Will my child really learn Spanish?
Yes! We teach Spanish the same way you taught your child to speak English – normal daily activities, narration and discussion, and lots of repetition. We never say to a child, “You are here to learn Spanish.” Instead we say (in Spanish), “Let’s have fun! Let’s read this book. What does the doggy say? Let’s sing a song – here’s how it goes. Jump up and clap your hands! Touch your head in this part, now touch your knees. Time to clean up. Time for snack. Let’s pray.” And so forth. Just like you do in English at home.
As with your child in her first couple of years of English absorption, 2K kids are learning to understand the language spoken to them, and building the foundation to speak. Over time, they begin to speak it naturally, but it doesn’t all happen at once, of course.
