We want kids to love Spanish
During our class, we focus on vocabulary acquisition and practical conversation to build and promote speaking confidence. Our children learn by talking. We focus on learning vocabulary and mastering practical conversation. Students progress through introduction, reinforcement, and proficiency through a hands on, fully immersive approach, until they can fluently demonstrate their new knowledge.
We aim to build real-world Spanish skills that will give our students the confidence to speak and the enthusiasm to engage in the Hispanic culture. We follow a thorough Spanish program with interesting topics. Each topic has its own songs, flashcards, story books and other fun related materials inside our popular La caja Roja!)
We want our children to become knowledgeable with the world that surrounds them. Your child will embark on an exciting adventure and travel around the world, learning about iconic landmarks, new cultures, local cuisine, fascinating people and native wildlife! We involved the children into art projects to work out creativity, and respond to instructions. Having our students fully engaged is a key point in our program.
This is how we do it!
SPEAK SPEAK SPEAK
We want our children to speak, and with the correct pronunciation. During the first 20 minutes of the class we focus on vocabulary and essential language modulation. We encourage reading skills and writing, through fun visual associations, topic related flashcards, and cognate words. The children love to see how many words in Spanish they already know! As they progress, we build phrases and perform play-acting and role games.
SING & PLAY
We introduce all-new vocabulary with an original song to accelerate learning and make it fun. During our second module, they sing and play age- appropriate challenging games, such as flyswatter, la bomba, donde esta el raton? and also express what they have learnt, through role play, and acting.
THINK THINK THINK
We want our children to get creative and we want them to become knowledgeable with the everyday things. Each project or activity is related to the country of study but also to the topic from our program. Each project reinforces the vocabulary learnt in a fully immersive Spanish environment where they respond to commands and exclamations. We built a Victorian style house, while learning "housing + England". We planted tomato and cilantro while learning "food + Mexico" and we decorated a colorful bird while learning "colors, animals + Brazil". We do scavenger hunts, science experiments, sorting recipes and baking, among other exciting projects turning your child's mind into a creative mode to conquer the challenges!
READ & WRITE
Each class has its writing section. The workbook its an additional opportunity to practice the vocabulary and skills learnt through songs, games, and activities. The student's book is the heart of the curriculum and covers all 14 vocabulary themes over 8 chapters, as well as many important grammar concepts, tips and tricks to help them learn Spanish. (They will eventually progress towards verb conjugation and building picture sentences in the past, present, and future).
