SPANISH IMMERSION FOR CHILDREN
We believe in the importance of a 'happy learning experience' and we are committed to provide an excellent Spanish Immersion Program and help the children succeed in our multicultural world.
Our play-based Spanish Immersion program reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and language areas to promote a real language learning.
We understand that play-based method is the best way to promote a language learning and also encourage curiosity, discovery and problem solving.
