The Español Experience
Conversational Spanish for Kids
What makes our instructors so special? Each of them is a native speaker who grew up bilingual!
From an early age, they themselves experienced the joy of being able to communicate in both English and Spanish, and they're passionate about helping parents raise children who can speak two languages too.
At The Español Experience, the emphasis is on conversational skills, which children acquire through dialogue with skilled teachers and guided, relevant conversations with classmates.
Children quickly learn to discuss their own preferences, like “Me gusta dibujar." (“I like to draw.") This empowers them to begin experiencing the excitement of communicating in Spanish right away.
Lessons are supplemented with Spanish games, songs, storytime and watch parties.
Special guests also join us online to bring alive the Spanish-speaking culture and to give children the opportunity to interact with new Spanish-speaking friends.
Fun one-hour classes keep kids interested, motivated and looking forward to the following week. Weekly practice sheets and exercises are provided as resources to keep children mindful of Spanish between classes.
Online classes are offered on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The 12-week Fall/Winter cycle starts the first week in November 2020 and ends in February 2021. Holiday breaks follow the NYC Department of Education schedule.
The Español Experience is available to children in grades K-8. Beginners and all skill levels are welcome. FOr new students, we recommend calling us prior to registration so we can discuss the best class setting for your child.
