Group Spanish lessons for children in Savannah

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Spanish classes for kids in Savannah PlaySpanish

New PlaySpanish group classes in Savannah start Jan. 7 2017 for children ages 1-10.

Immersion learning is the way children learn naturally and in these group classes your children will be so busy having fun and making friends they won’t even realize they’re learning a new language!

Why? The benefits of being able to communicate with a few hundred million more people are obvious. What you might not know is that the regular use of a second language whether fluent or while learning is great exercise for your child’s brain! This better prepares them to excel in all subjects in school, not just in foreign languages.

Call today for details. Space is limited: 719 502 7685.

New class times

Mami y yo (ages 1-3) Mondays 10AM, Saturdays 4PM;
Los Kinders (ages 4-6) Mondays 430PM, Saturdays 3PM;
Los ecolares (ages 7-10) Mondays 530PM, Saturdays 5PM.
