What’s cookin’? Language, culture, and FOOD often go hand in hand, which is why we’re so excited to be offering a Spanish immersion cooking class this fall! Miss Loruana, a native of Puerto Rico, will be bringing fun recipes from both her home country and some new healthy favorites that your kids will be sure to love. The benefits of this cooking class are two-fold: your child will expand their Spanish vocabulary around food, the kitchen, and cooking tools, AND it will also help them develop a new skill as Miss Loruana leads them step by step through the recipes, increasing their independence and self-confidence.
(Caregivers are invited to participate as needed for this class. Little guys will likely need lots of help (but this equals super fun bonding time!); older kids may not need any help. This class is full Spanish immersion, but participants are encouraged to ask questions as needed, either language.)
This class will be held via Zoom :) Outside of class time, we will use Google Classroom to share links, ingredients list, recipes, etc. Follow us on Instagram (www.instagram.com/bilinguitos) to see behind the scenes peeks at this class!

The delicious recipes and engaged time with my sons!
Having a written copy of the measurements so we can stay on track better but it does help with Spanish immersion to ask, "cuantas tazas"?!

We love Sarah JImena's energy and how she says all the student's names during Zumbini class. We also love seeing Sofía during class. My daughter always points and says: "Sofía!"

The music is fun, the movements are a good fit for the age group, and the instructor is cheery. We're really liking the new songs we're learning. It was also great that we got our full time this week since tech problems have kept the instructor from starting on time other weeks.
On a technical note, it's difficult to hear the instructor speaking while music is playing. We'd also love a little more interaction with the instructor. It's easy to find prerecorded yoga classes for kids on YouTube. However, a live class gives so much more opportunity for kids to build a relationship with the instructor, and the engagement of a live class (hearing her name, asking and answering questions, etc) is what keeps my child interested.

About Bilingüitos Spanish Immersion
Bilingüitos exists to cultivate and celebrate bilingualism all around us. We are locally run Spanish immersion programs based out of Loudoun County, Virginia. As of summer 2020 we are also happy to be offering online programs. We offer language classes and programs for children of all ages — Mommy & Me, Preschool, Afterschool, you name it. We also have classes for adult learners because we believe in bilingualism for all! In addition to teaching language through classroom games, activities, and lessons, we also believe in enrichment programs (think interdisciplinary skills anywhere from science experiments to art projects to cooking classes to yoga) because we want our students to be able to use their bilingualism across all domains. Both at our facility and through off-site private/charter classes, we are committed to our local community. For all those in the pursuit of bilingualism, we extend the opportunity to learners of all linguistic backgrounds — native speakers, heritage language students, and second language learners alike. Our mission in the classroom is to create a positive multicultural learning environment where our students explore and discover freely, immerse themselves in a new language and culture, and gain the self-confidence they need as they grow into future bilingual leaders. Beyond the classroom, we are a vibrant and diverse community of families who are passionate about bilingualism and dedicated to instilling a lifelong love for learning in their children. We delight in bringing our local bilingual community together through playdates, storytimes, seasonal parties, movie nights, and other events all around Loudoun. Finally, through our online resources like our blog and podcast, we aim to equip parents with the knowledge and tools they need in order to forge the path to bilingualism for their children. We believe that adding and maintaining a second language is not always easy, but that it is always, A L W A Y S worth it!
