Building Spanish language skills for the native Spanish speaking student isn’t as easy as it might sound. In fact, it’s something many bilingual educators find difficult. The bottom line is this: the way one goes about building initial literacy skills is different in Spanish than English!
Upcoming trainings on Esperanza, the Spanish language multisensory, structured language program for the Spanish speaking student, will be led by industry expert Elsa Cárdenas Hagan. Designed for grades K-2, the goal of the Esperanza program is to systematically and cumulatively develop a strong knowledge of the structure of the Spanish language so that they student can read, write, and spell in his/her primary language. Use the links below to discover more about each of the two trainings, and register before time runs out.
