Spring Tribe Update from Ruth

calendarThursday, 14 April

¡Hola!

Spring is here and summer is coming quick! Time keeps flying — as I’m sure it is flying for you! We have been working on a number of exciting projects. The video below will catch you up on what’s going on here at Sombrero Time.

Seeing students speak Spanish on video and in cross-cultural adventures has been an overall highlight this year!  From Mexicali with my daughter to Costa Rica with Sombrero Time families last spring break, we have been on the move.  I can’t encourage you enough to not wait for the adventure to come to you.  Grab hold of it and come to Perú or go somewhere with your family.  It will change you, as well as be fun and rewarding to see your children using their Spanish.

If you can’t go, take advantage of our Friendship & Fun Summer Session! Registration is open and class sizes are limited — so jump in!  Classes sell out so don’t miss your opportunity to speak Spanish with us over the summer.

Fall Registration Update – Keep your eyes peeled for our fall enrollment email coming soon.

Jr. High Spanish Update – This fall our Jr. High program run Tuesday to Friday 2:45-3:30pm at our Granite Bay facility to keep our students speaking Spanish and working as interns in our after school classes. The class is half instruction and half working as interns.

 

Have a beautiful weekend!

Ruth, Dave and the team here at Sombrero Time
