Forsyth County Homeschoolers (and the surrounding areas)
Homeschoolers near Clemmons are fortunate to have an opportunity this year to learn more about the the culture and language of Ecuador!
This just in from our friend, Veronica, homeschool support group leader for the NC Adventurous Home Educators:
Spanish classes will now be offered in Clemmons beginning the first Tuesday of September! My friend, Zandra Martinez, will be teaching these classes. Zandra is native to Quito, Ecuador. She is very excited about teaching not only her language, but some fascinating facts about Ecuador and Spanish culture. Her classes will be fun, engaging, and highly educational! Classes will be for all ages and parents are welcome to attend as well.
Beginner classes will be held starting Tuesday, September 1st from 9:00 am – 10:00 am. These classes are for persons with no prior Spanish knowledge. The goal for these classes will be that children will leave knowing basic conversational Spanish. This will include: Greetings, Numbers, Colors, Alphabet, Days of the Week, Months of the Year, Seasons, Foods, Feelings, Members of the Family, and Clothes. Additional material may be covered, depending on the academic progression of the class.
Intermediate classes will be held starting Tuesday, September 1st from 10:15 am – 11:15 am. These classes will primarily focus on the written language of Spanish, as well as provide greater in-depth conversational Spanish. The goal for this class is for students to master basic writing in Spanish. This will include, but not limited to, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Phrases. Students will be able to carry on a short conversation in Spanish after completing these classes. Some Spanish knowledge is required to enroll in this class.
Advanced classes will be held starting Tuesday, September 1st from 11:30 -12:30 pm. These classes will be conducted primarily in Spanish. These classes will continue to focus on writing and conversational Spanish, but in greater depth. Students completing these classes will be able to write and speak Spanish for every day use. Prior knowledge of both written and conversational Spanish is required for this class.
Every class, Beginner through Advanced, will also be taught some Spanish culture. No textbook will be needed for any class. Mrs. Martinez will be providing all class material. Please do come with a pen/pencil and a notebook. Each student will be expected to practice Spanish and complete any assignments that the instructor may give during the week. Classes will be taught according to the Forsyth County public school schedule. Additionally, there will be an immersion opportunity next summer to Quito, Ecuador for those families that are interested.
Class size is limited to 10 participants and parents are included in the class size, if attending. If classes meet the maximum capacity, Mrs. Martinez will open alternate days and times for extra classes. The fee for these classes will be $50 per month for one student or $100 a month for a family. All payments are due at the beginning of each month.
If you are unsure which class your student may fall into, please let Mrs. Martinez know this and she will be able to help you.
Please private message me for Mrs. Martinez’s contact information. Thank you!
