Menchú Language and Cultural Course
Suitable for: Bilingual children

 

Aim:
The aim of these classes will be Spanish Language learning alongside Latin American Culture, to bilingual children or those from families where Spanish is spoken on a daily basis.


Focus:
The primary focus will be language development, by studying Latin American Culture. Our overall goal is for all children to be able to communicate fluently in all real life situations.


Teaching Method:
Teaching methods will be based on total language immersion, with all classes being 100% in Spanish language only; the aim being that all children will be/become totally bilingual.


Our Classes:
Our classes will be 3 hours long, giving sufficient time to really immerse ourselves into the language and culture taught. Each term we will have one of three central themes: Conocimiento de mí mismo, Conocimiento de mi entorno, Conocimiento de las ciencias y tecnología.


Classes will be Topic based around the central theme and project type work will be produced each term, covering various subjects such as History, Geography, Science, Literature, Art and Music.


We will use different resources and materials for debate and discussion and on occasion we hope to invite parents, artists and other professionals to come and work with us.


The classes are designed to keep children interested and really motivate them through a variety of activities which will be adapted for maximum language development.

 

Spanish Language Course
Suitable for: Spanish Language Learners

Aim:
The aim of these classes will be to teach Spanish as a foreign language to children of all ages from Reception to Year 6.


Focus:
The primary focus will be language learning by developing the 4 basic skills of listening, speaking and then leading to reading and writing.
Emphasis will be placed on vocabulary, pronunciation and the use of common Spanish phrases to enable children to confidently communicate in everyday situations. Oral communication will be our top priority.


Teaching Method:
Teaching methods will be structured around songs, games and role play moving to reading, discussion and written work for the older children.


Our Classes:
We eventually aim to offer a range of levels from Beginners to Advanced. The groups will be small and age specific so that activities can be planned that will be relevant to each age group and the appropriate language level.


We will try and use Spanish as the main language of communication especially for the more advanced levels. All work will be supported with real life materials such as magazine articles, video clips, songs etc. all for the relevant age group.


As part of the Latin American House ethos, we aim to give an emphasis on Latin American culture – for example, by looking at different traditions and celebrations in each Latin American country.
