Starkville Aldersgate offers conversational Spanish lessons


Those planning on going on a mission trip to a Spanish-speaking nation might want to sign up for a language course being offered by Starkville Aldersgate United Methodist Church.

Aldersgate UMC is offering a second language, conversational Spanish classes Thursday evenings in April. The class meets from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. through the first Thursday in May.

This interactive course introduces and facilitates basic Spanish usage. Students will practice the language within different contexts:

• Meeting-inviting people
• Asking for and giving basic information about wants, needs, likes and about what one has to do.

The vocabulary usage will include transportation-traveling, money, shopping, construction and basic emergency and medical information.

The leader is the Rev. Maggie Little. Little has more than 30 years of experience teaching Spanish in the Atlanta area and recently returned to Starkville after serving as the coordinator of the Hispanic Outreach Ministries at Norcross (Ga.) First UMC.

The $15 registration fee covers all course materials. Aldersgate UMC is located at 820 Evergreen St. in Starkville. To register call 662-323-4657 or e-mail
