A playgroup for Hispanic families

Filed under: Just For Moms

There's a growing population of parents joining playgroups, though what they are joining for is a bit different. While many parents join to help their children learn to interact with other kids, women in one Virginia playgroup are there to learn English.

Many communities are starting to offer playgroups for Hispanic families, who have often moved to the area and are unused to the local customs and language. In fact, the women in the article mentioned did not know English, speaking to the reporter through a translator.

I've heard of several playgroups for people that speak other languages. I'm pretty sure a prerequisite would be that I actually spoke that other language, though.

Do you know of any bilingual playgroups? Have you ever visited one? If so, did your children pick up any words from another language?
