It was 2001 when then-Solano Community College student Monica Samo spent one day a week planting the seed of learning a second language by teaching French to children in elementary school.
“It was an amazing experience. Now, I get to see my child experience this,” Samo said of now watching her own elementary school-age son Dominic Samo learn French from another Solano College student.
Samo said she has brought some of her teaching materials out of the closet and plans to continue to expand her son’s command of French.
“This is a perfect age,” Samo said. “They are such enthusiastic learners.”
