New to the Neighborhood: Alegría Spanish Institute Offers Summer Immersion Program

The Alegría Spanish Institute is Houston’s premiere center for acquisition of Spanish, and this summer, it includes a Summer Immersion Program.

The Proprietary Language Acquisition Method used at Alegría recognizes that culture and language are inextricably entwined and that both must be understood together. Therefore, it exposes students to the art and culture of the Americas and Spain as a critical tool for learning the Spanish language. This approach helps accelerate learning and will help students excel academically, socially and professionally.

The Alegría Spanish Institute is operated by local professionals who understand Spanish and have taught it in the Spring Branch Independent School District. As a result, the Alegría program greatly targets the problems local students deal with in their academic Spanish instruction. The program, amongst other aspects, covers the REALIDADES Spanish Curriculum used at Spring Branch ISD. It also helps students prepare for important semester tests, including Credit by Exam (CBE). The program and the facilities are designed to appeal to students aged from 5 to 18.

Alegría is offering a Summer Immersion Program for children ages of 5 to 10. This experience brings the child into an intensive Spanish instruction and speaking setting that invites learning in a fun yet productive environment.

Classes during the summer will continue to also be offered on weekday afternoons for school-age children and teenagers. Spanish conversation classes are offered week day mornings and on weekends for adults.
