Foreign Language Classes

We’ve had quite an increase this year in programs available for foreign languages. Here’s what’s available:

Spanish

  1. The Cleveland Museum of Art, one of our favorite providers, will present a couple of their programs in Spanish if requested.
  2. The Indianapolis Museum of Art offers an excellent interactive program called the Speak to Learn Game Show. It’s available in Spanish, French, German or ESL! I love this program. Kids speak in the language about the art they are viewing and get points & medals for their work in the game show. Very fun. Students often say afterwards, “We should talk in the language more!”
  3. Global Education Motivators has a program, Recognizing the Rights of People with Disabilities that can be presented in Spanish. The presenter is a gymnast from Columbia who suffered an injury to her spinal cord while performing on the vault. This sounds like a powerful program for English or Spanish!
  4. The Indianapolis Zoo has a new program on Animales en Español. It says K-8 but would probably be good for a 1st year Spanish class as well.
  5. Camden Children’s Garden is offering all of their programs in Spanish this year (as well as English).
  6. The Videoconference Organization Seminary in Spain offers several programs. A little on the pricey side, but they are a connection to Spain!
  7. To my local teachers: In addition, I have a couple contacts in Latin America that we could set you up with a class to class conversation if you wish. You could also connect to another local Spanish class and talk to them en Español if you wish. A couple neat projects ideas are: Epals Hablar and Simon Dice.
