How does your at-the-school program work?
- We have awesome teachers all around the US that go to elementary schools and teach Spanish before or after school to the students there. These are parent-funded, no cost to the district, and headache free long-term language programs for the schools. We take care of every part of the program - all the schools have to do is let their students' parents know about the opportunity, and we do the rest! All of our teachers teach using our super effective methods, kids have fun and love learning Spanish, and parents love the convenience of their child being able to learn Spanish right at their school!
What is your refund policy?
- Once your spot in reserved in a class, we can refund you your full amount paid up until 1 week before the start of class. If you need to cancel after that, you will receive 75% of your amount paid.
Am I too old to learn another language?
- With our methods of teaching, no one is too old to learn another language! We have a holistic, real-life approach to teaching a language, the environment is fun and stress-free, it is conversationally focused. We have had adults up to the age of 75 learning Spanish at our school, and they learned a lot and had fun! It keeps your brain young and establishes new connections, so it is super beneficial to learn no matter how "old" you think you are!
Will learning another language hurt my child's ability to learn English better, or make them slow at learning anything else?
- Absolutely not! It is actually the opposite. Children that are bilingual have a better vocabulary than students that just know English. Both languages are derived from Latin, so there are words that are very similar. For example, in our Elementary Spanish 1 class students learn how to talk about the weather. "Hace sol" means that it is sunny. Students are able to eventually make connection with "sol" and "sun" with things like "solar powered" and "solar system". Also, science words are latin also, so by learning Spanish students score higher on standardized tests in science as well (a simple example of this is that "dormir" means "to sleep", and students learn about how the "dorm" part has something to do with sleep such as when a volcano is "dormant"). Kids with bilingual brains are amazingly intelligent!
