Welcome to ‘EN NUESTRA LENGUA’ ©

Dates for Fall 2015



Since 2010 ‘En Nuestra Lengua’ aims at developing academic skills in Spanish for bilingual children. During the school year, we offer Saturday morning classes for children in grades K-3 at Bach School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The program is staffed by Spanish teachers trained for teaching students who are native speakers of Spanish.

In this website you will find details about the program, resources for families, information about the class sessions, and a selection of our academic research papers.
