Spanish Immersion Preschool Program German Immersion After-School Program Adult instruction in ESL, German & Spanish (individuals or pairs of adults).
SPANISH IMMERSION PROGRAM AT MPPLC Program Description The children in our program learn Spanish the same way they learned their mother tongue – by being fully immersed in it. Through music, art, stories, games and play, the children enjoy normal preschool activities in a Spanish Immersion classroom with two native Spanish speaking teachers. Our goal is to open the hearts and minds of all these children to a whole new world of adventure using Spanish as the key. 2K Class: These children are curious, creative, and very imaginative. Everything is new and exciting. They are so busy learning to interact with peers, participating in group activities, creating their own art, enjoying new music, songs and stories that they don’t question why the classroom language is different(Spanish). It’s just another new experience. They will add new words to their vocabulary while discovering that things can have more than one name (English or Spanish) – why not? They will learn that people look different and sound different, but are just as wonderful as everyone else in their world. Our goal is to encourage these children to develop a life-long love of the Spanish language and culture. 3K Class: These children are also curious, creative and very imaginative. However, they know that our class is different and they are ready to dive in. We offer a normal preschool program were the students interact with peers, participate in group activities, create their own arts and crafts, and continue to enjoy new music, songs and stories. Our weekly program takes one theme from circle time, where new vocabulary is introduced, through songs, stories and their art project for the day. They have the opportunity to learn, practice and use the vocabulary in several different settings. We continually use the “old” vocabulary as we introduce the “new”. Our goal is to help the children build a solid foundation in Spanish while encouraging them to develop a life-long love of the Spanish language and culture. 4K Class: These children are confident and comfortable with Spanish being spoken around them. As a Spanish teacher said, it “clicks” for them as they begin to use this amazing language tool. The students participate in group activities, create their own arts and crafts, and continue to enjoy new music, songs and stories.

GERMAN AFTER-SCHOOL IMMERSION PROGRAM for children/youth with a working knowledge of German Program Description Native German speakers lead this course. The focus of the class will be on spoken German, using a structured curriculum to improve grammar and vocabulary skills. Activities will include written worksheets, games, stories, art and music. The class is designed for children whose German language skills range from a working knowledge to fully competent. The children will have a low-stress, fun environment in which to gain confidence to use and improve their German language skills. ADULT INSTRUCTION ESL, German and Spanish We offer instruction and conversation for individuals or pairs of adults, in corporate or private settings. Some of our students are foreign nationals who have relocated to the area and wish to improve fluency and breadth of English vocabulary. Others are Americans preparing to go abroad that wish to develop their language skills and knowledge of the target culture (German, French, Spanish.) Enquire about a solution tailored to you.
Mission: Our goal is to open the hearts and minds of all our young students to a whole new world of adventure using language as the key. We strive to offer our adults the language tools they need to enjoy the adventure on their own terms. We use native speakers for all our classes.

Who doesn't love a beautiful "mariposa".
Our students love using all 5 senses to learn about their world. With "orugas" they loved the feel, look, and smell. They were able to create their own versions of the life cycle of the butterfly through their art projects, look at the pictures and touch the models. Don't worry though, no one tried to eat an "orgua"... Yuck!
Throughout class, the teachers use every opportunity to review - like Ms. Nini who is using numbers and colors as she explains what an oruga should or should not eat. The teachers work one-on-one every class so students can practice their new words. Finally, our students love book time and are always proud of their art projects.
Who says learning new words can't be fun?! Especially when you use balloons to make your own class "oruga" or use balloon shaped paper before you even play with the balloons.
In circle time the children met our class "orugas". They gently touched the "orguas", then learned about each stage in the life cycle of a butterfly. Starting with el huevo, then becoming la orgua, then disappearing into el capullo to reappear as a "mariposa".
We have just finished another student favorite class - La Oruga Muy Hambrienta where we looked at the life cycle of a butterfly starting with our own "orugas".
We love curious/happy faces! Ok, maybe all the red balls and holding your castanets "just so" are a little distracting.
Ms. Sonia loves explaining the traditional Spanish attire, how to hold your fan like a lady and how to make castanets work.
Everyone needs a lantern for a festival. This art project had everyone covered in glitter and giggles.
Everyone enjoys dressing up & learning the Flamenco steps. Flamenco is an integral part of the festival as Seville is the cultural epicenter of flamenco culture and music. So can you guess why Ms. Ingrid from Colombia had to help Ms. Maria from Spain with the dance moves?
Our Spanish teachers, Ms. Sonia and Ms. Maria, led our classes in the celebration of La Feria de Abril. This yearly spring festival takes place in Seville where the first cattle trading fair was held in 1847.
From our school family to all of you, we wish you and your families a Blessed Easter!
The students made bunnies, colorful eggs, had parties and Easter egg hunts. Our students are very good to help each other.
This week the students worked on Easter projects. Our lessons start with circle time, go through snack, and on to art projects.
An important part of our day is recess! After all the hard work, everyone needs time to run & play.
After every 3 lessons, we have a review lesson to make sure that the students hold on to their new words. Truthfully, every class has review opportunities as the teachers use all the words that the students have learned such as colors, numbers, shapes, animal names, and commands, etc over and over again.
The teachers always give the students the chance to "teach" the group during circle time. Another way to build their confidence as they learn the new Spanish vocabulary.
Every student's favorite part of this lesson is take their full-size drawing of themselves home.
Ms. Nini is working with these 2k students to match the pictures to the words. They are learning la ropa that you wear on tu cuerpo.
Ms. Rocio introduces this class to Mi Cuerpo during circle time then on to practicing the new words and making art projects using the words. One student wanted to draw the baby on her paper.
One of our favorite lessons is Mi Cuerpo. Follow Ms. Sonia as she takes this class from circle time to vocabulary practice to their art project and book time.
Our students work really hard to have fun with everything we do!
Cutting, coloring, drawing and pasting pictures helps the students connect the Spanish words to the items they name.
Let Ms. Ingrid and this young man teach you some of the Spanish words the students learned while working on "mi casa" and "la escuela".
Our 3 "Spanish" Musketeers are very proud of their work.
This week the students learned about "La Escuela." They started with the new vocabulary in circle time, then moved on to art projects.
Then the students practice the new words with the teachers as they touch, color, and paste all the parts of their houses together.
Teachers introduce weekly topics during circle time. In this lesson, the students see "mi casa", they hear the words as the teacher points to the picture. Then they touch the item as they repeat the words.
Creative dress-up is a fun activity for our pre-schoolers. A "real" pageant in each class was a big hit. Everyone wore crowns and sashes. There were many "winners"!
The students, especially the girls, enjoyed their own Colombian Pageant.
Music and dance is an every day event in our classes. The students loved learning a few salsa steps.
Pandebono is a Colombian cheese bread. We could tell by all the smiles that it was a big hit.
Ms. Ingrid led our students on a visit to her home country of Colombia. What a week of Pandebono's, flags, crowns, pageants and salsa!
Ms. Fiona and Ms. Rocio are guiding our students through circle time and snack.
The arepas were a big hit. Ms. Diana and Ms. Maria are shown here with students.
The students loved making their own waterfalls which they used as hats, tambourines and wonderful kites. Their imaginations have no limit.
Oops.. forgot to mention all the palm trees!
