Spanish Program Testimonials

GAIA’s Spanish program has been great for our school. Our K2 and K3 students learned a lot from their experienced teacher, and enrollment in our Spanish-tracked P1 class doubled in a year. I’ve been especially impressed by their ability to make the professional Salamanca International Spanish Program (SISC) fit our school and our students. – Rosaryhill School
