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!

Individual Classes Offered
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.
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.
