WKMT partnered with BILINGUALBEATS to provide fabulous Spanish Lessons for Children through Music.
SPANISH LESSONS FOR CHILDREN BY BILINGUALBEATS
In line with honouring our Spanish routes, we have celebrated a partnership with London’s most awarded Spanish language program for children: Bilingual Beats. Bilingual Beats counts with the support of Richard Branson and the Virgin Startup Foundation.
Bilingual Beats doesn’t offer regular and old-fashioned Spanish lessons for children. They specialize in motivating early age students through music! As they teach students who have not yet developed their native language, they need to make use of all the communicative resources at hand to produce quick and everlasting results.
When we learn a language as kids, we do it almost entirely intuitively. This means we get embedded in the flow of the language we inherit from our parents and surroundings. Everything talks to us in that language. The language is embedded with visuals and even emotions.
Two important statements:
* Our emotive memory is the most powerful resource we can use to learn anything.
* Music is the language of emotions.
The opportunity is clear and Bilingual Beats saw it before anyone else! The best way to teach young children how to speak a language is to connect both worlds: the reality of the emotions and the world of facts.
BILINGUALBEATS is directed by an outstanding music professor, Almudena Vieitez. She committed her life understanding of music. Based on her research and supporting the project with her professionalism, she designed this outstanding way of teaching Spanish through music. A format that stimulates students to both, learn a new language at the very early stage of their life, while they are musically stimulated.
WKMT strongly recommends all parents interested in providing their children with solid linguistic and music foundations to get in touch with Bilingual Beats.
