“Because she [my daughter] is receiving instruction from native speakers, her pronunciation is very good and fluid. I especially noticed this on a recent family vacation to the Caribbean. Although timid, she summoned the courage to ask for things in Spanish which was great to see. Much of the research on acquiring a second language supports the benefits to a child’s cognitive development when the child is exposed and taught at a young age. My hope is that whether she continues toward a path of fluency or not, stimulating this area of curiosity and development will help plant a seed that will serve her well in her future endeavors. I am happy that my daughter is receiving instruction through this program and hope it will continue to grow and expand in the years ahead.”
