Spanish Champs at Foundations Learning Academy

Foundations Learning Academy utilizes the Spanish Champs curriculum.

It is wonderful to start learning Spanish in preschool and kindergarten. Children have a window of opportunity to become familiar with Spanish before they realize they are learning a new language. If you can develop a foundation and familiarity in Spanish at a young age (before 6 or 7), children can rapidly accelerate their knowledge of Spanish in later years by tapping into various resources like songs, cartoons, and videos. 

Learning a Spanish at an early age,   

  1. Has a positive effect on intellectual growth.
  2. Enriches and enhances a child's mental development.
  3. Leaves students with more flexibility in thinking, greater sensitivity to language, and a better ear for listening.
  4. Improves a child's understanding of his/her native language.
  5. Gives a child the ability to communicate with people s/he would otherwise not have the chance to know.
  6. Opens the door to other cultures and helps a child understand and appreciate people from other countries.
  7. Gives a student a head start in language requirements for college.
  8. Increases job opportunities in many careers where knowing another language is a real asset.

Learning a second language not only provides the benefits of being more competitive in a global economy, but research shows that learning Spanish also improves reading, vocabulary and comprehension in English. In addition, learning Spanish has been shown to improve math abilities.  Learning a second language is amazingly stimulating for the brain and may help a child’s development in many social and academic areas.
