MATT Maestro en Casa English Learning Lessons on the US Census Airs March 9 Washington, DC – Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together, a bi-national non-for-profit organization headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, joined forces with MALDEF to inform non-English speakers about the U.S. Census. The MATT Maestro en Casa, a radio transmitted English learning program, which has practical and simple lessons on Finance, Health Care, and the Workplace, has added a new theme on the U.S. Census as a vital way to educate the public on the process and to help dispel any myths or misinformation that may encourage non-participation by the Spanish-speaking community.
The 2010 US Census lessons begin to air March 9 on the Guadalupe Radio Network. To supplement the lessons, MATT will publish workbooks, which are free and distributed by non-profits, faith-based organizations, and MATT.
The MATT Maestro en Casa English learning program launched last fall and airs on Guadalupe Radio Network stations KJON 850 AM Dallas-Ft-Worth, KWMF 1380 AM San Antonio, and KVDG 90.9 FM Midland. Lessons can also be accessed on the organization’s website, www.themattfoundation.org.
