Spanish Classes Available

Local Spanish classes now enrolling! Please feel free to share with other homeschooling families.

Please read the following basic information and let me know if you are interested in enrolling. Classes are reasonably priced and meet in my area.

About the classes:
The first class is designed to help home educating families fulfill the foreign language graduation requirement. Beginning students ages 12+ will learn Spanish vocabulary, grammar, and conversation through written and oral exercises, games, songs, and conversational practice. Students must be willing to devote 15 minutes a day outside class to language practice and homework. Required text is Spanish is Fun by Heyward Wald. (I can obtain the text for less than $10.)

The second class is for the beginning student, ages 6-11. This fun and relaxed class will cover Spanish names, colors, numbers, basic conversation, some basic vocabulary, and more. Songs, crafts, and games make this class an enjoyable introduction to an important and practical language. No previous Spanish is necessary and no homework is required, although practice suggestions will be given. No text is required, but a $5 copy fee is needed for handouts.

About the teacher:
Since the age of 8, Lisa Wagner has been fascinated by the Spanish language and culture. She graduated from college with her teaching degree and an endorsement in K-8 Spanish. For more than twenty years, she has enjoyed teaching Spanish to both kids and adults. She is also a home-educating mom of 4 kids ages 7-14 and a homeschool group leader in Lapeer County. Spare time is scarce, but Lisa likes to spend it reading, writing, scrapbooking, and watching movies. Her goal this year was to run a 5K for the first time.
