The Living Spanish study program is developed especially for children. Moreover, all of our teachers are native speakers and experienced instructors who follow a developmentally correct curriculum.Because we are introducing this new language at a very early age, we make sure to keep the learning process fun and creative using games and other interactive activities. Younger learners develop their receptive skills much faster than their productive skills, which is important to keep in mind if we are creating the basis for a more profound study of the language in the future. Our approach encourages spontaneous language production; it helps kids develop the ability to use the language in a proper and meaningful context, much in the same way that they learn their own language.
