I created this group when I became a stay-at-home mom of twins boys four years ago. Being a native from Chile, I realized how important it was to teach my children Spanish, and I began to look for resources in my community to expose my children to a Spanish-speaking only environment. I did some research and was unable to identify such a program. I was concerned about the lack of opportunities for young children to learn Spanish and decided to open my own enrichment language program.
My children are almost five years old, and I went back to work full-time, but I kept the meetup group because I know there's a need of having a community program where families can meet, make new friends and learn a new language together.
Thanks to my children inspiration and my meetup teaching experience, I decided to pursue my master's in Spanish teacher (k-12) this year. So now, I am very limited with time and I had to make a few changes on the group's membership and participation. I will organize two activities/meetups per month, which are the bilingual story telling and a meetup for arts and crafts. During the months of July and August, I organize meetups at the beach, picnics at the park, trips to the city, visits to museums and events related to Spanish language and culture. Starting this year, members are required to host one meetup per month, either at home or meet a public facility where children can play and learn an activity in Spanish.
I am looking for professional families whose interest is learn along with their children and who can commit to our meetups each month. We ask for a yearly membership of $10.00 which encourage members to become engaged to our group. The fee should be received in within five days from the date you join (please contact the organizer for membership fee questions). Some events will required additional fees to either cover expenses for food, materials, tickets, etc.
I also offer private Spanish classes for children ages 6mo - 12 years old. Families put a group of 4 children in each class, and sign up for either 6,8,10 or 12 weeks. I will either teach at your home or mine. The cost for private group classes is $60 per hour( which can be split within the 4 families). You can request more details about the classes via email at email@example.com
Spanish has become one of the most important languages spoken in the U.S and the world. This group is a great source for you and your children to learn about the Spanish speaking world.
Thanks for visiting my meetup group and I look forward to meeting you at our next meetup!
