This course is designed for babies and toddlers aged 0-3, it is intended to be nonstop fun and interactivity for 30 minutes, completely in the target language, Spanish. The classes are taught in such a way that comprehension is simple, even for the accompanying adult! Vocabulary lists and support information are also given so that reinforcement can be done at home, if you wish. A piece of homework is given after each class so that the learning experience may continue at home.
Babies and toddlers are accompanied by one participating adult – mums, dads, grandparents – and are encouraged to participate in games, songs, rhymes with assistance from their grown-up. During which, the teacher maintains concentration and interest using visual tools, catchy rhymes, puppets and Spanish songs. Our accompanying adult may well be a Spanish speaker, a complete beginner, be able to remember some school Spanish, everyone is welcome, you’ll soon find that you’ve learned the songs and vocabulary just as quickly as the little ones!
We are often asked whether under age 3 is too young to begin learning a foreign language, the answer is always the same, the earlier the better! It’s quite an honour and a privilege to be able to see such little ones understanding the teacher, showing comprehension through gestures, mouthing words in Spanish and even speaking words in Spanish when they are ready.
