Re: Spanish/English camp for 6-year-old
Allow me to recommend Camp Lango, our Spanish immersion day camp,
to be held at Glenview Elementary in Oakland the weeks of July 20
and 27 and August 3. You're welcome to enroll for half-days, full
days or extended care, and we're also happy to accept
partial-week enrollments, as you describe here. Please visit

Re: After-school Spanish for a 5-year-old?
My almost 5 year old son is finishing up his second week at Camp Lango, a
immersion camp. I was nervous about sending my son to something new and
director, Michael Fee, answered all my questions and was very reassuring.

Does anyone have information about Lango Kids?
We are looking at a Spanish program for our school. It seems that
Lango is best suited for grades K-2 - Is that correct? For schools offering
Lango Kids what do you do with kids in grades 3-5?
Does Lango Kids use Total Physical Response method for teaching
Are you happy with the program? Is the cost per child a
Lango Kids is good if your child has NO exposure to Spanish
prior to taking the course. This was a preschool program that
was expanded to the elementary school level using the ideas for
teaching preschoolers. In my opinion, the teachers are good, but
the language instruction is the lowest level for an elementary
school. It was good for my friend's kindergarten son because he
did not have exposure to Spanish in pre-school. We now send my
son to small group classes with the Spanish teacher at Redwood
Day School. They have an EXCELLENT Spanish program. You also may

I'm considering the LANGO summer day camp (Spanish) for my 8 & 5 year olds who
haven't had much formal language training. Any feedback on this camp? How is the
curriculum, safety, quality of the staff, do kids have fun there? Thanks!

My five-year-old is in the LANGO after-school program -- and I would imagine
camp would be similar: he hasn't had any language training either and it
matter at all. For this age the program consists in a lot of games and
It's an immersion program so they keep the kids (who don't understand a word
first) engaged with this type of thing. I think it's pretty good. He doesn't
LOVE it, but
I'm sure this is because he doesn't know what they're saying! (A good thing in
view, btw; I like the idea of immersion and think this is the only way to go.)
doesn't hate it either, and he's there with his friends, having fun, and
some language connection thing is happening in his brain, now, when it counts.
Has anyone checked out the Lango Spanish classes for preschoolers offered
at the Julia Morgan? I'm curious about the quality and style of
instruction and whether you felt they were worthwhile, and if so, why?
We just love our Lango class - we go to danspace for ours since my son is under 3. He has
picked up so much - neither my husband or myself speak Spanish so this has been a lot of fun
for all of us. His teacher is amazing, she loves the kids and is such a great instructor. I
love it when my son says ''how do you say (insert just about anything!)in Spanish''
I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old that have been going to Lango for a month. They both
seem to really enjoy it. The 2 year old class is parent participation and has a lot of music
and play. The 4 year old class has more games and art, and my son now knows his colors, some
animals, a few other words in Spanish. Both the teachers are great and really enthusiastic.
I wish it was a little closer to my house.
