Description of Classes

Preschool Fun: (Ages 3-4)  Our class begins with salutations, followed by a vocabulary picture session.  These pictures are then used in a short story, which is read in Spanish. Each time a new vocabulary word is used in the story, the children are asked to say it out loud.  The vocabulary pictures are reviewed after the story.  The children then stand to do an active song in Spanish. The class ends with the Spanish way to say, “Have a good day” and “Good bye”.  Classes are roughly 20 minutes long.

Seven classes (either Mondays OR Wednesdays)         $55
Fourteen classes (both Mondays AND Wednesdays)    $100

The Basics/ Learn to Read in Spanish: Students see pictures and hear basic vocabulary, phrases, colors, and numbers.  They are asked to repeat each Spanish word or phrase several times.  Some of the vocabulary words are then put into sentences. Students (ages 7+) are asked to write down words. This engages the manual-visual pathway, a proven method for good memory recall.  “The Basics” sessions are geared for three age groups:  “The Basics Youth” for ages 5-6; “The Basics I” for ages 7-8; and “The Basics II” for ages 9+.

Seven 30-min classes, $77

The “Learn to Read in Spanish” portion of this class (included for ages 7+) offers a giant opportunity for students---one that will be greatly appreciated in the future when a situation arises to communicate in Spanish.  Students receive lessons on Spanish word stress and basic pronunciation.  The "Learn to Read" portion within "The Basics" is structured for two age groups, 7–8 and 9+.

For the necessary supplies for ages 7+, please see the “Classroom Setting” section.

Please note: If a student is not yet proficient in English reading, "The Basics Youth" class on Mondays would be the best fit.

Language Structure Interactive (LSI)
: (Ages 7+) This class teaches the grammatical workings of the language and requires weekly practice sentences---PRACTICE: the key to learning!
