Did you know that being able to read and write in your first language will help you to learn English? Studies show that fluency and literacy in your native language leads to a transfer of skills to your second language. That’s why in the fall, El Ballet Folklórico Estudiantil will be providing free Spanish literacy classes at Richfield Public Academy to help you lay a good language-learning foundation by improving writing and reading skills in Spanish. If you’d like to learn more about these classes before you register, we will be having three fiestas with food, music, and dancing in August where you can learn more about the program and its benefits. These classes are for children, adults, Spanish speakers, and non-Spanish speakers. To learn more and get updates on our informational fiestas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
