L'Ecole de Denver is now truly multilingual. The school proudly expanded its after school enrichment program to include a third-language Spanish acquisition program for grades 4th-7th in 2021-22. Students will develop language skills and cultural competencies in a language spoken by nearly 500 million native speakers around the world.
With more than 33 million speakers, Spanish is the second largest language in the United States and the third most widely spoken language in the world. The importance of the Spanish language in the United States is expected to continue to grow.
Our goal is to provide your child with useful and meaningful Spanish language experiences in an anxiety-free, fun-filled environment, where he/she will begin to use functional Spanish to express him/herself.
We will explore and learn about the beauty and culture of Latin America. Students will experience the complete structure and sound of the Spanish language, while they enjoy participating in arts & crafts, music & movement, drama, storytelling, and interactive games.
Classes are open to children with no language proficiency or previous exposure, as well as to those whose parents want to improve their child's Spanish skills in a playful, engaging environment outside the home or usual settings.
Students meet 2 days a week after school for an hour of Spanish language instruction with a native Spanish speaking teacher, Lizbeth.
