Quest Montessori Spanish
In the Language Program, Spanish is the “target” language which provides the core of second-language instruction at Quest. Spanish language is introduced in it’s cultural context; in the classroom with the Spanish instructor who works closely with the Montessori directors and directresses to make meaningful connections for the children between the regular curriculum and the Spanish work. The intent of the program is exposure to language and culture as a means for “communicative competence”.
The basis of Spanish instruction is the three-period lesson (listening, understanding/comprehending, and expressing). The Spanish-language study is intended to be a bridge to the child’s multi-cultural perspective and understanding.
Spanish language skills instruction are done by qualified native speaking instructors.
