¡HOLA! Club Español! Linguajoy

Did you know that Spanish is the native language to more than 400 million people making it second only to Mandarin Chinese? With its similarity to other Romance languages (such as French, Italian, Portuguese), it is an excellent starting point in languages. Spanish is easy to adopt as words are pronounced just as they are written.

At Linguajoy Club Español students continue to learn new vocabulary, all the more versatile sentence structures and useful expressions with the aid of games, music, arts, craft, and movement.
