In this time, when the world is becoming more connected, the knowledge of languages presents a great asset. English is the first world language, followed by Spanish, which is extremely widespread in Europe and in North and South Americas.
Workshops “Through play to language knowledge” are run by Maša Lancner (univ. dipl. prof. span., univ. dipl. japon.) and Mojca Stubelj Ars (univ. dipl. ekolog), both with many experience in the field of teaching foreign languages and work with children. In their workshops, they teach through game, memorizing new words with associations and activities including yoga and dance elements.
The workshops are intended for children between 5 and 8 years and between 10 and 13 years.
