Music is the international language…

What better way is there to learn another language than through music?  Utilizing, students are listening to and learning songs in Spanish class and having lots of fun doing it!

Through the use of various levels of cloze activities, students discern the lyrics through listening skills alone and develop an ear for the distinct sounds of Spanish. Try it out for yourself!  There are loads of languages to chose from!

¿Por qué construimos una torre de mondadientes y malvaviscos?

malvaviscos 1Lots of first-day Spanish fun with team-building exercises today.  Students worked in random groups to see who could create the tallest toothpick marshmallow tower.

What does this have to do with learning a world language, you ask?  Here are some of our student’s responses:

“To learn how to work with others”
“Communicate and collaborate”
“To change and adapt a plan when something isn’t working”
“To make connections…literally”

All great answers!  Learning a language is all about making connections in the community and also learning how to work effectively with others.  I think they got it!
