Las Lilas Malaysia
Did you know that Spanish is the fourth most spoken language in the world after Mandarin, English and Hindustani? With more than 400 million native speakers from Spain to Latin America, it’s also an official language of the European Union and the Union of South American Nations. With that in mind, parents will be happy to know that the first Spanish language and culture centre based in Singapore, Las Lilas, opened its new centre in Malaysia in April this year.
The school offers two main classes for kids aged three to 12 years-old – the Mother Tongue Programme and Beginners. For older kids, sign them up for the group sessions or semi-private sessions where there are no more than three students in a class. Or opt for a private class if your kid is on the shy side or wants to learn the language more thoroughly.
The programmes offered are accredited by Instituto Cervantes, a non-profit organisation created by the Spanish government to encourage the study and teaching of the language and culture. Besides language classes, the school also organises cultural and holiday workshops related to Spanish. Block A-08-01, Plaza Mont Kiara, 2 Jalan Kiara, KL (03 6411 8697/ laslilasschool.com).
