Join us this Autumn for the launch of our Saturday Creative School, a unique course for children, designed to help them learn and practice their Spanish through a range of fun, dynamic and interactive learning activities.
We have curated a unique curriculum that invites children to enjoy the wonderful world of the Spanish language and culture. Highly experienced teachers and carefully handpicked Spanish and Latin American artists will introduce the children to their craft and guide them through its culture and language. From the basics of Spanish to more advanced story-telling, children will be stimulated and encouraged to learn, whilst having fun and making new friends! They will also be given a Creative School Diary to complete on a weekly basis, as they consolidate and progress with their Spanish.
This is an 8 week course, running from the 15th of October to the 3rd of December, from 10 to 11.30 am. It is open to children from the ages of 4 to 10, who either are new to the language or already familiar with it.
You can buy single sessions, but to take advantage of the full learning experience and gain savings, we recommend the whole pack.
For families who would like to sign up more than 1 child to the full course, they will receive a 10% discount off the total amount. If this is the case, please write to email@example.com to get the discount code.
