In this free Spanish for Educators lesson we are talking about Spanish for Parent – Teacher Conferences: Reuniones de padres y maestros.

The objective of this Spanish lesson is for educators to learn the appropriate vocabulary to answer the most common questions you get from parents and guardians. In this case, these questions are related to giving support to kids at home.
