SPANISH LANGUAGE AND CULTURES PROGRAM
Spanish is taught daily in the afternoon. In keeping with Dr. Maria Montessori’s own globalism and in commitment to international studies, we teach our children (future citizenry) the foreign cultures of Spanish speaking countries in North America, South America and Spain. Our exceptional afterschool Spanish curriculum for children is designed to support busy families.
Additionally, as much as possible, we strive to expose children to languages indigenous to Princeton Preparatory School teachers as well as other foreign languages.
EACH CLASS INCLUDES:
Development of ear training and sight-singing through the use of solfege is an integral part of the program. Songs are also used for expressive singing and to reinforce dynamics and the teaching of concepts.
Story telling engages a child’s natural curiosity and learning through engaging stories. The more they listen, the more they learn. Simple sentences are broken down into easy-to-understand parts and are reinforced through repetition by native speakers.
They’ll learn simple phrases, numbers, shapes, colors, and eventually conversational vocabulary. Instruction by native speaking teachers helps children retain the new words and phrases.
