Our Methodology

Through music, story telling, dance and games Farolito’s Spanish classes for children develop your child’s language skills whilst stimulating their imagination. For the youngest learners, the focus is on oral language development; literacy is introduced from school age.

Our experienced teachers ensure to provide a nurturing and playful space for your children to learn Spanish.

Each term we focus on a particular thematic aspect (eg. “The family”) and work with the children in a project to create final products related to the topic (eg. a song, a play, a craft item). Cultural understandings are a fundamental part of the learning process and children are encouraged to “view” their world through a different culture.

Examples of central topics each term:

This is me  (introducing themselves, exchanging basic personal information such as age, pets, etc.)
This is my family
My city
People in my city
Earth is my home
Water is life
Let’s play music

Classes include:

An introduction/Recap
An activity to set the context
A creative activity/project activity to enhance the child’s imagination and reinforce vocabulary and grammar structures in the long term memory
A farewell activity
