Once or twice a week depending on age of child.
Our teaching objective is to emphasize the essentials: pronunciation, comprehension, reading and writing. To develop these skills, we use games to activate Spanish vocabulary and techniques such as role-playing in order to make the most of our class time. These activities are essential and critical in order for students to develop Spanish language skills.
We target language comprehension rather than memorizing words, and put grammar in action through reading mini books or short stories that prepare the student to begin writing sentences and stories in Spanish.
Homework, tests, and routine exercises in the classroom are important methods to assess long term retention and ability to use the Spanish language on a daily basis.
