Considering his childhood heroes were Zorro and The Cisco Kid, it's not hard to believe that Barry Carstetter aced high school Spanish. He even became president of his school's Spanish Club. As his senior year progressed, however, his classes' textbook-bound style increasingly bothered him. Barry understand that the most effective way to learn Spanish is to immerse oneself in it, so at graduation he tossed off his cap and headed to Mexico. There, and in South Texas, he taught native speakers to read and write. And as his students put pen to paper, Barry's own Spanish skills soared.
This experience, paired with his exposure to a system called Accelerated Learning, encouraged Barry to open Rapid Spanish, where he serves as the primary instructor. Under his wing, no student suffers the boredom or ineffectiveness of a rote education. Instead, the curricula incorporate funny scripts, games, and music, immersing pupils in Spanish while having fun. Rapid Spanish' private lessons, group classes, and corporate training programs cultivate supportive environments in which students are not compared to one another or forced to hold 2nd language comedy roasts.
By the time a child turns 6, his or her brain has already reached 90% of its developmental potential. Froggin Learning Center's teachers use the years leading up to this deadline, helping kids fill their expanding minds with a second language instead of ideas for mud-based desserts. Not only do students absorb the second language better than adults, but the process of learning that language helps develop kids' creativity and intelligence.
Froggin's teaching methodology relies heavily on the work of two renowned child psychologists: Piaget and Gardner. They believed that a positive, stimulating environment, much like chalkboards made of candy bark, keeps children engaged and motivated. With a max of eight children per teacher, each classroom bustles with personal attention, games, music, and interpersonal activities designed to organically incorporate English or Spanish into speech.
