  1. Quiero poner en su conocimiento un efectivo método de aprender el idioma Español como segunda lengua, creado por la profesora Bertha L. Albornoz, quién se desempeño como profesora del Español en la ciudad de Baltimore por espacio de treinta años, diseñado especialmente para anglos y afro-americanos.
    Se trata de promover el bilingüismo en el sur de la Florida, para que el método sea adoptado por el sistema escolar publico, y los profesionales del futuro.

    Did you know?

    The Hispanic population of the United States as of July 1, 2012 was 53 million, making people of Hispanic origin the nation’s largest ethnic or racial minority. Hispanics constituted 17 percent of the nation’s total population.

    The projected Hispanic population of the United States in 2060 is 128.8 million. According to this projection, the Hispanic population will constitute 31 percent of the nation’s population by that date.

    They need to be well prepared and we need to do something about it. I’m looking forward to this summit.
