Experts say that kids should begin to learn a foreign language from a young age; the younger, the better. A child is born with the ability to learn any language in the world . The older the child gets, certain windows close in terms of language acquisition, but so long as the child learns the language before age 12 or 13, the child should be able to speak with a native accent.
The kids will learn Spanish while having fun with music, colors, and games! We teach and reinforce the lessons in different ways approaching on that way to the different kind of learners. The students will learn frequently used phrases and sentences in a program where they will not only be able to understand the spoken language, but also will be encouraged to read, write, and speak it! Our goal is to make Spanish fun and easy!
" Mrs. Elsa has done a wonderful work with our 4 year old son. She impressed all of us with her patience and approach with kids. We have been very happy with our experience with LKN Language Academy, we will be recommending to many others".

"I absolutely love everything about
this class and I have learned so much from it and I think you have a way with
kids and were born to teach Spanish. You are such a great teacher you got me so
motivated to keep learning more and more. You've taught me Spanish so well but
that isn't the only thing you've taught me you've taught me kindness and
manners etc. and last but not least you've showed me what a great Spanish
teacher looks like. I highly recommend señora Pansini to anyone who wants to
learn how to speak, write, and/or read Spanish no matter if you have no experience
with Spanish period or you are completely bilingual, you can still learn so
much from señora Pansini. You have such a big heart and you are so kind, loving
and caring for everyone. You are the sweetest teacher I have ever met and
definitely have made a huge impact on my education you are so influential I
think about you every day and admire you so much. You are like a second mom or
an aunt to me I look up to you like a family member and that is probably
because you are a family member to me. I am so glad that I was able to have you
as a Spanish teacher and I'm so sad that I will not be returning next
gracias y te quiero mucho"
Lake Norman Elementary School going into Mount Mourne IB School
As a personal note, I have to add that Kendall was in our Spanish
after school program for 2 years at Lake Norman Elementary School and in the
third year moved to the Level 2 group class of bilingual kids. Her skill to
learn Spanish was outstanding and she continued exceling with her Spanish on
the higher level. She will be attending the IB program at Mount Mourne School
where Spanish is part of the curriculum. I'm going to miss her kindness,
her love for the class. She stole my heart and I'm sure by the time she
graduates high school she will completely bilingual!!
