Madeira Elementary 2018-2019
Before-School Language Program

Madeira Elementary PTO is pleased to host the Before-school Language Program at MES again for 2018-2019! Spanish and Chinese will be offered. This program allows participants to engage in a year-long, in-depth approach to learning. Come visit our booth at the Parent Information Nights in August to find out more details!

The Program

  • Classes are taught by caring and enthusiastic teachers from the Cincinnati Spanish Academy (CSA).
  • Spanish is offered two days per week on Mondays and Thursdays for grades K-4, and Chinese is held one day per week on Tuesdays for grades 1-4.
  • CSA’s mission is to provide an enriching lesson complete with songs, listening exercises and age-appropriate, interactive activities.
  • This creative and developmental approach encourages involvement from all participants.
  • Students in grades K-4 can enroll in the program. There is a maximum of 14 students per class and a minimum of 7.

The Objetive

  • The objective of the program is to immerse kids in the language as much as possible so that kids acquire the language similar to how they learned their first language.
  • The focus is on understanding the spoken language, first attempts at using the language, and reinforcement through exercises in grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure.
  • Kids build on what they learn year-after-year and progress through basics such as colors, numbers, and letters through using various verb tenses and constructing basic phrases as vocabulary becomes more robust.

Schedule

  • Spanish grades 1-4: Mondays and Thursdays 8:05-8:50am starting September 17th (50 lessons total)
  • Spanish for Kindergarten: Mondays and Thursdays 8:05-8:45am starting October 1st (46 lessons total)
  • Chinese: Tuesdays 8:05-8:50am starting Sept 18th (25 lessons total)

  • Program observes school breaks/holidays (snow days/cancellations are made up at the end of the sessions).
