Spanish for kids

Spanish is the official language of 20 countries; it is the second most spoken language all over the world. It also is the unofficial language of football. When the world football fans descend upon Qatar in 2022 you may want to have your child ready to be part of the fiesta. There’s no easier way than starting early.

Our Spanish language classes for children are full of fun. Children learn to understand and express themselves in Spanish, taking an exciting journey into the Spanish language and culture. They learn and practice Spanish through well-structured lessons and diverse activities such as songs, games, crafts, music, drama and art. All activities, vocabulary and dialogues are age-specific. Children learn basic conversation, introductions, spatial orientation, directions, likes and dislikes, etc.

Our courses are taught by highly qualified native speaker-teachers from Spain and Latin America that hold advanced degrees in Spanish (Masters or Ph.D.) with broad experience in child education. The Spanish curriculum follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and is developed for each age group according to the specificity of cognitive development for that age.
