Senora Lucht's Classes for 2017-2018

Wellspring Community Classes

In the United States over 38 million people speak Spanish and in the world over 400 million speak Spanish as their primary language in 21 different countries and on 4 continents. It is becoming increasingly important to know the language for many vocations including business, medicine and education. The earlier a student starts with foreign language instruction the more proficient they will become and the easier it will be to learn the language.
