Isabella & Ferdinand Spanish Language Adventures™ is a Spanish language learning program for children based in Washington, D.C. Our mission is for children to become both linguistically and culturally fluent in the Spanish language. We teach our students the best, most proper standard of Spanish they can learn, as well as making sure that they gain a solid understanding of the art, literature and culture of Spain and Latin America. Our philosophy is that by achieving greater comprehension of the Spanish-speaking world, children are ultimately able to use their Spanish in a more effective way.
Isabella & Ferdinand offers classes for first-time learners of Spanish as well as bilingual children. All of our classes are taught in an immersion environment exclusively by qualified, native Spanish-speaking teachers. Our innovative Isabella & Ferdinand Learning Gems™ system and core curriculum are based upon the standards of the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and the Instituto Cervantes in Madrid. Children are encouraged to become conversational as soon as possible, learn correct pronunciation and a wide array of vocabulary and phrases in Spanish. They learn about Cervantes, Picasso, Velázquez and many other great figures of the Spanish-speaking world. Art and music, reading and writing are important elements of all of our classes. Our dual emphasis on linguistic excellence and cultural understanding results in an engaging, best-in-class Spanish language program for children.
