Spanish for Kids
We believe teaching Spanish for kids at an early age through immersion in engaging activities helps them attain their full potential, enhancing their skills in other educational areas in the process. Scientific testing has indicated that students with exposure to a second language score significantly higher in reading, math, language, creative thinking and problem-solving.
At a young age, a second language comes to a child as easily as the first language. Children’s minds are at a cognitive stage that permits thought process in a second language; due to a natural brain change around puberty, older children and adults are required to learn a second language by translation. Children ten and under can tap into these developing neural pathways to curtail the process of language learning making learning effortless. Continuous exposure to a Spanish-only environment engages kids at many different learning levels.
Spanish classes for young children develop their reasoning skills, problem-solving abilities and expand their mental boundaries. Exposing children during their preschool years offers them the greatest opportunity to learn quickly and speak fluently. In turn, exposure at this young age will equip them with the skills to perform better in other school subjects.
Why immersion works. When children are exposed to a language through many different activities such as arts and crafts, music and movement, drama, story-telling, interactive games and snack time activities, they listen, experience, engage and interact all in Spanish. There is no translation; the learning and instinct to respond in Spanish become second nature.
