Spanish tutoring for small groups of children
This winter we will be offering Spanish tutoring for small groups of children, two to four students maximum per class. Classes will be 30 minutes long. The purpose of this format is to work one-on-one with each student and offer a more personalized experience. This structure will allow students to advance according to their individual language proficiency. Students who already know some vocabulary will be able to learn more and progress in their language acquisition.
Although second language acquisition takes time, children have the capacity to learn in an organic way, without too much structure. Students will learn Spanish through play and interaction with a native Spanish speaker (or someone who is proficient in the language). We will also include sensory activities and art which will provide a nurturing and engaging environment.
Our methodology is based on three steps
Repetition and association
The teacher will verbalize new vocabulary, based on a particular theme. This vocabulary will be reinforced with pictures, read-aloud, props and games.
Through play and interaction with the teacher, students will learn to recognize and identify objects using the new vocabulary. This helps the process of internalization and memorization.
Through games, props, puppets, music and pictures children will remember the new vocabulary. They will be encouraged to practice new vocabulary and build sentences in Spanish to facilitate learning in a playful and natural way.
Every concept or theme will be taught using these three steps, enabling students to acquire Spanish progressively and naturally. Our classes are designed according to children’s needs. We want to offer the best quality tutoring with the goal that children will enjoy learning a new language, and with their curiosity awakened, will continue to pursue Spanish as they grow.
