Conversational Spanish for Kids 

The Español Experience​

​​When a child is learning a new language, part of the fun is encountering it outside the classroom. New York kids typically hear Spanish spoken in retail stores, restaurants and playgrounds; sometimes at school, sports, and extra-curricular activities; and they’ll occasionally spot signs and hear announcements made in both English and Spanish. 

In fact, children studying Spanish are more tuned in to the second language around them.  These contextual encounters support their learning and give them new motivation to keep improving skills. 

What’s more, from local concerts by international Latino artists, to the annual Fiesta de Flores exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden, opportunities abound  across the city to enhance classroom learning with cultural experiences in Spanish that validate your child’s interest in learning a second language.
