It should be very important for the new coming student to learn a second language. In this country we have a lot of Spanish speaking people that live around us. If we are preparing our student to have the best education and we are also preparing them to be able to work with other people in the business field as well as in corporations that travel world wide, we need to incorporate Spanish as a second language program for our students. They will benefit and learn how to communicate with others that speak Spanish around them.
It is important for children to have the knowledge of a second language. It is our responsibility as an important institution, to provide the tools and knowledge to the students so that they are able to learn Spanish.

Before pairing into groups the students will be allowed to play games in the 123teachme.com site to refresh their memory with vocabulary words that way they can perform well in their group activity.
We will have a class that will last one semester and we will meet for two hours twice a week. In this semester we will start with the basics, where the students can learn and become more comfortable with the language and the assignments. They will have fun activities where the students will learn and enjoy themselves in the class. By having a family and friendly type of atmosphere.
