TERM AUTUMN 2017
PRESENTATION NOVEMBER 28TH at 4:15 pm
Learning a language is a lifelong commitment.
Our aim is to ensure children understand and learn to love the Spanish language and to gain good listening and speaking skills. We use lively role play, games, bingos, songs and activities to make the Spanish culture both enjoyable and memorable.
It is a pleasure to teach your children and I hope they enjoy as much as we do. If you have specific questions, please see me after the club or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
