The Beth and Jim Conversations – 1
(Jim) Hey Beth! How are you?
(Beth) Hola Jim ~ bien, bien. It’s summer here in Florida, so it’s really heating up! ¡Hace mucho calor!
(Jim) I’m excited about our new venture, The Beth and Jim Conversations!
(Beth) ¡Yo tambien! I am too Jim – we have such a great synergy between what we both offer young children in the way of learning Spanish.
(Jim) Perhaps we should begin by introducing ourselves…
I am Jim Porter, co founder of Speekee, a video-based Spanish language program for young children. I currently live in Arcos de la Frontera, a pretty village in Andalucia, Spain. I have two young children, both of whom appear in Speekee with their Mom and I.
(Beth) I am Beth Butler, Founder of the Boca Beth Program. I was born here in the United States and live in Tampa, Florida. I had the great fortune to live in both Chile and Mexico where I learned Spanish as my second language. I am married with three children, all of whom speak Spanish at varying degrees!
(Jim) From my point of view, I see these weekly conversations between you and I as a way of opening up to our customers, sharing what we know about Spanish for young children, and of course learning more about each other. I know there is a lot you are going to teach me Beth, both about Spanish learning and business! And I’m sure there will be some fun surprises along the way (-;
(Beth) It’s been almost ten years now since I started conceptualizing my Boca Beth Program and bilingual product line! It really energizes me to find like-minded people such as you Jim who wish to work together to expand not only our customer base but also the awareness of those in our world about the importance of learning a second language early in life.(Jim) Next week… Let’s talk about how you got started with Boca Beth and how I got started with Speekee, shall we? Looking forward to it!
(Beth) Love that idea – ¡que bueno! Each week we will share some cool, fun facts about our businesses.
Happy Educating! ¡Sea feliz educando!
