Des Plaines Park District

Full Immersion Spanish Classes

The Des Plaines Park District is proud to offer a variety of Full Immersion Spanish Programs!

 All programs are taught by Specialty Instructor Laura Meza.

Within the Spanish Immersion Programs we are aware of all of the learning levels and experiences with the Spanish Language. Señora Meza takes all of this into account when designing and implementing her diverse curriculum to meet the needs for all students. The content and research based practices target literacy, support multicultural aspects and is culturally sensitive. Each week is broken up further into units that will connect towards the end of the month. Señora Meza, a native Spanish-speaker utilizes innovative approaches to ensure long-term memory and vocabulary retention while improving the child’s writing skills and listening comprehension.
