Learn Spanish this year with Nanos Spanish

Parents are very aware of the value of languages in today’s world and they know of the advantages that young children have when learning them in early childhood.
Studies suggest that children learning an additional language tend to score better on standardized tests because learning languages develops listening, observation, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. These are transferable skills that are of life-long benefit, both personally and professionally. At Nanos Spanish we offer classes for parents and children to learn together and online resources to learn at home if you cannot make it to the classes. Our online structured course, provides monthly illustrated vocabulary with sounds, interactive videos with graphics and songs that will make the children participate and be active with the language, extra activities to reinforce the vocabulary and our song lyrics for the parents to help out with the singing. Our level 1 is designed for 1 to 4 year olds and our level 2 for 5 to 7 year olds. Starting or supporting a language learning journey together is a stimulating and enriching experience to treasure and enjoy.
