Little Lions Learn, a fully immersive online Spanish class, has opened a new window to the world of learning a new language—anywhere, anytime—from the convenience of your own home.
The class is for children ages 5 to 16 and allows students to get the feel of learning a new language with the interaction of live teachers instructing Spanish from all over the world. This includes students learning how to read, write and speak.
Khara Sandoval, CEO of Little Lions Learn, along with her partner Silvia Blackledge, officially launched the learning program on August 1, 2019, just before the school year began.
Sandoval said she wanted to become a teacher to support others and has been doing it for more than 10 years.
“I have always been passionate about language acquisition and have always seen value in learning a second language,” she said.
With her passion leading the way Sandoval and her partner began working on launching the online program a goal that took the pair 5 months.
Sandoval said when she was looking for learning apps she noticed conversation skills were lacking, as she was looking for ways her kids can learn a second language.
Little Lions Learn has ten different teachers scattered around the country, including one teacher who is teaching Spanish in Spain since the start of school.
Bernabé Francisco Rodriguez has been teaching Spanish for over 20 years, where he shares his passion for getting to know people from all over the world.
“Little Lions Learn is a brilliant idea – with a well-defined objective,” he said.
Little Lions Learn hopes to create a fun and engaging learning environment for Spanish skills and see students becoming assertive in the way you communicate a second language. The fully immersive program allows instructors to speak in a directed way to bring the success of learning that language.
Rodriguez also said, “Professional social networks bet on Spanish as a professional asset because bilingualism is a great advantage for the economy and even for our social environment.”
The online program also offers free study tools connected to the curriculum that allows students to achieve an engaging learning environment. This includes flashcards and media file books created digitally. Little Lions Learn also hopes to open doors for an English side by sharing it with the rest of the world.
