Learning a language is a journey that takes time and effort. Both parents and children need to be patient and encouraging with their progress! Remind your children that learning a language is extremely difficult, and that is okay! Expedition Spanish is here to make that journey fun so that students stay engaged and want to continue their language-learning adventures and see them through to fluency! It’s okay to make mistakes and that perseverance is key to success.
Talk to your children about what being an active participant looks like in class. One of the most common occurrences that can lead to a child’s downfall in any Zoom class is beginning to turn their cameras off. Keeping your cameras on whenever possible is so essential in Zoom classes. This helps the teacher gauge engagement and enables children to fully participate in all of our interactive games and movement activities. Active participation enhances the learning experience and accelerates language acquisition.
Expedition Spanish live homeschool classes are so popular because of how much effort we put into keep children excited about learning Spanish! A big part of this is teaching about amazing Spanish-speaking places and cultures around the world for students to get excited about their own future Spanish adventures! Learning a language involves more than just vocabulary and grammar and you and your children can have a lot of fun exploring the rich diversity of Spanish-speaking cultures together. There are so many rich ways to incorporate this into your homeschool lessons, such as exploring traditional foods, music, art, and history! This not only enhances language learning but also promotes cultural understanding and appreciation.
Want to really go above and beyond for your children? Seek out opportunities within your community to practice Spanish and to meet and engage with Spanish speakers! Try to find ways to connect with local Spanish-speaking communities, participate in language exchanges, or volunteer to support Spanish-speaking immigrant communities in your area. Real-world interactions reinforce language skills and provide valuable cultural experiences and understanding.
