The renowned Kallpachay Spanish Immersion Program is coming to Mariposa! Kallpachay instructors teach through a full immersion approach which means that they do not speak English in the classroom. Students learn through participation and puzzle solving as they follow along as their teacher guides them along with singing, gesturing, and showing colorful illustrations. By playing games and engaging in a variety of new activities each class, students gradually progress in memory recall skills and gain confidence.
Additionally, classes place a high emphasis on speech production. We know this is a key factor in language acquisition so it is built into the curriculum! Instructors bring fun and imaginative themes to life while incorporating speaking practice into class routines from day one. Students are encouraged to speak (not pressured) as part of the positive learning environment that we create by factoring in all personality types. Lessons are geared to the appropriate developmental levels of students and small class sizes allow instructors to work with different levels of students by tailoring their interactions and expectations.
