Children learn a new language much more easily than adults. The earlier children are exposed to a foreign language, the easier it is for them to pick up grammar and vocabulary and learn to communicate naturally with native speakers.
Here at Ixchel Spanish School we have developed special courses for children that teach Spanish in a playful and fun way that is adapted to children's interests and learning styles at different ages.
Now your entire family can learn Spanish while you are in Antigua!
Spanish for Children is taught by teachers that were specially trained to work with children. Most of them also hold degrees as elementary school teachers.
There is no fixed minimum age, but children participating in this course should be able to read and write on at least a basic level. For younger children we can arrange childcare while their parents are in class.
Spanish for Children is available for children of all age groups and is adapted to their needs and interests.
Young children learn Spanish in a playful way that catches their interest and makes their first steps into the Spanish language interesting and fun. Games, songs and multimedia are used to encourage children to develp their communication skills.
For older children, the lessons become more structured and include more elements to develp their knowledge of the Spanish grammar and build their vocabulary in a more formal way.
For children in their mid-teens and up, grammar lessons and exercises become more similar to those in the adult courses. Conversation practice revolves around topics that interest teenagers and games still play an important part.
Ixchel Spanish School is great for all levels and ages of Spanish speakers. I am 13 years old and it is the third time my mom and I have come to Ixchel. The curriculum covers so much and the teachers are so great.
I always have so much fun while learning Spanish here! My teachers here at Ixchel have always met my expectations.

The Spanish course my sister and I participated in surpassed our expectations. We experienced no problems with the lessons or the other services the school provided.
We especially enjoyed the games and being immersed into the local community. It was a great balance of learning Spanish and helping with English.
