Spanish for Kids. What next after Speekee?
Often we are asked by parents whose children have successfully learned all the Spanish language contained within Speekee: what next?
We’re delighted to announce that we have identified a Spanish program to fit.
Introducing Asilah Spanish: Spanish Online for teenagers 11-16 years
The student will get access to the online campus with personal login-codes.
The course for teenagers is a course for 9 months, and consists of:
* Modulos (3 Modulos = 1 level)
* Unidades (3 Unidades = 1 Modulo)
* Lecciones (4 lecciones = 1 Unidad)
The student needs to study 2 lecciones (lessons) each month, and makes an appointment with the teacher after finishing each lección for evaluation with the Spanish teacher in Spain (ca. 30 minutes). During the evaluation the teacher will help the student with pronunciation. After the online evaluation the student will receive feedback by email, a grade and, if necessary, advice to study extra materials.
The student will also be guided offline; will have to send in written assignments, do small exams and send in podcasts. Tools available in the campus: forum, library, chat and an online calendar to schedule the appointments with the teacher.
Within the campus we have availability of media to communicate with the students (similar to Skype). The teacher is able to share his screen with the student, and evaluate the student’s knowledge of the lesson studied using texts, videos and and photos.
The courses are put together according to the guidelines of the Instituto Cervantes, and contains levels A1 through B2. Each course of 9 months contains half of a level (A1.1, A1.2, A2.1, A2.2, B1.1 etc.)
Learning the Spanish language this way follows the concept of Flipped Classroom learning. The students studies the content in his or her own time and pace, and then scedules the private online lesson with the teacher. All our teachers speak good English, but will only use it if necessary. We offer a communicative way of learning that enables the student practise speaking skills from the start. Of course there is attention on the other skills as well: reading, writing, and listening. Integrated in the lessons is information about Spanish speaking countries, their cultures and history.
Thank you Sonja!
