Is the transition to an all-Spanish environment difficult for children?
When children first enroll in the program, the transition to an all-Spanish environment can be challenging even though the activities are fun and children enjoy participating. After the initial novelty wears off, it usually takes 4-8 weeks, depending on the child’s personality and experience for children to learn enough Spanish to feel at home in an all-Spanish environment. During this period children have a great time every day in the Spanish school, but will resist coming to Spanish school. Once they arrive and start participating each day, they enjoy the activities, and at pick-up time they are usually excited to talk about what happened. But then the next day they resist going to Spanish school.
