(registration still required)

Join PBLS Executive Director Jared McCannell for a weekly FREE Spanish language program, Spanish Songs & Stories for families with children at home (infant, toddler, pre-k and homeschool students and their families are our typical participants). This class focuses on basic exposure to foreign language and culture through traditional folk and children’s songs from Spain and Latin America. Vocabulary and themes are reinforced through read aloud activities with children’s books, poems, and other authentic sources. This class is great for parents who want to learn along with their children as they start their lifelong language journey. 

This class was sponsored by a local participating family to be open and free to all families that would like to participate. Classes are held outside (weather pending) and the indoor accommodations are spacious and comfortable.

Private & Semi-Private Youth Tutorials

Scheduling is dependant on instructor availability (5-10 week sessions)
Online/In-person options
Pricing varies 

We offer youth tutorials in just about every language we offer with our online and in-person adult classes. Tutorials (1:1) and semi-private tutorials (two or more students) offer a wonderful jump start on language learning–at any age. Semi-private lessons are for groups of two or more who wish to study with another person (i.e. a friend from school or a family member). Costs reflect the number of students for 10 hours of private instruction ranging from $265 – $395 based on standard pricing. Please contact Jared McCannell at [email protected] with inquiries regarding private and semi-private tutorials for youth learners, and/or more information about payment options for families–including any current discounts, promotions, or subsidies applicable/available at time of enrollment.
