How Does it Work?

This Spanish Classes for Kids course runs for 10 weeks. Classes take place on Fridays at 4:30pm at our tuition centre in Castletroy, Limerick. 

This course is suitable for primary school children aged 8 – 12 years old. All levels and abilities are catered for – just let us know if your child has learned Spanish before and we will place them in the most appropriate group. 

Why Should Your 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.
