Grab your favorite snacks and get ready to chit chat in Spanish! Language is SUCH a social tool and it’s so important for our children to get the opportunity to use their language with peers. This snacktime conversation club is for students who are already conversationally fluent in Spanish and want to get the chance to interact with other Spanish speakers their age, with no strict agenda. Kids will be encouraged to talk around a fun and engaging weekly theme, and then will be free to just chat and go on any tangent they like. Sample weekly topics include: Would You Rather, Pet and Stuffies Show & Tell, Lego Constructions & Other Creations Tours, Best Vacation Ever, Nature Walk, How I Spend the Holidays, and more! This “club” type class will not have any specific lesson or instructional time, but rather the teacher will just moderate to make sure everything runs smoothly and that kids are able to maintain their conversation in Spanish (i.e. introducing the theme, helping with a word if a child doesn’t know it in Spanish, or encouraging them back into Spanish if they stray). This class will be kept as micro-size (6 children max) so that each child gets plenty of air time and interaction with his/her peers. (This class is open only to students who are already advanced/fluent speakers of Spanish and will have no problem maintaining conversation in the target language.) (You're free to choose either or both days, the weekly topic will be same on both days, but will be a little varied so that kids attending both days will still feel like it's still exciting.)
Activity conducted via Zoom. Parental help needed to get kids set up, and may be needed in case of any technical difficulty.

This class was a great opportunity for my daughter to become more comfortable conversing in Spanish. She was able to relate to the class topics and enjoyed sharing about herself. She particularly enjoyed that most classes included a show and tell portion. It was a relaxed environment w/great moderating!

small size was nice
I wasn't expecting English could be used. Instructor was translating a lot. I'm not sure if other kids needed it. We were expecting 100% Spanish.

Love that the instructors guided the conversation and it felt very relaxed! I think it put my little one at ease and made her feel confident practicing her Spanish speaking skills

About Bilingüitos Spanish Immersion
Bilingüitos exists to cultivate and celebrate bilingualism all around us. We are locally run Spanish immersion programs based out of Loudoun County, Virginia. As of summer 2020 we are also happy to be offering online programs. We offer language classes and programs for children of all ages — Mommy & Me, Preschool, Afterschool, you name it. We also have classes for adult learners because we believe in bilingualism for all! In addition to teaching language through classroom games, activities, and lessons, we also believe in enrichment programs (think interdisciplinary skills anywhere from science experiments to art projects to cooking classes to yoga) because we want our students to be able to use their bilingualism across all domains. Both at our facility and through off-site private/charter classes, we are committed to our local community. For all those in the pursuit of bilingualism, we extend the opportunity to learners of all linguistic backgrounds — native speakers, heritage language students, and second language learners alike. Our mission in the classroom is to create a positive multicultural learning environment where our students explore and discover freely, immerse themselves in a new language and culture, and gain the self-confidence they need as they grow into future bilingual leaders. Beyond the classroom, we are a vibrant and diverse community of families who are passionate about bilingualism and dedicated to instilling a lifelong love for learning in their children. We delight in bringing our local bilingual community together through playdates, storytimes, seasonal parties, movie nights, and other events all around Loudoun. Finally, through our online resources like our blog and podcast, we aim to equip parents with the knowledge and tools they need in order to forge the path to bilingualism for their children. We believe that adding and maintaining a second language is not always easy, but that it is always, A L W A Y S worth it!
