Kids Learning Spanish with Sombrero Time

user by sombrerotime
calendarFriday, 27 May

Greetings everyone!

As many of you already know our instruction philosophy leverages frequent exposure to Spanish in a fun and immersive class room environment.  One of the greatest benefits of Sombrero Time is the rapid pace which students begin to learn and use their language skills.  To demonstrate this we are publishing a series of videos featuring students in our programs, all at various levels of development, having two way conversations with their instructors.  The first of our videos is published below.  Enjoy the Spanish being spoken and kindly provide your comments.

user by sombrerotime
calendarFriday, 27 May

Hey everyone!
We just printed new Tee-Shirts and wanted to share the design with you. The characters are from our iPad app currently in development. There are about 100 kids wearing these shirts as of this week.  The response has been great and we are SOLD OUT already!  DON’T WORRY!  We are planning to place another order.  Here is how you can reserve a shirt for your student:

Send us an email and indicate the following:
-Student Name:
-Shipping Address (if not local to Granite Bay, CA)
-Tee Shirt Design: Boy or Girl
-Size: Youth Small, Youth Medium or Youth Large

Shirts Cost $20 each.  In order to guarantee this price we need 100 tee-shirts or greater to be reserved.  Shirts can be reserved now through June 15, 2011.  On June 16 we will contact you with payment instructions.   After all shirts have been paid for we will place our order with our printer.  If you are a Loomis Basin Charter family we will deliver the shirts to your school for pickup.  Otherwise, shipping costs will be calculated based on your shipping address from Granite Bay, CA 95746 using UPS ground service.

That’s it!

Oh, and please leave your comments on the design.

Private Spanish Tutoring in Granite Bay – Recently Expanded

user by sombrerotime
calendarThursday, 12 May

Last year Sombrero Time launched a Private Tutoring program in response to parents who were seeking a flexible solution for their students.  We are pleased to announce we have recently expanded this service to all ages!   Sombrero Time Personal Spanish Tutoring sessions couple our immersion philosophy in a fun and interactive environment creating a very effective experience.  “Immersion”-what does that mean?  Great question!  It means we use “Spanish to teach Spanish” which develops language skills you can use in the real world.

Regardless of your education or skill level Sombrero Time Private Tutoring is right for any level or age.  Each session is scheduled with one of our native speaking instructors and is conducted at the Sombrero Time Education Facility in Granite Bay where we provide access to great resources in a sound instructional environment.  If you have not been to our Education Facility we invite you drop by for a visit.  Our facility is conveniently located in the heart of Granite Bay near Granite Bay High School in the Treelake Village Center.

Upon connecting with Sombrero Time we will create a customized schedule to fit your needs, establish goals for learning and connect you with one of our instructors.  Currently we have students scheduled from 1-4 days per week taking 45 minutes of focused instruction per session.  If you are new to learning Spanish, getting ready to travel, or preparing for an AP exam, our instructors will tailor a program designed to accelerate your learning experience while having a great time.
