Spanish Immersion Program

Annapolis Language School is now offering Spanish immersion Program for 2013-2014. REGISTRATION FOR 2013-2014 NOW OPEN.

¡Bienvenidos!

Annapolis Language School's full immersion model is based on children's innate ability to acquire language at an early age.  Experts agree that the earlier a child is exposed and begins to learn a new language the better.  In infancy, even short periods of interpersonal exposure to a new language can make a big impact on brain development.  Communication is ignited when content is engaging and personally relevant to the classroom community.

Philosophy:

The children are in a total immersion classroom and the teachers interact with the children only in the target language.  English will only be spoken to address behavioral problems, but the target language will be used before English.

Children do not need to be potty trained to enroll.  Class is without caregiver.

A child's day may include art, crafts, music and singing, stories and many other enjoyable and creative activities.  Our goal is to make learning another language exciting and fun, allowing the children to learn through play, without noticing that they are learning a new language.

Benefits of learning a Foreign Language at an Early Age:

Researchers have discovered that children who learn a language outside of their native tongue have a multitude of cognitive benefits:

-- They score higher on standardized tests in math and reading.
-- They have increased creativity.
-- They have increased mental flexibility.
-- They have better listening and memory skills.
-- They are more open and have a greater appreciation for other cultures.
-- They have improved self-concepts and sense of achievement.

When filling out the enrollment application, please mark 1st, 2nd, 3rd and even 4th choice if available.

You'll be notified as soon as possible of placement. You must pay the first month's tuition by September 1, 2013. In this way you will accept the placement and THIS PAYMENT WILL BE NON-REFUNDABLE.
