Spanish language education  through culture

On a mission to foster intergenerational connections and literacy en español

Why

Spanish plays a vital role in our family and community life, forging emotional bonds and cultural connections among generations.

 

However, the Spanish-speaking population of Latin American origin outside the region faces linguistic and identity challenges due to limited resources and opportunities.

About

That is why we got together to create an enrichment program that provides students with opportunities to expand on their Spanish skills

Our curriculum results from a team effort based on interdisciplinary pedagogy developed by Dr. Maria Luisa Parra (Harvard University), who has more than 10 years of experience teaching Spanish to Latino children and youth in the U.S. and advocating for their identities and well-being through language education, Marcela Fritzler (Sin Fronteras),  is dedicated to teaching Spanish in the context of Europe and Asia and is the author of LE/L2 and LH materials and Gabriela Badillo (Hola Combo) for whom images carry cultural meaning and are intrinsic part of any educational project.
