Learn Spanish at First Parish
Would you like to confidently greet newcomers to our congregation in Spanish? Do you yearn to follow the Spanish lyrics in worship? The Transformation Team is pleased to offer members and friends of First Parish a beginning Spanish class with a uniquely UU flair!
Our instructor, Ondina Paul, has 31 years of experience teaching Spanish. She is the founder and former director of “PanaAtitlan” Spanish School in Panajachel, Guatemala and has taught at Habla Espana, Boston Language Institute, Spanish Language Specialists, and the Covenant School. Ondina and her family are active in many First Parish programs.
The class will meet in the Baldwin Room on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Classes will be held from February 12 through April 29, with no class on February 19 (President’s Day weekend) and April 8 (Easter Sunday).
Tuition for the 10-week session is $150. There is also a materials fee for the textbook which is payable to the instructor on the first day of class. Space is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. To register, send a check to Carol Rabs, Congregational Administrator, made out to First Parish Cambridge with your name and contact information.
We’d like everyone who is interested to be able to participate. If you require financial assistance, please contact Julie Duncan at julieduncan [at] alum [dot] wellesley [dot] edu by January 15.
For those with some Spanish ability, free conversation groups begin Tuesday, January 10 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Baldwin Room and will be held every other week. All levels are welcome but conversation will be held entirely in Spanish. For more information, contact facilitators Denise Garcia (denisealexia [at] gmail [dot] com) or Karin Lin (kslnet [at] yahoo [dot] com).
