The Gift of Language was born in 2013, as a necessity for my kids to learn and keep the language, tried many programs and none fulfilled my expectations, given that I grew up in Latin America, conversation is an important piece of the puzzle of learning another language.
In addition, I believe that the key to language success is practice, practice and more practice. Learning a language requires motivation and drive, but when it is fun at the same time, it becomes a whole lot easier. This is the main thing that I incorporated in all my teaching over the years.
Languages are like a puzzle, once you figure out the pieces, your brain will take off and never look back, we will build vocabulary and verb conjugation it order to make that happen.
The Gift of Language Spanish Learning Center focuses primarily on listening and speaking skills.
Our instructors use dramatic presentation, clear visuals, miming gestures, facial expression to enhance both, comprehension and fun while immersed in the Spanish language, with these methods, children learn a second language without the need of translation.
Our classes have multiple components; singing, story time, occasional outdoor activities, instruction time and arts and crafts. All designed to appeal to a young child’s sense of discovery and wonder.
Our small groups of 5-6 children foster individualized learning. Our instructor’s challenge each child to develop comprehension, basic verbal skills, and increased spontaneous speech and his or her own pace.
Most language learners want to speak a language before they can do anything else, because communication is key.
Our curriculum incorporates a mix of culture, grammar and intrigue in a real life immersion setting in each camp. Students will learn about the country through projects inspired by each culture. They will get to experience a little bit, of what is like to travel to each of these desirable areas, learning about their music, food, entertainment and more.
