Happy New Year -2014 Events within the Hispanic Community Los Angeles

Dear Students,
I wanted to wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous 2014 ! 


La Escuela Español is celebrating its 7th year on the planet. I am very happy to anounce some very exciting and happy changes and progress.  That said, in the spirit of celebration, I'd like to invite  you out to some wonderful celebrations that will be happening in Los Angeles. There will be festivals, music concerts, Flamenco dance events, Aztec Dancers and  that will give you an opportunity to not only use your Spanish, but to enrich your life with the beautiful and colorful Latin culture.


I will also be continuing my Spanish Classes for the community. They are held on Tuesday afternoons in Santa Monica. Classes are ongoing, each class we discuss practical matters in daily life: Introductions, Directions, Ordering at a restaurant, Reserving Accommodations and even Asking someone to dance. Your first class is free with this email, please RSVP.


I also just published some articles in my blog, Learning Spanish is Fun ! that will help you learn more about Latin Culture, Music and of course the Spanish language. If you have not subscribed yet, please do so by entering your email in the subscription box on my blog page.
