Kids Can Learn Spanish in Summer Class

A Taste of Spanish is offered in July.

MAY 19, 2014 -- Kids can get a “taste of Spanish” in an introductory Spanish language course offered through Allan Hancock College Community Education’s summer College for Kids.  A Taste of Spanish is for children who know little or no Spanish and who are entering 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade in the fall.  Students are introduced to speaking and writing Spanish at a basic level and will explore aspects of the Latin-American culture through fun activities.

The class meets Monday – Thursday mornings, July 14-24, from 9 to 11 a.m. on the AHC Santa Maria campus, Room S-110.  The enrollment fee is $96, plus a $4 materials fee.  Pre-register in person at Community Education, bldg. S, on the AHC Santa Maria campus.  The course number is 10622.  Registration will not be accepted in the classroom.

Instructor Enedina Castañeda believes that children benefit from learning a different language at a young age.

“Spanish is the third most common language spoken in the world.  This is a great opportunity for children to explore both culture and language in one class,” she says.  “As an educator and a parent, I strongly believe that through learning a second language, children can explore and discover new worlds that will enhance their minds and their cognitive performance in different ways.”
