From the moment your child walks in the door to the moment he/she leaves, your child will be immersed in a world of Spanish. Everything will be in Spanish!
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.
The children are in a total immersion camp 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.
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.
