Raleigh, North Carolina (PressExposure) April 30, 2011 -- Learning Spanish is getting a whole lot easier, now that Spanish for Fun! has established itself as one of the premier Spanish learning institutes in the country. Based out of Raleigh and with a second school in Cary, North Carolina, the school's success has enabled it to expand. Spanish For Fun! is currently seeking out a third location in the Wake Forest area, and looks to set up a franchise in Greensboro in 2012.
The preschool curriculum offers the development of the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and linguistic areas for children ages two months to five years old in a complete Spanish immersion setting. Spanish lessons are also available for children and teens ages three to 16.
Founded in 2000 by Gabriela Lowry, a Peruvian native with a Bachelors Degree in Education and post-graduate classes in Early Childhood Education, Spanish for Fun! engulfs pre-school kids in a Spanish language environment. The highly personalized curriculum encourages the children to be responsible, critical, and open for an intercultural dialogue while remaining conscious of their own cultural identity. It is Spanish for Fun!'s goal to provide a support system that encourages children to develop all the skills necessary to live and work in today's global atmosphere.
Spanish for Fun! wants to give everyone the same opportunity to learn and participate in all cultures. With that in mind, new "English for Fun!" schools are being set up to open in third world countries.
"We are really excited for the future of Spanish For Fun!, Inc. and this exciting new endeavor," said Lowry. "We want kids here to learn Spanish, and we want kids in other countries to learn English.... it's our way of giving back. Each school would have its "sister" school that they would correspond with in each others' language via writing, drawings, and video conferencing."
