The mission of the Qué Tal Language Program is to provide Spanish language classes and programs for students in the western suburban area of Minneapolis, Minnesota which prepare students for the future by providing extensive exposure to the Spanish language.
Qué Tal is a high quality language program that provides daily exposure to Spanish for children K through Middle School serving the Wayzata School District. Research shows that the optimum age for beginning language instruction is between the ages of 4-8 and that learning a foreign language at an early age enhances cognitive and communicative ability in children.
Qué Tal focuses on effective communication and may provide the foundation for your child to advance in language studies. We use the Spanish curriculum Viva el Espa?ol from McGraw-Hill Company for grades K-4. Grades 5-8 use the Realidades curriculum from the Pearson Company. (See “Curriculum” tab for further information.) We use culture, music, games, and history with the daily reinforcement of activities and practice to keep students involved and learning. With the world now a global community, Qué Tal offers a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to prepare to be global citizens.
Qué Tal Language Program is a 501c3 non-profit organization guided by a volunteer Board of Directors that may include current and past parents, program staff, local school teachers or staff, and individuals from the larger community.
Qué Tal relies upon the involvement of parent volunteers at various levels in order to maintain a well run yet cost effective program.
Parents are encouraged to talk with the coordinators about ways in which they can volunteer to help enhance the learning experience of their students.
