Spanish School Program

Enroll any time during the year!

This 2-hour extended program is specifically designed for multi-day attendance, although it can be attended as little as once per week! The Spanish School program offers students an environment that allows them to absorb more and progress more rapidly with their language skills while having fun.

Like all of our programs, this is a non-intimidating, yet challenging and enjoyable “Spanish-only” setting that follows the proven SiW immersion curriculum model.

Enrollment for this program is on a ‘full school year’ basis, September through June. Students may join in at any time during the semester and continue for the remainder of the school year.

  • Class age groups vary by location, for children 3½ to 10 years old.
  • Children attend class alone (separation class).
  • Classes run 2 hours and can be attended from 1 to 5 days per week.
  • Enrollment is for the full school year (or the remainder of the school year if enrolling after September).

Super Chicos Spanish Program

Enrollment Period: Full school year (September-June)
Ages: 8½–11 years
Proficiency Level: Intermediate/Advanced
Duration: 1-2 hours
Enroll any time during the year!

This is a more advanced program for older students who have a full immersion foundation. This program is not open to first-time students because there is a level of brain/neural development that takes place in full immersion environments that must already be developed by this age since it is not possible to develop it passed this age. At this stage the students are much less child-like and are capable of more structured learning. Activities in these classes are still entertaining and engaging, but a bit more challenging and structured. Students are introduced to more formal language skills such as reading, writing and grammar.

  • Open to children from 8½ to 11 years old who started in one of our younger programs or who have other previous Spanish immersion exposure.
  • Students attend class alone (separation class).
  • Classes run 1 or 2 hours, once per week.
  • Enrollment is for the full school year.
