If you’ve been reading the news lately, you may have seen lots of articles that recommend learning a new language to reduce the risk of getting dementia. But learning a new language can seem like a big step to some people. It’s also recommended that we keep up with our social and leisure activities, which might seem a bit easier. When you learn Spanish with me, you get to do both!
When people - young, old, employed, retired - learn with me, they look forward to the classes because I make it fun for them. I make it easy. We dance, we eat, we chat, we listen to music. They come to see me because I help them forget about the stress of learning, or the stress of exams if they are taking them. I’ll say to them, “imagine you are in a café in Spain, how will you ask for a coffee?”
