Spanish classes online
Level A (5-7 years old)
La finalidad principal del curso es mantener viva nuestra lengua materna y que los niños logren utilizar el idioma español para comunicarse con otras personas más allá de las de su círculo familiar. Las clases estarán centradas en promover el desarrollo de la lecto-escritura: jugaremos con los sonidos de las letras y de las sílabas para poder formar y reconocer palabras. A su vez, se estimulará a los niños para que avancen en la adquisición de estrategias para la comunicación social.
Las clases están abiertas a todos aquellos niños hispanohablantes, ya sean provenientes de América Latina como España o nacidos en otros países pero con padres hispanohablantes. Si bien hay pequeñas diferencias entre el español de España y el español de Latinoamérica en referencia a algunas palabras, el acento y costumbres, el curso se volverá más enriquecedor si compartimos nuestras riquezas culturales.
Level A, seven classes
Este curso está pensado para niños que comprenden y hablan español. Las clases estarán focalizadas en promover y enriquecer su expresión verbal y en iniciarlos en el proceso de decodificación de la lecto-escritura. Todo esto en un contexto de intercambio con otros compañeros en un plano virtual, donde los más importante es aprender juntos y divertirnos.
Aquí pueden encontrar una actividad propia para este nivel. Los niños deberán escribir la letra inicial que falta para formar el nombre de cada animal. Los padres pueden ayudarlos haciendo hincapié en el sonido de la letra faltante para que los niños puedan reconocerla. Si se sienten cómodos con este ejercicio, ya están listos para participar de este curso.

Complaints that come to us early will be dealt with on a case by case basis according to individual circumstances.
Complaints made at the end of the course: If the complaint is about the quality of the course, we will assess the complaint on the basis of all the feedback that is given to us by attendees – if the feedback is generally positive, then individual negative feedback will be considered in the context of the course description and whether the brief was more or less adhered to by the facilitator. Unless the facilitator deviated significantly from the course outline, then we will assume the course achieved its aim.
