Camp helps Arkansas students practice bilingual skills
from Northwest Arkansas Times
Thirty-two students in the Springdale School District of Arkansas are attending the Sin Limites camp at J.O. Kelly Middle School, said Cassandra Satterfield, a camp volunteer. "Sin Limites" is Spanish for "No Limits." It's important for native Spanish speakers to practice their language because learning grammar and sentence structure in one language creates an easy transition for learning more languages, said Santiago Wood, executive director of the National Association for Bilingual Education. Students who grow up fluent in more than one language will have more job opportunities than their peers who speak only one language, and they will generally earn larger salaries.
