Spanish Classes!

     


  ***ESPAƑOL EN 2014*** *


Acquire Spanish the way you acquired your native language—by interacting! 
We acquire language when we understand messages. 
Experience a fun, joyful, stress-free way to learn and communicate! 

 * The class will be conducted in Spanish that you will understand from the start. It will be facilitated with a practice called “Teaching with Comprehensible Input (TCI) “ alternatively known as “Optimized Immersion.”

 *No forced speech! All you have to do is listen, respond, and when you are ready, Spanish will begin to “fall out of your mouth” without any thinking or translating! 

*No drills, no memorizing, no grammar charts! *No previous experience necessary  

 *** 4-WEEK SESSION BEGINS JANUARY 2 ***

 *** COST: $75 per 4-week session; early bird rate $65 ***

 REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Early bird $65 by December 13 

                                                         Regular rate $75 by December 27

WHEN? 
 Thursdays from 6-8 at Gordon-Nash Library; Jan. 2, 9, 16, 23

 For more information contact Jen Schongalla at  jenschongalla@hotmail.com 

About me: 
I grew up speaking Spanish at home with my Cuban Dad and grandmother. 
I struggled teaching with a textbook for 20 years because that is not how I interacted with my family! 
Then I found TCI (Teaching with Comprehensible Input) and have never looked back. 
It is truly the next best thing to being born into a bilingual family! I love to guide people into their own power in acquiring language. 
It’s exhilarating when you understand and respond in another language without thinking or translating—because you just “get it!” 


 “Language is a spontaneous, joyous thing to be shared to make life with others happier that day.” --Ben Slavic

If you are looking for an amazing present for that special someone—this is the place to find it. His work is very reasonably priced and will benefit the library, and Barry!

In October at the Nash Gallery

Nature Under Our Noses:  Life In and Around Our Warm Water Ponds
Photography by Barry Draper
Gordon-Nash Library Exhibit:  October 2013

As part of his on-going program, “Nature Under Our Noses”, Barry Draper of New Hampton takes us into the habitat of local warm water ponds in his latest photography exhibit at the Gordon-Nash Library, Main Street in New Hampton, NH.  The exhibit runs throughout the month of October.  The opening reception is planned for Thursday, October 10, 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Barry has been a science teacher, photographer and environmentalist for the past 40 years.  His life work reflects a deep respect for the earth and its many creatures and wild places.  He combines teaching and photography in the classroom, on the nature trail, and throughout his travels.

Since retiring from the Sant Bani School, Barry has turned to community activities.  He works with the Audubon Christmas Bird Count, the Pemigewasset River Local Advisory Council, and the Conservation Commission in New Hampton.  During the summer, he leads groups on walks at Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough.  He shares his expertise with school groups and organizations, such as the Circle Camp in Groton and the National Writing Project writing camps and teacher workshops in Plymouth and Laconia.

He has shared his nature photography and talks since the 1980’s.  In March 2011, he held a solo exhibition of Nature Under Our Noses at the Universidad Autonoma de Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.  Barry has offered programs on wildlife, habitats, and local ecology to schools in New England, Scotland and England, the Jakarta International School in Indonesia, Taiwan, the Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica.

His latest show at the Gordon-Nash Library brings out the visual beauty and complexities of our local warm water ponds.  Barry’s photographs of loons, herons, turtles, insects, raptors and amphibians represent the diversity and changes over time of these community assets.

Gordon-Nash Library News


Goodness, it is mid-September already—with a hint of frost in the air.

 It is so pleasing to see more people coming to Donna Sullivan’s great Yoga class. There is still room to join and it is so good for you to relax this way. There is a class every Thursday from 10:30 and they only cost $13.00 or $50.00 for five.

 Zentangle is back with Bette Abdu. Bette is offering classes every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 to 7:30. You do not need to be an artist to learn how to draw a Zentangle. You will learn how to create beautiful images using structured patterns with pen on paper. Learn the basic technique in one workshop and enjoy the calming benefits every time you create one of these 31/2 square artistic gems. Find that zone of relaxed focus with a totally portable art form. You do not have to be an artist, in fact non-artist are encouraged to start this practice. The workshop costs $35.00 with a $10.00 material fee.

 Children’s Story Time is growing! We have two story times now, both on Thursday. The first session is from 10:45 to 11:45 and the second from 12:45 to 1:45. Come here Christine read stories and then create a small masterpiece craft item.

 If you have a craft or skill that you would like to teach at the Gordon-Nash Library please contact us. We have space available and welcome the community to come and share their knowledge with others.

 New books for September: “After Her” by Joyce Maynard, &Sons by David Gilbert, “The Archeology of Knowledge” by Michel Foucault, “Bat” by Jo Nesbo, “The Girl You Left Behind” by Jojo Moyes to name just a few!
Check out our online catalog to find them all! Remember you can reserve online now.
You can also access our Overdrive collection through our website now!
 Did you really love a book you have recently read in our collection? We would love to have our patrons reviewing the books they have read. Let us know if you need help finding where to let us know what you think of a particular book.
 If you are cleaning out your house for winter and come across any DVD’s that you would like to donate we would be very grateful if you brought them to us.

Still time to see Cynthia Robinson's show in the Nash Gallery!
