What we do

We teach Spanish and we do it well!

Ole Kids was born with our own children and is growing with them. We started our journey creating classes for the really little ones as a way to keep their hearing open to the sounds of Spanish – an opportunity that is open during the first 5 years of life, meet like minded parents and make use of the children’s innate ability to pick out grammar rules without having to spell them out. This explains why we prefer teaching through immersion, getting children to do things and have fun.  Nobody can learn under stressful conditions!

We keep that ethos as much as possible with older students and always match learning the language with learning other things; arts and crafts, stories, games, music, science, maths, you name it! The learning is always twofold since languages are not a school subject but a tool for communication. So that is what we do. We aim to encourage children to communicate in Spanish. No rights and wrongs just finding ways to get their point across.

Adults

Being a parent is a good time to learn a language ! Our children are our best example, we can learn from them to be comfortable not understanding for a while and reading body language!
