Emerson Elementary School
2017 Spanish Program

The Program

  • Classes are taught by caring and enthusiastic teachers from the Cleveland Spanish Academy (CSA).
  • CSA’s mission is to provide an enriching lesson complete with songs, listening exercises and age-appropriate, interactive activities.
  • Students in grades 1-5 can enroll in the program. There is a maximum of 14 students per class and a minimum of 7. Students who attend after school care also welcome.

The Objetive

  • The objective of the program is to immerse kids in the language as much as possible so that kids acquire the language similar to how they learned their first language.
  • The focus is on understanding the spoken language, first attempts at using the language, and reinforcement through exercises in grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure.
  • Kids build on what they learn year-after-year and progress through basics such as colors, numbers, and letters through using various verb tenses and constructing basic phrases as vocabulary becomes more robust.


  • Thursdays 3:15-4:00pm starting January 19th and meeting once a week for 15 weeks.
  • Students are grouped by age and experience depending on enrollment.
  • Program observes school breaks/holidays (snow days/cancellations are made up at the end of the sessions).


  • The cost for the entire program is $120. This fee covers the cost of instruction and materials.
  • Payment is available by check or credit card through the Lakewood Recreation Department.
