Some young students in East Lansing are learning how to speak Spanish through a new program at the Bailey Community Center. It is a Spanish Immersion Class for pre-schoolers that just started this week. Teacher Miss Rosa Oyola says she speaks very little English in the class but kids pick up the language faster than adults. She says their brains are like a sponge before they turn 4 years-old. She says they also will be able to pick up the second language easier when they take classes in middle school, high school and college in the future. Julie Anne Jennings says the program costs $350.00 a month. If parents want to enroll their kids in the English speaking portion, it is $600.00 a month.
