Children's Spanish Immersion Program
The Children’s Spanish Immersion program is designed for children from the age of 8 to 13 years old. Teenagers from 14 years of age and up will be placed in the regular adult Spanish classes. This children’s program is available at four ISLS campuses in Costa Rica: Turrialba, Arenal, Playa Dominical and Playa Tamarindo. These special classes are held at the school’s facility and are taught by teachers that are conversant with the needs and abilities of young children.
During the course of the lessons the children will have the opportunity to get out of the classroom and have lessons outside. They will have different games and activities that will be done primarily in Spanish and will be done in a fun and interesting way in order to keep them interested and learning. The school also has specially designed educational material and lessons that are use to introduce grammar, and vocabulary as well as the structure of the language.
These classes are run at the same time and with the same schedule as the adult language program. The cost of Children's Spanish Program is between $280/week and $375/week, depending upon location. This includes four hours/day of classes, lessons, activities and transportation during the program. Lodging is separate and families can stay with specially chosen local families.
Our ISLS children’s program is a very comprehensive Spanish immersion opportunity. It offers families the opportunity to expose their children to the Spanish language at a young age. As most language experts will tell you, it is much easier to teach a child another language at a young age then it is to teach an adult. For more information, please Contact Us.
