Would you pay for beginner Spanish classes for your elementary age children?
A question was just asked about whether children should learn a foreign language at an early age. I actually, when I first moved to TN, thought about giving Spanish classes to neighborhood kids. It would be fairly informal and fun to get them started on feeling comfortable in another language and learning the basics. I was thinking young children, I was hoping there might be a workbook available that has fun exercises and I could help them with pronounciation, and maybe do projects like make churros on the day we learn the vocabulary for various foods, stuff like that.
After seeing the answers from the collective, I am revisiting this idea. Here are my additional question:
- What ages do you think would be interested?
- Can it be in my home, or would I need a “space” maybe at the school, if they will let me use it (the lem school is accross the street from me).
- Should the class be 30 minutes? 45, an hour?
- How much would you be willing to pay? Plus, keep in mind you would have to pay for the workbook if I use a workbook (I think I would as a guide).
