PRCR offering Spanish classes for children in March & April

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 4:27pm

On Thursdays from March 5-26 and April 16-May 27, the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department will offer a series of classes at the Flaherty Park Community Center, 1225 N. White St., for children ages 2-11 interested in learning Spanish. The instructor for each class is Saida Bowlin.

From 10:15-11 a.m., the PRCR will offer “Full-Immersion Spanish for Preschoolers.” Children ages 2-5 will be immersed in Spanish, just as they were immersed in English as a baby. Participants will learn through interactive games, activities, crafts, and music with a native Spanish speaker. The cost is $45 for Wake Forest residents and $60 for non-Wake Forest residents.

“Jump into Spanish” is available to children ages 5-7 from 11-11:45 a.m. Students will become familiar and comfortable with hearing spoken Spanish. They will learn to respond to basic questions such as name, age, and what they like. No vocabulary lists – just full sentences, music, games and fun! The cost is $40 for Wake Forest residents and $55 for non-Wake Forest residents.

Finally, for children ages 8-11, “Exploring Spanish” is scheduled from noon-1 p.m. Students will learn how to use full sentences to communicate what they like and ask questions in Spanish. They will learn the Spanish alphabet and the sounds of each letter so they are able to accurately pronounce the new words they see. Students will play games and interact with the teacher and each other to improve their speaking. The cost is $40 for Wake Forest residents and $55 for non-Wake Forest residents.
