Woods Hole, MA - Thanks to a grant from the Falmouth Cultural Council the WHPL is able to offer young children an introduction to speaking Spanish. The six-session program will be taught by María Pechuk who has been teaching Spanish to children since 2008.
Her program, called “Hola Spanish for Kids,” is designed for children from Kindergarten through 4th grade. The classes will be held on Tuesdays February 4, 11, 25 and March 3, 10, 17 at 4:30 PM. Classes are one hour long and the class size will be very limited so that the kids will get some individual attention.
Maria believes that children should have fun as they learn so she has developed enjoyable language immersion experiences. Through music, stories, games and dance the children will learn the language very naturally, from a native Spanish speaker. Small class size allows for individual attention, and the fun and relaxed class setting is designed to keep children interested while stimulating their learning process.
People may read more about her program at the website https://www.holaspanishforkids.com/. There is no charge for participants thanks to the grant from the Cultural Council, but people must sign up ahead of time. For more information and to register, call the Woods Hole Public Library at 508-548-8961.
The Woods Hole Public Library will hold an intensive “mini-course” for children to learn Spanish.Hola Spanish for Kids
My name is María Pechuk. I was born and raised in Argentina. Moved to the United States in 2001 with my two sons, Nicolas y Tomas. In Argentina, I taught Aerobics and dance to adults and children. I have been assisting in Cape Cod with the Children’s Spanish Immersion Classes and Camps at Language Links for the past decade.
I have been working and teaching kids Spanish in private lessons since 2008.
I am very excited to present my Program to different preschools and institutions at the Cape.
I am very thankful for the trust that parents and family members have given me. Taking care and teaching little ones my culture, music and language is very rewarding and something I really enjoy.

A fun experience in a new language!
Our classes are full of energy and a lot of games, songs, and time for children to make music with traditional instruments from Latin America – creating a natural environment for children to learn Spanish while having fun together. It basically works as mini-foreign language immersion linked to the things children love to do.
We use the natural approach to expose the children to Spanish. That means that children listen and speak the language while playing, singing, dancing, enjoying puppet shows and having fun time.
Movement and joy.
Our program makes use of movement activities to connect language to actions, helping the muscles and brain reinforce each other’s memory retention. This method is called TPR (Total Physical Response) and is used by many foreign language teachers around the world.
