Staunton Senior Center: Spanish students from Grace Christian visited SSC

Spanish 3 students from Grace Christian High School visited the Center for the first time to lend a hand in teaching some basics of the language to interested members.

Both generations enjoyed each others company as always happens at SSC when young people arrive, as they struck up relationships in the midst of the teaching and learning of some conversational Spanish. One member actually got five-on-one attention as no one else joined her group that day.

The students were amazed at how much she remembered of the language as she was interested in taking the class as a refresher. The hope is that the students will be returning on a regular basis with a variety of activities that will hold the interest of all involved. The members seemed excited about the prospect of the students visiting monthly.
