Learn by Watching Television
A collaborative language literacy, #In2Languages #En2idiomas, partners the missions of Spanish Community of Wallingford with WPAA-TV to promote ‘learning by viewing’ identical content in both English and Spanish. #In2Languages #En2Idiomas news magazine style stories about the world, technology, health, and arts are produced by Deutsche Welle. Promotion assistance is provided by the Spanish Community of Wallingford (SCOW), Wallingford Adult Education and Literacy Volunteers and Language teachers. Spanish Language students are encouraged to watch in the summer or Saturdays to help retain language skills. English language learners are encouraged to watch on their lunch break. It is also a means of learning Spanish.
ABOUT | Since Oct 2012
This language literacy initiative began in Oct 2012 with a two world news programs. Now four news programs scheduled in tandem, weekdays midday is our Language Literacy Program: #In2Languages #En2Idiomas.
From 2012-14 content was scheduled to play concurrent when it was highly likely that community members might watch on the TV in SCOW’s lobby/wait area.
Now a decade old, #In2Languages| #en2idiomas remains available as community TV thanks to the generosity community donors. Special thanks to Michael and Zorayda Cocchi whose annual donation to WPAA-TV seeds the community donations. $900 is needed to cover the spanish content cost. The English versions of the same stories remain available via a generous content grant from Deutsche Welle. Over the years wpaatv secured grants to cover the costs of all content but now the initiatives existence is reliant on community support. Friends of SCOW and WPAA-TV donate to WPAA-TV via the community-wide GreatGive Fundraiser in May. May is when the DW contract renews.
