Do you want to learn Spanish while having fun? Participants will learn Spanish vocabulary and acquire pronunciation skills to help connect with Latino or Hispanic students. Teachers often struggle to identify ways to communicate with and integrate their Spanish speaking students. Immersion and practice through hands-on activities will teach participants the skills needed for meeting these students’ needs. New and creative activity ideas and ways to infuse Spanish language into lessons will be included.
