La Jolie Ronde

Award winning Programme

We are delighted to announce we are opening new Spanish courses in Merseyside. Our classes work using the La Jolie Ronde methodology which is the best programme for early language learning and has been used in schools throughout the UK and Ireland for over 30 years.
With these classes the children will benefit from a progressive and structured Spanish programme, giving them confidence and over time will start to speak, listen, write and read independently.  

La Jolie Ronde programmes are accessible to join at any point during the term because it works with repetition of phrases and key vocabulary.

Our classes are fun and active where children learn through playing, singing and dancing, that's why children love the sessions online and face to face.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in your child having the benefits of learning Spanish.
