Spanish Immersion Classes (ages 4-5, 6-8)

  • Each class is 2 hrs. and meets 2 days per week for 4 weeks

  • $169 for 4 weeks

  • Max. 10 students per class

Class Description

Our Spanish Immersion classes are designed for students just starting to learn the concepts of print, for early readers, and for those students wanting more exposure to Spanish.  These classes offer students a full immersion, small-group classroom setting that is a fun, play-based, and multi-sensory environment.  Our two hour classes incorporate and focus on all academic disciplines: conversational Spanish/speaking, listening/comprehension, and reading and writing.   

 

​Classes are taught using a thematic approach, and are designed to include a rich set of developmentally appropriate activities for learning Spanish such as read-alouds, music/songs, poems, hands-on games, play, movement, crafts, visual aids, and more.  Many of our activities are project-based and incorporate a wide variety of activities and academic skills.  Our classes and the material we teach are also differentiated according to students’ age and level of proficiency, and our goal is to incorporate numerous classroom activities to reach all different learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic).

 

Our instructors introduce new concepts and teach Spanish by relying and building on your child’s current knowledge and by teaching concepts that they’re already familiar with in their native language, by comparing and contrasting vocabulary, and by applying higher order of thinking skills during whole group circle time, small group centers, and independent practice.  Students apply their new knowledge and what they’ve learned by interacting with developmentally appropriate materials, manipulatives, toys, crafts, and learning games. 

 

Our classes always end with a whole group closing that consists of dance, movement, music, or games.  Rather than just being able to say a few words in Spanish, our goal is for each child to have fun, develop a deep understanding of the language, and leave class with a desire to learn!

Knowledge of Spanish is not required.

Beginning Conversational Spanish (ages 3-4, 5-7, 8-12)

  • Each class is 1 hr. OR 1.5 hrs. and meets 1 day per week for 4 weeks

  • $75 for 4 weeks (1 hr. classes), or $99 for 4 weeks (1.5 hr. classes)

  • Max. 10 students per class

Class Description

Our beginning conversational classes offer your child an atmosphere that immerses them into the Spanish language in a fun, playful, and multi-sensory environment.   These classes offer students a full immersion, small-group classroom setting with an emphasis on conversational Spanish, although they will also involve some reading, writing, and other activities.

 

​During whole group time, our teachers make connections and activate your child’s prior content knowledge through the "Question of the Day," think-pair-shares, k-w-l charts, and brainstorming webs, and more.  New vocabulary and phrases are introduced via visuals, sketches, gestures, vocabulary cards, multimedia and/or real-life artifacts.  During small group center time, students focus on age appropriate stories, songs, poems, games, and/or crafts.  Children are encouraged to apply the language and develop oral fluency through interactive activities such as cooperative games, presentations in Spanish, role plays, and much more! 

 

Our beginning conversational classes are intended for students with little or no knowledge of Spanish.

  • $75 for 4 weeks (1 hr. classes), or $99 for 4 weeks (1.5 hr. classes)

  • Max 10 students per class

Class Description

Our intermediate/advanced conversational classes offer your child a more challenging atmosphere that fosters growth and dives deeper into the Spanish language in a fun, playful, and multi-sensory environment. 

 

Our teachers use whole group time to make connections and activate your child’s prior knowledge of the content through the "Question of the Day," think-pair-shares, k-w-l charts, and brainstorming webs.  Current and new vocabulary and phrases are consistently reinforced via visuals, read-alouds, vocabulary cards, writing journals, and multimedia.  During small group center time we encourage your child to apply the language and develop oral fluency through interactive activities such as cooperative games, presentations in Spanish, role plays, and much more!

The minimum requirements for the Intermediate/Advanced Conversational class are:

  • Basic verbal comprehension (understands classroom direction from a teacher and when peers speak in Spanish).

  • Some verbal communication (able to carry a basic conversation in Spanish with peers and/or a teacher).

  • Students are not expected to read or write in Spanish.
