Giles-Sweet Elementary 2019-2020 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.
  • 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.

The Objective

  • 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.
  • There is a maximum of 14 students per class and a minimum of 7.


  • Wednesdays 2:50pm-3:35pm for 23 weeks
