Hola Amigos! Have you heard about the great Spanish Summer School for children aged 5 to12? Children will enjoy learning Spanish through a huge range of activities including songs, games, sports and arts and crafts. Learning a second language opens up an exciting new world of culture and customs to children and the benefit stays with them for the rest of their lives. Help your child get ahead by learning Spanish the fun way with the Amigos team. Why Spanish? With 400 million speakers, Spanish is the fourth most commonly spoken language in the world (after English, Chinese and Hindustani). It is widely spoken throughout South America and in many parts of the United States and is a popular second or third language; in Europe it is often the foreign language of choice after English. Why now? Children of primary school age learn a foreign language much easier than older children or adults. The Amigos team is led by Sorcha Turnbull, who is a qualified Spanish and French teacher and works for the Regional Primary languages Program within the SELB. Sorcha will be assisted by Moya Sands, who also qualified in Spanish at QUB and who teaches English at the University of Barcelona, and Eimear Keane who has a degree in Art Therapy from Derby University and works in St Louis Grammar School. The Amigos Spanish Summer School will be held from Monday 6th August to Friday 10th August in the comfortable surroundings of Rostrevor Youth Centre beside the Presbyterian Church. Classes run from 10 am to 2pm with a break for lunch between 12.15 and 1pm.
