The families of all the students served by LEAP-Bilingual PreK and Tutoring program are getting excited about the LEAP Lunch! It's going to be Thursday, April 25th at 12pm. We have been offered a table since we are a really active bilingual group! Come eat, make a donation to support their non-profit, and meet families that would love to have language exchange partners too! Tulia Pascht, Outreach Coordinator for Project Enlightenment at Wake County Schools and a member of the Governor's Hispanic/Latino Advisory Council is the speaker. There will be a song by the students and free lunch made by all the families of the students.(SOOOO amazing food!!!) Come and see all the good work they do and make a donation to help them keep helping Hispanic 4 year olds in Durham prepare for Kindergarten and help tutor other students at night as well!
NEW location! We are now meeting at Anita's Pupuseria on the fourth Thursday of the month from 6:30-8:00pm. Anita's is located next to the Trosa Thrift store at 3000 N. Roxboro St. They have Salvadorian food that is delicious and inexpensive! The owners have given us permission to take over the right hand side of the restaurant and we sit at the 4 top tables in smaller groups. This has worked well so far because we can hear better and more people have time to talk with native speakers of both languages. We spend some time in English (with native/advanced speakers helping English Language Learners) and in Spanish (with native/advanced speakers helping Spanish Language Learners). We build community and form meaningful cross-cultural and cross-linguistic relationships. All levels welcome! Lugar Nuevo! Ahora nos quedamos en Anita's Pupuseria el cuarto jueves cada mes de 6:30 a 8:00pm. Esta ubicada al lado de la tienda de segundas- Trosa Thrift - 3000 N ROXBORO ST, Durham, NC 27704. Tienen comida Salvadorena y es deliciosa y no cuesta mucho. Los gerentes nos han dado permiso para ocupar las mesas del lado derecho y nos sentamos en grupitos de 4 personas. Esto funciona bien porque se oye mejor y todo el mundo tiene la oportunidad de hablar. Pasamos tiempo en inglés (hablantes nativos/avanzados ayudando a personas que quieren aprender inglés) y en español (hablantes nativos/avanzados ayudando a personas que quieren aprender español). Juntos fomentamos nuestra comunidad y hacemos relaciones con hablantes de otras culturas e idiomas. Todos niveles son bienvenidos!! **disculpa por mis errores en español... sigo aprendiendo siempre!!
