IW Spanish School News

This month IW Languages was present at the event Es Tu Día  Study Buenos Aires organizes so that students from every part of the world that come to Buenos Aires can meet and have a great time. It took place at the Campo Argentino de Polo in Palermo. We shared mate, and there was a tango and milonga show among other games.  And students played a game known as Sapo, where you need throw 5 special coins. Each competitor aims at a wooden table with several holes and a toad on its top. It was a lot of fun!

 Children learn Spanish at IW

  

These last three weeks, a family came to IW and entrusted us with their three children. They had Spanish lessons one-on-one. Type of course: Spanish immersion and Argentinean culture, with the developing of their conversational Spanish and their understanding of Spanish grammar as a must.

  

When they first arrived, we started by learning about the children's preferences: Natalie (12) is very interested in environmental issues and animals, Louis (10) is interested in movies and their making as well as in sports; and Tristan (9) loves books and adventures.

As their program was based on one-on-one Spanish lessons, we had the opportunity to focus on each child in particular.

 

We know that along these three weeks they have learned a lot. We have also learned a lot from them.
