Spanish with Cincinnati Spanish Academy –

Hola! Pleasant Ridge Montessori After-School Spanish Enrichment Program taught by Cincinnati Spanish Academy (CSA) is back for this school year. Students grades K-6 are invited to participate. Students enrolled in After School Care may also take Spanish and are escorted back to the program after class.

This program promotes the acquisition of the language in small groups (max 14 per class). Students are immersed in the language so that they acquire the language similar to their first language. The focus is on understanding the spoken language, first attempts at speaking, and fun activities in grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure. As this is an enrichment program there is no “official” homework or tests.

Foreign language skills are truly a passport to the world, helping students to develop skills for their future. Learning a language also enhances test scores, improves self-esteem, and exposes learners to different cultures. On top of that, learning Spanish is FUN!

Schedule: Tuesdays 2:15-3:05 starting October 1st for 22 weeks. Deadline to Enroll: Friday September 20th, 2019

Interested? Additional information and registration is available at www.cincinnatispanishschool.com/prm
