The first experience is vital for a child's willingness to learn a second language at any later age. At PrekSpanish, we strive to provide such an experience.
We play...a lot.
We design the class according to different goals: creativity, motor skills, and sensorial activities.
For example “I move” is a section where kids and parents play using movement.
We create a tunnel with chairs and the kids go under and pick up a toy.
Using the language in a holistic way (instead of tidy compartments) helps create the right atmosphere: Spanish is a language to be spoken.
We build upon the previous class pattern, now incorporating ways to motivate kids to explore the language.
For example “Free play”. The classroom has different stations so that kids choose where to play.
Each station has a theme: dress up, playing with dough, construction, and art.
With the teacher's help, kids perform the activity while using the Spanish terms learned at the beginning of the class.
In this level, we use very well-known stories that the teacher acts out along with the kids.
The goal is to play in a more structured way, building up on the acquired oral skills.
Stories are of the type of “The Little Red Hen” but always with some odd turn to make them more fun.
For example, the Bull (el toro), Hen’s friend, can’t help her because he has to go to the gym: He is very strong (muy fuerte).
After the acting, playful follow-up activities are designed to practice the vocabulary and phrases learned in the story.
A method guaranteed to make your child able to communicate in Spanish, and have lots of fun in the process!
Scientifically proven, taught by professionals with long experience in the field.
