FAQs about Lelu
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, all wonderful subjects that kids are endlessly curious about!
Our program is designed for elementary school aged children (6-10 years old), so our projects and themes are best suited for this age group. Of course, younger kids can greatly benefit from the content, but they do need more parent support for the projects. We have many families with older children, too, as the content has loads of depth and there is always an opportunity for everyone to learn mucho!
Our Lelu Max and Lelu Connect 1-on-1 programs typically begin the first week of the month. There are limited spots available, and we can sell out, so don't wait to sign up. The best time to sign up is by the 20th of each month for inclusion in the following month. For example, sign up by July 20th to join us for our August theme’s programs.
Sign up for our Lelu Lite kit anytime, as it is sent all throughout the month! For example, if you sign up anytime during July, you will receive our July theme’s kit.
Lelu is so much more than your standard Spanish curricula/class—it’s a full Spanish program. Our Lelu Max kit and digital portal immerse you in a fun STEAM theme in Spanish for the entire month. In the kit, you’ll receive all you need to do 2-3 Spanish + STEAM Mega Proyectos (core projects) related to that theme and other daily activities/proyectos that extend the learning from the 2-3 Mega Proyectos. Each Mega Proyecto is accompanied with instruction videos via our digital portal!
Lelu Max also consists of live virtual events, including Builder Sessions, an opportunity for your kids to participate in weekly 1-hour long Zoom sessions where we build the Mega Proyectos juntos, en español! This is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the community and have kids engage in the proyectos while they see other children like them using Spanish.
With the Lelu Connect 1-on-1 tutoring, every week your kids will have a 30-minute Zoom class with a native Spanish speaker. This special time provides your kids individualized attention and support.
Our Lelu Lite kit is perfect for bilingual families who want to enrich their child’s Spanish + STEAM education but don’t have a lot of time. You can do your Lelu Lite Mega Proyecto on your own schedule!
Regardless of your plan type, Lelu is an amazing program with many touch points that make Spanish come alive for your family!
There are different levels of time commitment based on the program.
Lelu Lite: Low time commitment. This is the best way to make sure to keep your Spanish alive despite a busy schedule! (~30-40 min per month)
Lelu Connect 1-on-1: Medium time commitment. Four 30-min personalized Spanish tutoring sessions each week via Zoom. (2h per month)
Lelu Max: High time commitment. Spanish + STEAM kit with at least 75 mins worth of activities for each week + access to 2-3 distinct hour long Builder Sessions per month.
For the most complete experience, you can combine Lelu Max and Lelu Connect 1-on-1. That adds up to ~ 150 minutes of Spanish per week or 10 hours of Spanish per month!!! Our programs are set up intentionally as research shows us that to acquire a language you need to:
1) find a use for it in your life (starts with the kits),
2) use it with someone (the tutor and with peers)
3) enjoy it (all of the above)!
Bilingualism is a gift for life, and we are passionate about helping your kids start or enrich their bilingualism journey in the best ways!
You know this answer better than we do! Our boxes are certainly designed to drive family engagement with the language so, with parent help, most of the activities will have various access points for kids at different levels or ages. That said, if there is a big age difference between your children, or if they tend to prefer doing things independently, we recommend signing them up separately or adding a sibling pack.
Tutoring can definitely be done with multiple siblings, but we recommend keeping the sessions to 3 kids or less.
Yes! Each month will be organized around a fun and engaging Spanish + STEAM theme. Thematic learning allows families to dive deep into topics kids love and create special memories for the best language retention.
Examples of themes include:
• Expedición Polar | Polar Expedition
• El Idioma de las Computadoras | The Language of Computers
• ¡Seamos Arquitectos! | Let's be Architects!
Absolutely! There is always more to learn when it comes to languages. No matter their starting point, we're confident your child will learn A LOT with Lelu!
No, only immediate family members may share a registration. If you are in a pod, each family in the pod must register independently.
