Sparking Creativity and Developing Tiny Learning Buds
It’s hard to imagine our kids can be even more creative than they are now, as they’re already brimming with so much creativity and unbridled imagination. But learning a new language is actually known to boost creativity. Strangely, the more your child develops their new language capabilities, the greater they’ll be at inventing new creative ideas for language learning. Essentially like an amazing feedback loop that continually helps them continually improve their language learning over time. Our Spanish classes for kids will also help increase children’s creativity, in terms of their ability to describe and understand different things. A word in another language often won’t translate literally back into your child’s native tongue. That’s why learning Spanish is a lovely way for them to flex their creativity and discover how to say things in a new way.
Longitudinal studies by Harvard University confirm that learning additional languages increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of the mind in young children. Click here to read more about this study.
Stimulating Plenty of Family Laughing Time!
Kids do the funniest things. It simply isn’t possible for them to make us chuckle more than they already do, right?.. Wrong! Humour often gets lost in translation, as the jokes we find funny in English might not be as funny in another language. Your child having access to a new language, means they’ll access a new sense of humour, too. Another brilliant way to develop socially, form bonds later in life and bring a little extra joy.Click here to learn more about how learning a new language shapes the way we think.
Suitable for babies up to 3 years of age. It’s a music and multi-sensory class using signs, actions, and a heavy helping of Spanish pizzazz! Toddlers and parents learn the language together with songs and interactive games. Introducing this early in the crucial stages of a child’s development, means children can easily stay open to particular sounds of the Spanish language. But it’s not just the language learning playing an important role - it’s also the way we support children’s general development in all areas of learning. We encourage development across the six areas of learning: personal, social and emotional development; communication and literacy; reasoning and numeracy; knowledge and understanding of the world; physical development and creative development. We do this by teaching Spanish through storytelling, arts and crafts, movement activities, matching and categorising, music, sign language, puppets, sensory exploration and more. This is an incredibly valuable experience for children, and even provides an opportunity to create friendships with like-minded families. If you’d like to set up a class in your area, we’ll work with you to achieve that!
These Spanish classes for kids are packed with songs, lively games, story-telling, drama and a lovely dose of imagination to bring the language to life and inspire our little learners. Our teaching method immerses children in the language through stories and songs, with books that are actually used in Spain and Latin America to teach children! We explore the language in these books through a wide range of activities that ensure children are kept engaged and eager to learn. Children get to experience all the classic stories, traditional games, snappy songs and activities that every child growing up in Spanish speaking countries do.
This programme is suitable for children from 6-12 years of age. It’s a fun focussed language experience encouraging structured and independent learning through games, role play and music and drama. Children start to explore the world of reading and writing in Spanish, along with simple grammar rules, through a host of games and purposeful material. This programme provides more concrete classes based on certain projects, and we provide resources to teach children grammar, reading and writing through play and simple explanations. However, we still ensure the learning environment is centred on action. We implore a ‘make and we do’ method to teach. So Spanish is never simply a subject learn, but a tool for communication they grow to use. This is the most effective way to learn any language - actively and not passively!
Overall I'm really pleased with Laura and we have really seen an improvement in Mateo's engagement with the classes and his enjoyment of trying to speak Spanish. It really has been a positive experience so far.
We trialled a few other language sessions but our session with HeySpanish was by far the most engaging and lovely. We decided to go ahead with the lessons and it was a great decision. All the children look forward to their Spanish class and keep singing the songs and saying Spanish words during the week. 100% recommended
I started as a tutor and then I made the decision to become a franchisee. I love my job as I can make my own destiny, choose my hours and decide what schools and nurseries I want to target. I can take real ownership of my career. Lucia and Laura have been hugely supportive to me since the start and the lesson plans are fantastic. Being a franchisee provides a fab work life balance.
Laura is a great teacher, she always tries to engage all children. It’s quite hard when they are so little. My son is 3.5 years old. Although my son doesn’t say much at a lesson, when he comes home he is able to say what he has learnt. I would recommend HeySpanish .
Laura is an excellent teacher, she engages the children well through music and games. Our daughter enjoys the class and regularly sings Spanish songs from the class... would recommend this class
My daughter really enjoys the Spanish classes. It's an interesting, fun and supportive learning environment. My daughter absolutely loves the song from the after school Spanish club and keeps singing them at home. The teacher is extremely patient, encouraging and truly makes learning enjoyable. This club has definitely helped my daughter gain confidence when speaking in Spanish.
My son attends the after school Spanish club and he absolutely loves it and he is making great progress. Laura is an amazing teacher and truly makes the session enjoyable for kids.
I would definitely recommend without hesitation! My daughter will join soon. I wish I could too.
A great Spanish class with great teachers. My son thoroughly enjoys the lessons. I would highly recommend this after school Spanish club to anyone.
