In partnership with Language Sprout Learning Center, Sunny Hollow offers after school Mandarin Chinese and Spanish language lessons for children ages 5 to 12. Classes are interactive and include movement, games, singing, role-playing, and self-directed activities. Children learn to have discussions using first, second, and third person. They learn to read and write through translating and sentence-building exercises. As students increase their learning in the level II classes, they become confident and conversive in a variety of practical vocabulary themes.
Spanish (grades K-6th): 3:30 – 5:00 pm Tuesdays
Chinese (grades K-6th): 3:30 – 5:00 pm Thursdays
