Camille is Functionally Fluent in Spanish!

May 22, 2007 Camille earns her functional fluency diploma from the ILP Duolingual Education Spanish Program at the McKee Language School. She attended the most darling spanish preschool this year. Each day was broken down into 6 different subjects of play in Spanish~ such as cooking, exercise, acting out plays, singing, etc. The teachers only spoke spanish to the kids and the kids earned tokens for all the spanish words they used to "buy" toys at the end of the day. Camille's teacher said she is the best spanish speaker at the school that doesn't come from a spanish speaking home. We are so proud of her achievement and awe at her love for the language at such a young age. The program was developed by a BYU professor and his daughter runs the preschool. Although the preschool is for profit, BYU has study abroad non-profit programs all over the world, using this McKee method to teach kids in other countries english. If you want you can read more about the nonprofit work at It's quite interesting.
