Spanish for Children and Teens

Children and Teenager Program

WAYRA has a special program for children and teenagers. Depending on the age of the child, classes are a combination of educational field trips and classroom instruction using many visual and manual aids. It is recommended to make reservations for children's classes at least 8 weeks before classes begin.

The rates are the same as for the adults.

The children's program is created for children that can read and write up to 12 years old. We do not accept children under the age of 15 who are traveling alone. Any teenagers 16-18 wishing to attend our programs without their parents or other adult supervision should be mature enough to be self-sufficient and responsible for their own decision-making.

For parents traveling with children that do not attend school, baby sitters are available upon request. We can organize a nanny to take care of the children while the parents are taking classes. In some cases, the nanny may be a member of the host family. The nanny can take the children to the beach, children's park, or for a walk close to the school. Most of our nannies only speak Spanish. Prices for nannies are available upon request.
