Spanish Immersion Daycare FAQs

Spanish immersion programs involve classes taught in Spanish. Schools that offer these programs hold daily classroom activities to help students naturally learn Spanish. Students enrolled in these classes learn through repetition, songs, role-playing, and games. We make learning fun, so you can expect your child to stay comfortable as they learn! After all, students who feel more comfortable in the classroom can grasp Spanish faster.

A Spanish immersion school, as the name suggests, engages students in a Spanish curriculum. The goal of each classroom is to help students learn another language.

Spanish immersion schools offer either total or dual immersion programs. Total immersion helps students use the second language so they can speak more comfortably in Spanish. Meanwhile, dual-immersion programs split class time into learning two languages so kids can speak and write better.

Spanish immersion programs give your little one full exposure to Spanish so they can learn quickly. Some of its benefits include:

  • Higher test scores
  • Better problem-solving skills
  • Longer attention spans
  • Better IQ & creativity
  • Promotes cultural sensitivity

Introducing your child to another language early helps them adapt to the language better. So make sure your little ones get an early start.

Children usually learn faster than adults because their brains absorb new info like a sponge. Beginners with zero knowledge about Spanish and dedicate at least one hour per day to learning the language can feel comfortable speaking to other people in Spanish within eight to twelve months.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State’s Foreign Service Institute shares that learning Spanish will take 600 to 750 class hours — and this translates into 24 to 30 weeks of learning.
