-second-language-speaking, afraid-to-even-try head. Paula is so clear, calm, and caring and accepting of the kids... it's a wonderful class. It feels so good to take your kid to something that's enriching but you don't have to drag them there kicking and screaming. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in checking it out.
