Academia De Español (ADE) offers another extra-curricular activity for your students – learning Spanish.
It is by far easier for children under the age of 15 to learn a new language in comparison to adults. More importantly, it helps them gain a different perspective as they get a chance to glimpse into a whole new world, learn about a distinctive culture; by extension, further connect with their own culture and thus become cosmopolitan individuals. In today’s time, it is deemed important to have multicultural ideologies and hence one should not only be aware of the Indian culture but also of a distinctive one and at the same time, learn to appreciate the similarities and the differences.
ADE also raves about its teaching faculty who have all been in-house students at some point and completed their Teacher Training Programs with excellence. Our teachers are often praised for being able to teach even the most complex grammar rules with ease and enriching students with cultural anecdotes that inspire them to learn even more about the language.
