Why Should my Child Learn Spanish?
Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world with 400 million native speakers and it holds official language status in 21 countries in the world! Being able to speak Spanish could open up so many doors for your child.
Children’s brains absorb languages easily and research has shown that exposure to multiple languages at an early stage is hugely beneficial to a child’s social, emotional and cognitive development.
Spanish is a beautiful language to learn and is ranked as one of the easiest to grasp. It is a phonetic language meaning there is a direct relationship between spelling and the sound therefore words are sounded out, pronounced and spelled more easily. Children with dyslexia often find learning Spanish more manageable because of this.

Rated 5-Stars By Parents Like You!
“My 11 year old daughter completed this online Spanish course with Aisling an absolutely loved it! Aisling is really enthusiastic which motivated my daughter to stay engaged throughout the programme. She particularly liked the fact the videos could be paused and replayed in case she wanted to go back over some of the expressions or needed to take a break. The worksheets were excellent and really easy to follow. I could not recommend this course enough, not only did my daughter learn Spanish but she really enjoyed completing the programme too!”
