The Spanish Language Camp takes place on the beautiful Manhattan College campus in New York City. Campers can access Manhattan College’s vast resources, including our classrooms, computer labs, and library.
Campers are placed by age, not target language proficiency. We will not test campers’ language proficiencies before the camp. Classes will be taught at an elementary to low-intermediate level appropriate for the age group. Each two-week session will focus on different topics, so campers who stay for multiple sessions will learn in various areas.
Spanish is extremely valuable for children to learn, as it is a world language. Our language program will utilize interactive, communicative, and fun pedagogy to increase their Spanish skills, emphasizing speaking fluency and vocabulary acquisition.
Campers learn, and they have fun doing it. They learn language through class lessons and daily activities. Most of the day is spent improving, supporting, and increasing language skills and proficiency in interactive, communicative practice.
