No need to cross the ocean!  You need only go as far as Language Stars Deerfield to travel with us to “Spain” on President’s Day. Children of all ages from infants and up are welcome, which makes this a perfect excursion for your day off of school.

Native-speaking and energetic instructors will tell stories, sing songs and facilitate various games and activities.   They will learn about Spain and the fastest growing language in the United States.

From the Pew Research Center:

With more than 37 million speakers, Spanish is by far the most spoken non-English language in the U.S. today among people ages 5 and older. It is also one of the fastest-growing, with the number of speakers up 233% since 1980, when there were 11 million Spanish speakers.

According to a 2011 paper by U.S. Census Bureau Demographers Jennifer Ortman and Hyon B. Shin, the number of Spanish speakers is projected to rise through 2020 to anywhere between 39 million and 43 million, depending on the assumption one makes about immigration.

The Language Stars method is known as “FunImmersion®.” The folks at Language Stars understand young children learn best through play, so classes feel festive not academic. Children think they’re playing with friends instead of a language lesson!

For a firsthand account, check out my review of a Language Stars class from 2014.
