"She told me she would like to go to Spanish every day!"
full immersion with native speakers
Children learn a second language the same way they learned their mother tongue – by being fully immersed in it. Through music, art, stories, games and play, the children in our program enjoy normal preschool activities in a small group with two teachers who are native speakers. The hearts and minds of these children open to a world of new adventures where the new language is the key.
preschool & school-aged programs
For children aged 2 to 4, we offer morning preschool classes of 3 hours duration, two times per week, in Spanish. This program is offered in conjunction with the MPPC Learning Center’s excellent regular preschool and kindergarten. For children aged 5 and early 6, the kindergarten schedule is fuller so we offer a shorter, afternoon class on Fridays.
For the children of bilingual parents who are passing on their mother tongue, we offer after-school programs in German, grouped by age and fluency.
For elementary schools, we offer school-day programs in Spanish, German, or French. These may be one-hour exposure classes for the entire school year (all students), or after-school sessions as part of an enrichment program.
adult instruction, too
We offer instruction and conversation for individuals or pairs of adults, in corporate or private settings. Some of our students are foreign nationals who have relocated to the area and wish to improve fluency and breadth of English vocabulary. Others are Americans pre-paring to go abroad that wish to develop their language skills and knowledge of the target culture (German, French, Spanish.) Enquire about a solution tailored to you.
