ENRICHMENT, DAILY, FULL-IMMERSION SPANISH CLASSES: It’s not too late to sign up with Viva el Español to learn Spanish through games, songs, stories and art projects.  This full-immersion approach is offered before school every school day, which assists in reinforcing lessons learned.  Students will learn vocabulary related to a variety of everyday themes, practice using it within sentences, and master many useful phrases.  They will also learn about various traditions of different Spanish speaking countries.  Curriculum for continuing students builds on what they learned in the first year of our program, further expanding to new subject areas and more complex phrases.
