World renowned composer and drummer Roberto Rodriguez, a native of Havana, Cuba, brings his rhythmic technique of learning Spanish to WDS! Students use their hands to tap and recite in rhythmic patterns, playing drums and singing songs. These exercises connect to the sounds and phrasing of the language, an approach that makes training wheels of the hands, channeling the experience naturally out of the head into the body. Roberto also applies ear training and music appreciation skills for full immersion by speaking and singing songs in Spanish.

Mundo Niños is playful and conversational. It is based on comprehensible input, which is how we learned our first language so well. Results are immediate with this kinesthetic and enjoyable approach.
