With its home base in Bogotá, Colombia, the staff at United Languages and Media Group has made its way to Miami. Its international presence reinforces its mission of helping students advance their careers and enrich their lives by undertaking the study of a new language. To facilitate this process, they offer Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and English classes both online and in their classrooms.
Although many language schools use the technique of total immersion by having teachers speak exclusively to students in the target tongue, that immersion often disintegrates outside of the classroom. But not at Ceves Spanish School. The educational hub is located in the middle of Miami, a city known for its Latin American cultural heritage. Following any Spanish-language class, students can practice their listening and speaking skills throughout the community at its endless restaurants, nightclubs, and beaches.
Kydoo Kids Club & Cafe emphasizes the doo in their name, setting children loose into a world where they can do all of the activities they love. Inside the color-splashed facility, dedicated play areas house a variety of fun, multi-sensory experiences. In the central play area, explorers jump, climb, and slide through play structures, and in the invention station, young Thomas Edisons use Legos and blocks to build towers or a new Mars Rover. Sometimes, these areas host classes, too, such as in art, singing, science, cooking, and dance. Parents can join the fun, or kick back in the cafe with fresh-brewed cups of coffee and gourmet bites.
Led by well-traveled shutterbug Marguerite Beaty, Crea8fotos' staff instructs owners of DSLR cameras how to professionally operate their equipment. During Introduction to Digital Photography I, Marguerite reveals how camera settings can manipulate light quality and image sharpness and trains students to control focus, particularly in the event of a photo bomb by sasquatch. After studying the camera's various knobs and switches, students compose and frame shots to produce their own eye-catching photos.
