The Latin American and Hispanic school offers language and literature as well as history and cultural lessons in Spanish for children and teens with Latin American and/ or Hispanic heritage. Although the aim is for the children to develop their Spanish skills, we do take their distinct levels of Spanish into account to make sure language does not become a barrier.
Who Is It For?
We are currently offering lessons for children aged 8 – 11 with Latin American/Hispanic heritage. It is not required for the child to be fluent in Spanish. However, it is recommended that they have a basic level of comprehension. This is because the classes will be running in Spanish. As mentioned above, the distinct levels of Spanish are taken into account while planning the lessons.
Where And What Time?
Classes are online on zoom, meaning that no matter where you are you can join!
Saturdays from 10:30 am – 11:15 am (GMT) term time only.
The first class will be free of charge. Each class after that has a suggested donation of £5 which can be paid on a monthly basis directly to our gofundme page. If for whatever reason you are unable to raise this amount, please get in touch with us to find a solution. We do not want any kids missing out on the opportunity to join because of finances.

Get To Know Us And Our Philosophy.
Being and feeling part of your heritage can be very important to many people around the world. Especially to those who have moved countries and are therefore adapted to a different culture to their own heritage. Children who moved at a young age or were born in a different country to their parent’s heritage may find it especially hard to find a connection with their heritage, which can cause identity issues or general discomfort when socialising with family members. Often this could even rely on a language barrier
With our project, we aim to boost the children and teens self-esteem and allow them to experience and relate to the wondrous Latin American and Hispanic culture. As well as helping them develop new skills in their mother tongue, which can provide them with great advantages in their life.
