Children's Spanish classes offered at Hancock


Kids can get an introduction to the Spanish language in a new, introductory Spanish course offered through Allan Hancock College Community Education’s College for Kids.


The class, “A Taste of Spanish,” is for children who have little or no background in the language who are entering second, third, or fourth grade in the fall. Students will be introduced to speaking and writing Spanish at a basic level and will explore aspects of the Latin American culture through fun activities.


Instructor Enedina Castañeda believes that children benefit from learning a different language at a young age.


“As an educator and a parent, I strongly believe that through learning a second language, children can explore and discover new worlds that will enhance their minds and their cognitive performance in different ways,” she said in a press release. “


The class will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 9 through Aug. 1, from 9 to 11 a.m. The fee is $96, plus a $4 materials fee. Register in person at Community Education Office, which is in building S on the Santa Maria campus.
