The Growth Mindset

Welcome Amigos After School Spanish classes offer students a fun and interactive way to learn Spanish in a relaxed, inviting setting. Children ages 3 1/2 – 10 are placed in classes according to their age and abilities. We incorporate themes of inquiry, investigation, and children’s interests with the teacher’s guidance while establishing a natural flow of conversation and use of language. In addition, the classes emphasize age-appropriate grammar according to the student’s age and skill level, and language proficiency.

 

Language Development

Ages 3 1/2 – 5

At this stage, youngsters use their senses and motor skills to understand the world around them. We use every opportunity during the day and through our activities to encourage children to use their senses and help them to express their feelings and imagination as they develop language through play and social interaction while having a bonding and close relationship with their teachers and friends.

Ages 6 – 7

During these years children are better able to understand the differences between languages, perception, emotion, and facts. Although they do not necessarily focus on what teachers introduce on a particular day, they retain what they hear. Not only do they see the main theme for the day but they also recall the past and speak spontaneously. They participate easily and are interested in trying new activities introduced to them.

Ages 8 – 10

This age group of children understands and applies logical operations, or principals, to interpret experiences objectively and rationally. They have the ability to learn and logically understand the basic concepts and themes. Because of their cognitive development, we teach this age group of students more abstract concepts. We emphasize not only verbal skills, but also age-appropriate grammar.

Focused Education

We maintain a student-teacher ratio of 6:1-Abejitas, 7:1-Colibríes, 7:1-Pajaritos: 24:3 teachers and 1 teacher assistant for TK and Kindergarten. A small class size ensures that each child receives individual attention and is introduced to new concepts when he/she is ready to learn them.

 

Opportunity

Children have the opportunity to experiment with real-life scenarios. We use various tools to generate dialogs with our students. And of course, all conversation and instruction are in Spanish. Overall, we want to offer children the opportunity to enjoy learning the Spanish language while experiencing multiple skills to enhance their learning, confidence, self-esteem, imagination, cognitive development, and academic abilities.
