If you have ever considered learning a new language but thought you were “too old” to tackle such an endeavor, think again. Researchers have discovered that learning a new language at any age can have major brain benefits.
I know that you have all been waiting for the Spanish class to start! Well, it’s almost here. Wouldn’t it be fun to be able to chat with the server while eating in a Mexican restaurant? Or to be able to say, “Oh, es muy caro?” (Oh, it’s very expensive!) If the answer to either of the above is yes, then join the Conversational Spanish class being offered at SunBird. As one of the students exclaimed, “It’s painless.” Besides, no tests, no grades, just fun!
The beginning class will begin Monday, Jan. 3, 2022, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Hopi Room. The fee for each six-week session is only $40. We always enjoy a Spanish class outing, lunch, or whatever. Members of the class get together and go out for a Mexican meal (or Chinese if they prefer—just kidding!). We laugh a lot and have a great time. It’s cheaper than therapy.
A sign-up sheet will be posted in the clubhouse. The class is open to anyone, not just SunBird residents. Bring a friend.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the instructor Jeanne Capeloto at 480-895-0739.
Hasta la vista, baby!
