About the program:
From las playas hermosas del caribe to las montañas altas del Sur, El Taller's "Aventuras del Verano" summer Spanish program gives children an immersive language experience filled with art, dance and music! Each week, students will find inspiration in the culture, history and geography of a different country and its traditions. They will develop vocabulary around the country's themes through music, movement, art projects, storytelling, and games taught primarily in Spanish. Classes are taught by native speakers in a bilingual format with approximately 75% of the class taught in Spanish. Special guests from each week's country add excitement and vibrancy to the curriculum!
