When I was in school, my experience in my foreign-language class was not so great. I didn’t feel like my teacher knew the language well or how to teach it. Even though she did her best, I discovered when I got to college that I was behind the other students in my class. I didn’t enjoy the subject and was frustrated because I had a lot of catching up to do. I want a better foreign-language experience for my kids, and I’m sure you do too. Our Distance Learning courses for Spanish can make that happen.
Spanish Is Important
The United States now has more Spanish speakers than any other nation except Mexico, and the number of Spanish speakers is expected to increase dramatically in the near future. Getting a foundation in Spanish at a young age has never been more important. Learning Spanish can open the door to a new world of employment and ministry opportunities. Consider other benefits of studying a foreign language.
Spanish Can Be Scary
I won’t beat around the bush. Teaching Spanish can be hard, especially if you (like most parents) aren’t fluent in the language. And knowing the right way to say things can be difficult even if you are. This could be one of those times when it’s best to delegate the teaching of a particular subject to an expert. And who has more expertise than a native Spanish speaker who also has a strong teaching background?
Meet Mrs. Kuhlewind
Let me introduce our newest Spanish teacher, Mrs. Aida Kuhlewind. Originally from Venezuela, where her parents are missionaries, she is a fluent speaker of Spanish and has first-hand experience with Hispanic culture. She’s also an accomplished Christian teacher. Señora Kuhlewind teaches our new Spanish 2 Distance Learning course. When we asked her about the course, she couldn’t stop talking about her goal of getting kids to love using Spanish so much that they want to use it outside of their academic course.
Inviting Mrs. Kuhlewind into your home means your kids will learn not just the language, but also about Spanish-speaking countries, their culture, and history. It’s like taking a field trip right in your living room. Your kids will love the lessons, and you’ll be confident they’ll be ready for advanced Spanish.
