Spanish Curriculum

Our Spanish curriculum is designed to introduce foreign language to young students, using techniques that are fun and engaging. Young children, love to repeat what they hear. They love to sing, make believe, listen to stories, move, touch and feel.

We have used these techniques in our Spanish curriculum. When children learn native languages, they do so through repetition and deciphering meaning through context. They don't need word-for-word translations. They are comfortable getting the general idea without knowing each word, which is an invaluable attribute in speaking a foreign language.

Follow our program, and your students will learn Spanish quickly.
