Welcome Amigos -- Academics

After School & Saturday Classes for Children Ages 3.5 - 12

Welcome Amigos after school Spanish classes offer your child a fun and interactive way to learn Spanish in a relaxed, inviting setting. Children ages 3 1/2 - 12 are placed in classes according to their age and abilities. We incorporate themes of inquiry, investigation, and children’s interests with the teacher’s guidance while establishing a natural flow of conversation and use of language. In addition, the classes emphasize age-appropriate grammar according to the student’s age and skill level, and language proficiency.

Children have the opportunity to experiment with real-life scenarios. We use various tools to generate dialogs with our students. And of course, all conversation and instruction is in Spanish. Overall, we want to offer children the opportunity enjoy learning the Spanish language while experiencing multiple skills to enhance their learning, confidence, self-esteem, imagination, cognitive development, and academic abilities.

We apply the K-W-L thinking strategy:

K = What we Know?
W = What do we Want to learn or What we Wonder?
L = What have we Learned?
