Spanish Classes for Kids

Maximize the cognitive benefits that learning a language offers by in enrolling your child in Spanish Immersion Classes at an early age.

Native Spanish speaking instructors teach and enhance kids' Spanish language skills in a nurturing environment. Kids language learning is supported through play, music and teacher guided activities. At an early age, kids learn to speak Spanish quickly while having fun.

Why should My Kid learn Spanish?

Kids who have grown up speaking both Spanish and English often have linguistic, cognitive, and cultural advantages over monolingual speakers of either language, and they may be better prepared to face the challenges of a multilingual and multicultural World.

"Studies show that exposure to a foreign language between the ages of 3 and 15 actually increases children's ability to learn in all other areas", according to Dr. Susan Curtiss, Professor of Linguistics at UCLA.

Is Learning Spanish Younger Really Better?

Learning a languange at any age is beneficial. Some studies have shown that the human brain is more open to linguistic development during the years between birth and pre-adolescence, and that children who learn a language before the onset of adolescence are more likely to develop native-like pronunciation (e.g., Strozer, 1994.) When children have and early start to a long sequence of languge instruction that continues through high school and college, they will be able to achieve levels of fluency that have not been possible in the past due to the late start of most language programs.

Benefits of learning a Second Language:

  • Improves a child's understanding of his or her native language.
  • Gives the child a head start in language requirements for college.
  • Students of foreing language tend to score higher on standarized tests.
  • Students of foreing languages may have better career opportunities.

Why Learn Spanish?

  • Spanish is the second most spoken language in the U.S.
  • Spanish is the world's third most spoken language, after Mandarin Chinese and English, and ranks second in terms of native speakers.
  • Spanish is the second most used language in international communication, and an official language of the UN and its organizations.
  • Because being bilingual gives you more competitive force in society & a globalized world, and brings more/better opportunies.
  • To enjoy traveling thoughout many Spanish speaking countries (Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, etc.)
  • To improve cultural understanding.
  • To make new friends who don't speak English.
  • To develop creativity and better critical thinking skills.
  • Because Spanish will bring new experiences, sensations and maybe even additional happiness.
  • Because Spanish is fun! It's a chance to experience new music, food, movies & much more.
  • Because SPANISH will expand your kids' HORIZONS!
