Las Li­las Malaysia

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

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.
