SPRING 2020: We are not currently enrolling new children's after-school classes. For Spanish opportunities for your children, please visit our Camps.
Since 2005 Live The Language has had the pleasure of teaching Spanish to BHE children. After a brief sabbatical to further develop our curriculum for children, Live The Language returns to BHE to bring back our popular after-school Spanish Program.
Live the Language Spanish Classes are thoroughly interactive, personalized and relaxed after a long school day. In our classes, we give our students tools to speak and build fluency in a relevant and fun environment. Live The Language authentic and original curriculum fosters high-quality engagement that motivates students to actively speak during class and beyond class. We assign Interactive activities throughout the week, so that students continue to engage in the language outside of the class.
Live The Language classes are available to a maximum of 12 students, so please reserve space now! There will be two native Spanish speaker teachers per class, 6 students per teacher. Contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm availability. If your child has never taken a class or camp with us before, you can try out our program, free of obligation, on Friday, September 7th. If you decide to enroll your child in our program, the class on the 7th will be his/her first class. if you decide our program is not the best match for your child, you won’t owe anything.

At Live the Language classes our main goal throughout the school year is that our students take ownership of what they learn in Spanish and use it in their everyday lives. Our students’ language acquisition doesn’t end when our classes end, but continues to be nurtured at home through the music CDs, recorded readings, recorded oral exercises and written materials students bring home. We encourage parents to learn and/or practice Spanish with their children.
By taking and following Live the Language program, children can speak and communicate in Spanish at a basic level within a year. Our immersion programs are thoroughly interactive and personalized, and our students attain fluency because they are learning and speaking in realistic situations.
Give your children the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Spanish language by registering them in one of our programs. During this time, children practice yoga, have an interactive cooking class, sing popular songs, read stories, play games, perform theatrical skits, have drawing and writing activities in Spanish, and much more! Delicious freshly prepared lunch is included.

At Live the Language's after-school Spanish Program, we strive to create a FUN and RELAXED environment while engaging your child after a long school day. We take a holistic approach to teaching Spanish by motivating our students to live the language through our class activities: salutations, snack time, games, readings, and oral practice.
Live the Language after-school Spanish program takes place at St, Mark’s Episcopal Church In the South Austin neighborhood of Barton Hills, and in our own La Escuelita Mexicana in Cherry Creek, weekday afternoons starting at 3pm. Please contact us for more details.
Please consider giving your children the gift of a second language. We hope Live the Language can help you give this gift to them.
Because our programs are offered to a maximum of 8 students, please reserve your child's space as early as possible.
