¡HOLA! A Playgroup in Spanish is a unique immersion, grass-roots program in which babies 12 months to elementary school-age kids enter the world of the Spanish language. Its success in teaching Spanish to young children and its special language acquisition philosophy is based on more than 16-years of experience. Year- round programs teach through hands-on play and exploration and include a wide curriculum aimed to steep students in language and communication skills. For ¡HOLA! students, the language surfaces spontaneously with great confidence and enthusiasm.
Through the program’s activities, children build and enhance cognitive, fine- gross motor, social, and artistic skills, and the program focuses on a wide repertory of concepts to build vocabulary, and help children acquire the correct use of phonetics from a native speaker, among many other benefits to their development. Play, artistic expression and socialization are the touchstones of ¡HOLA!’s programs.
¡HOLA!’s classes are taught using visual, auditory and verbal input, including original and traditional music, games, props, art, movement, play and literacy, engaging children in a multi-sensory learning process.
Children get to love Spanish with ¡HOLA! because it’s taught in the most fun and educational way, engaging children in this very special process of language learning.
