Students learn to see the world through a different lens while acquiring language skills and the confidence to use them. Young learners are especially primed for language learning - research shows that students are 70% more likely to gain fluency when they begin in elementary school. We are excited to offer Spanish at Thurgood Marshall this fall with our engaging, research-driven curriculum, taught completely in language. Students learn important, everyday language through exciting thematic units and a wide variety of interactive games, activities, songs and art projects. Our goal is to build a strong foundation of comprehension and communication skills, all while having FUN! For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (425) 274-5188. Monday Class Dates: Classes run 10/5/15 – 5/16/16. No class 1/18/15 (Martin Luther King Day), 2/15 (Mid-winter break).
