Spanish program




Why Spanish?

It is important for young kids to learn a second language. As research shows, this will help them with problem-solving, critical thinking, and listening skills. It also helps improve memory and focus in children. Furthermore, kids who learn a second language, develop new areas of the brain, and do better at school!

In the world we live in, being bilingual will set your child apart in the increasingly competitive and demanding academic and job markets.

Twenty countries in the world have Spanish as their official language; it is the third most spoken language in the world with over 460 million native speakers. Additionally, Mexico is the USA’s third largest trading partner with over $557 billion dollars traded annually.

Learning Spanish will give your child the opportunity to understand the cultural nuances of an international environment, enabling them for better opportunities when they are older.

About Me

Mrs. Victoria Miranda Martinez-Gama was born and raised in Mexico City, attended boarding school in Kells, County Meath, Ireland. Holds a Teacher’s Examination Grade from Intituto Mexicano a language school affiliated with Cambridge University which gave her the tools to teach native-English speakers.  She graduated from the Jesuit University of Mexico City in 2013 with a B.A. in Architecture and practiced for three years before moving to New Orleans with her family for her husband to attend graduate school. 

It was through her love of teaching that she came up with EspaÑOLA, a program to teach Spanish in a developmentally appropriate way. 


For Victoria, it is a way to be involved in the community and it enables her to continue doing the thing she loves the most, which is teaching young kids how to understand the Spanish language in a fun and involved way.

In the EspaÑOLA programs, kids not only are immersed in repetition but learn through play and cultural engagement.
