Spanish courses for children 6 to 12 years old

Our Spanish courses for children are especially designed for children aged 6 to 12 years as a part of a family language trip to Spain with their parents or their mother/father. The goal of the course is to introduce the children playfully to the Spanish language, without making them feel that they are at school. The classes take place partly in the classroom and outside in the wonderful children’s park of our village or on the square. In small groups of 4 to 6 children, in 4 classes of 45 minutes per day, the children learn to communicate in Spanish, play language games, some of them including movement, sing Spanish songs, do arts & crafts, paint, listen to Spanish music and do role plays in which they communicate in Spanish in daily life situations of a child. We encourage the kids to contribute their own ideas to the program.

Spanish course for children in Spain in the summer holidays vacations

You as a parent can participate in the Spanish course for adults while your children are in class, and acquire useful knowledge of Spanish, together with other parents or single parents. The knowledge acquired in the course will greatly simplify travelling in Spain and give you a deeper insight into Spanish culture and lifestyle. Or you can just enjoy your holidays while your children are learning and practicing Spanish.

In the free time we organize interesting activities for parents and children if you are interested. There are a lot of optional activities that can be organized by the language school’s team, such as canoeing, hiking, horse riding, workshops such as painting ceramics or cultural visits to the famous White Villages nearby. If you and your children feel adventurous, we can organize a canyoning activity in the natural park which  is really fun. And there are a lot of activities that you can do on your own or together with other families participating in the family program.

Spanish activities with local children

For a more complete and fruitful immersion in the Spanish language, we suggest that the children have their Spanish classes in the afternoons and in the mornings participate in activities with local children. There are several options, which can be combined:

Option 1 – Sports camp

In first week of July, in our local village a sports camp is organized by a local sports club which includes activities such as soccer, basketball, swimming, and several games, from Monday to Friday. The fee is approx. € 80 per child and includes a customized shirt and some shorts.

The Spanish classes are organized around the sports camp in the afternoons from 4:00 pm.

Option 2 – “Ludoteca”

The activities of the “Ludoteca”, including experiments, workshops like painting or recycling, dancing and theater, start at the beginning of July until the middle of August, from Mondays to Fridays from 9:00am to 2:00pm. The price is approx. €25 per child per week.

With this option, the Spanish classes start at 4:00 pm, from Mondays to Fridays. The weekends are free, feel free to ask us for suggestions for your own family activity plans.

Longer sabbatical with your children

If you are looking for a longer immersion stay for your children, please just ask us. We can organize different options, e.g. a combination of Spanish language classes and participation in activities for local children like soccer, karate or music school.  When your children have acquired a certain level of Spanish and feel prepared for that experience, we can help get them enrolled in the local elementary school for a period. This option is possible for children from 6 to 12 years old, which is the age span of the Spanish elementary school.

Spanish Language Camp for Children

If you are looking for a Spanish language camp for a group of children or teenagers, with the possibility of an exchange with Spanish children and teenagers, please contact us. We have been organizing German-Spanish language camps for children and teenagers for groups from Germany and Spain since 2008. The mornings are dedicated to deepening the foreign language with communicative activities. In the afternoons and evenings, there are joint bilingual activities, games and workshops with the Spanish children or teenagers. The camps are with 24-hour supervision, at a campsite in the natural park with its own swimming pool. Parents are not permitted to stay at the camp to allow the children to be fully immersed in the group dynamic. If the parents arrive with their children, we suggest that the parents stay in the province of Cadiz, Seville or Malaga and explore the rich natural and cultural heritage of this part of Andalusia.
