Celebrate Languages
"...and some said it could not be done! But I believed and they succeeded: ...they spoke, ...they sang, ...used technology,
...manipulated it, created and communicated with it, their language class!"  
      R. de Meij - November 2008
Here is a collage of just a few of the 100s of
successful past students of mine (
over the last 10
) singing in Spanish, French and Papiamento
(spoken in Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao).

Recent Brain Research has revealed
that music and language are processed in the same area
of the brain.
