While visiting the school, right after a class for kids, I saw parents borrowing books so they could participate in the language learning process at home and connect with their children over stories from their own culture.
The school is filled with colourful toys and learning material. The classes are very active to allow kids to be kids while learning Spanish.
Music and dance are part of the ways the teachers attract and engage with students. A keyboard, two guitars and a couple of other instruments are available for live music along with a good sound system and a collection of records to play during activities.
Music and other forms of art are an important part of Legados methods of teaching Spanish language and Latin American culture.
The environment is very cozy and charming at Legados. The space is decorated by beautiful details, full of colour and culture.
Originally, Legados only offered courses to second generation immigrant kids who were brought to the school by their parents to learn Spanish. For the parents, the purpose was to keep their children in contact with their culture and to learn the language.
Now Legados offers a wider range of courses and workshops for people from different age groups and backgrounds. Learning Spanish is very popular these days (Learn why learning Spnish is popular) and Legados is taking the charge of bringing Spanish language lessons to Montrealers.
Senior citizens are also interested in learning Spanish for things like intergenerational bonding, socializing, traveling, avoiding cognitive aging, etc. Legados prepares fun Spanish classes for seniors with latin american musical rhythms and engaging lessons.
