  • Spanish enrichment continues at St. Mark!

     Capture the opportunity in your child’s development!


    • Research studies have indicated the benefits of introducing foreign language skills at an early age!
    • Students at a young age absorb a foreign vocabulary as if they were learning new words in English. There is no translation factor – only absorption!
    • Younger students have flexibility with their tongues enabling them to pronounce foreign words with proper enunciation and accentuation!


    SPANISH FOR THE ELEMENTARY YEARS is an educationally oriented, fun and interactive program designed specifically for the K – 2 elementary student. The unique six-week curriculum features foundation vocabulary introduced through games, singing and hands-on activities. Our program uses a 5-year rotation of lesson plans! St. Mark’s will offer four 6-week sessions (24 weeks of Spanish) throughout the 2016-2017 school year! New students and returning students can join any session!


    CultureKids focuses on teaching a foundation vocabulary base. Vocabulary repetition is vital to the learning process! Words are introduced weekly in a multisensory approach with games and song to engrain the vocabulary into memory. Each 6-week session introduces/reinforces vocabulary from previous New York State standardized tests. Students at an elementary level build familiarity and confidence with this vocabulary. Each week students are given a take-home sheet to continue reinforcing the vocabulary and share with their family. Similar to learning English, students develop a base vocabulary and then begin compounding words to eventually form simple sentences.


    New vocabulary and activities are introduced with each 6-week session allowing returning students to continue expanding their vocabulary base and new students to begin building their vocabulary base – classes are never a repeat!


    Enroll your child for this amazing educational experience!
