You can start exposing tots as young as six months old to a new language through props, songs and engaging activities right as they’re also grasping their primary language. Once they turn three, sign them up for 15-week and 30-week immersion courses where they’ll learn how to form sentences, create stories and play games that reinforce lessons and new vocabulary. Each kid also receives a free songs and activity workbook, CD and storybook to continue practicing lessons at home. Ages 6 months–8.
If your goal is to raise bilingual children, then signing your tots up for Spanish classes for kids is a great bet. Not only will they learn Spanish through immersive and engaging activities, but they’ll make new friends and challenge their developing brains in different ways. If Spanish isn’t their taza de té, then check out other foreign language classes for kids or after-school programs for all ages. And if you’ve got wee littles on your hands who are still too small to head into class, how about grabbing bilingual baby books instead? You might find yourself learning a thing or two, too!
