My 10 year old looked forward to the writing class every week. A WRITING CLASS...on a SATURDAY! She said it was "fun, and not anything like school."
My daughter is in a dual language program at school, but we do not speak Spanish at home. Working with Semillas Bilingues has allowed her to maintain good grades and increase her confidence in speaking Spanish.
I was so excited to see my child more confident in reading out loud. She actually enjoys reading now. This is the 1st year she received an excellence award and it was in Writing. I’ve have seen great changes since her enrollment in Semillas Bilingues!
Amanda loves book club with Ms. Rita. Every week is excited to go and goes on and on, in Spanish when she gets home. We have seen great improvement in her vocabulary, comprehension and confidence in Spanish since working with Ms. Rita.

I thought book club was really fun and interactive. Everyone got to read together as a group. We had a really fun time reading books. Thank you Ms Rita!

Semillas Bilingües believes that if you can create a space for a group of children to speak, read, learn, and play with each other in Spanish, their relationships could begin to straddle both languages more fluidly. This belief is what resulted in the creation of Semillas Bilingües: Planting bilingual seeds through Spanish Immersion Classes.
