Learning Spanish from the comfort of home has never been easier! We are excited to offer  Mariposas en Casa – our digital Spanish program! Three options build the foundation for this side of Mariposas Spanish School: on-demand classes, Zoom group classes, and Zoom one-on-one classes.

Why choose Mariposas Spanish?

Mariposas Spanish School has been teaching children Spanish since 1999. Our unique curriculum has shown that children learn a new language best when they’re engaged by their maestra (teacher) in a variety of ways. Music, art, science, literature, and the Total Physical Response (TPR) method make up the fabric of our Montessori-based curriculum. Students are not only acquiring Spanish language skills but are learning about other cultures and are gaining an understanding of other people.
