Hola Spanish for Kids
Hola Spanish for kids is a program in Cape Cod designed to teach Spanish to Children from 0 to 10 years, in a fun and exciting environment. Each class focuses on giving your child fun language immersion experiences. Through music, stories, games and dance your child will learn the language very naturally, from a native Spanish speaker. Small class size allows for individual attention, and the fun and relaxed class setting is designed to keep children interested while stimulating their learning process.
A fun experience in a new language!
Our classes are full of energy and a lot of games, songs, and time for children to make music with traditional instruments from Latin America – creating a natural environment for children to learn Spanish while having fun together. It basically works as mini-foreign language immersion linked to the things children love to do.
We use the natural approach to expose the children to Spanish. That means that children listen and speak the language while playing, singing, dancing, enjoying puppet shows and having fun time.
Movement and joy.
Our program makes use of movement activities to connect language to actions, helping the muscles and brain reinforce each other’s memory retention. This method is called TPR (Total Physical Response) and is used by many foreign language teachers around the world.
