10-week Spanish course for grades K–2

UPCOMING: 10-week Spanish course for grades K–2

Saturdays 10–11am in Kenilworth starting September 22, 2018.


The Classes

  • Fun and engaging, drawing heavily from songs and stories.
  • Students will learn basic conversation and new vocabulary, allowing them to organically pick up the flow of the Spanish language while they are still young.
  • Basic elements of structure will be learned naturally, through listening and practice, providing great preparation for further study later on.
  • A beginning level course, but students should come in knowing numbers 1-10 and basic phrases like “Hola,” “Adiós,” and “¿Cómo estás?”.
  • Small group size (max 8 students) for greater individual attention.
  • Links to class materials (songs, stories) will be emailed to parents, allowing for extra practice at home.
