Spanish Classes for Children

Established in 2008, Spring Into Spanish offers fun, immersion-style language lessons for children, taught by Miche Baskett with 20+ years experience. From beginners to bilinguals, we all love Spring Into Spanish! We'll sing, play, read, laugh, create, build confidence, and grow brain power all while having a blast! Activities to do at home between the lessons support families who want to make Spanish a part of their everyday lives, or for homeschooling families who want to dedicate more time to Spanish learning. The literature-based curriculum is abundant with examples of the Spanish language from many countries and the lessons are designed to be both challenging and encouraging to a range of Spanish abilities. Small class-sizes keep students engaged. Online options make it possible to join our language learning community from anywhere in the world and from the convenience of home!

Individual Classes Offered Online

Group classes are motivating and fun, but time spent one-on-one with Sra. Baskett can also be very enjoyable. In group classes, students learn from each other and practice Spanish with their peers. In an individual class, the student can progress at their own speed. Most students do very well in small group classes, however, for students interested in private instruction, you can can register for an individual class. The one-on-one option is offered to any student, ages 4 to 12. The lessons are conducted online via Zoom, meet once-a-week, last thirty minutes, and will follow the Spring Into Spanish curriculum and calendar. Contact Sra. Baskett to find out about availability. Enroll in a ten-week session for $350.


Tutoring Online

Though group classes are more economical for the family and very motivating for the student, some families prefer one-on-one instruction. In this case, I recommend the Individual Classes that follow the Spring Into Spanish curriculum and calendar. However, for families seeking individualized and customized tutoring, contact Sra. Baskett to find out about availability. Tutoring is $40 for 30 minutes.

recommended for students in the pre-K classes; space for no more than a dozen students

Thursdays at 1pm

DPCC students can enroll in an extra hour of extended fun with Sra. Baskett at DPCC after the school day on Thursdays. A small group of students (no more than a dozen) will enjoy art, music, and play while immersed in the Spanish language. Recommended for students in the 4-year-old classes (younger siblings or three-year-olds who are independent in the bathroom may possibly enroll with permission). $150 for a ten-week session; second sibling $105.
