TessaPrep classes include Hindi and Portuguese immersion classes offered by Tessa’s own team. They take place once a week for 2 hours which we believe is the minimum exposure necessary to give students a meaningful foundation in the language.
The goal of the program is to teach students the language and culture through varied activities including art projects, games, songs, and other cultural activities. Basic elements include listening, speaking and an introduction to writing/spelling/characters.
The program strives to provide a multi-sensory, highly interactive, engaging and fun environment for learning, in a safe and supervised environment. Children will be directly involved in their enjoyment of learning.
Classes are open to children who are not enrolled with Tessa International School during the day, whether they are native speakers or not.
Classes are for children ages 2.5 to 5, and also 6 to 9 in Hindi.
Ages 2.5 to 5:Thursdays 3:30 – 5:30 pm
Ages 6 to 9: Fridays 3:30 – 5:30 pm
Ages 2.5 to 5: Fridays 3:30 – 5:30 pm
