Hands-On Language is a language immersion program that uses hands-on activities to facilitate learning. We believe that an optimal learning environment is one that is alive with playfulness and support. Each class is based on a specific theme and students build vocabulary and sentence construction through a variety of activities including arts+crafts, games, songs and stories. Many of our arts+crafts projects double as language learning tools for students to continue practicing with at home. We embrace the unique participation of every child and are dedicated to offering language learning environments that are creative, encouraging and fun. Hands-On Language is in its fourth year as an after-school Spanish program at Atkinson elementary in Portland, OR with plans to expand to additional schools in the near future.
