Babies are born with the potential to speak any language!

At just six months old, infants are capable of distinguishing sounds from any language. By 12 months old, children have already started to focus on the sounds of their primary language and by two and three years old, have begun to recognize speech patterns.

The earlier a language is introduced, the easier a child can identify its unique sounds. The ability to identify phonetic pronunciations is most acute before age three and begins to diminish the older we get. A child’s brain is developmentally prepared to learn language at this early age and prompt exposure can improve fluency and minimize or even eliminate speaking with an accent.

Allow us to introduce you to our owners, Luis and Angela Gonzalez. Luis and Angela have three young children whom they teach Spanish and English. While traveling to Mexico last year to visit family, they discovered that they needed to do more to encourage fluency for their little ones. While researching Spanish classes available in Lincoln, they found that the type of learning environment they were looking for did not exist and so they set out to create it.

Luis is a native Spanish speaker and a successful entrepreneur who will bring extensive business acumen to management of the school.

Angela will serve as director of Aventuras. She is passionate about doing her part to make the world a welcoming and united place and envisions Aventuras as a step in that direction. Angela brings a wealth of education and experience which will aid in the administration of our program. She has a BA in International Studies and French from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and is completing an MA in Critical and Creative Thinking from the University of Nebraska – Omaha with a concentration in International Migration, Development and Citizenship. She has completed coursework in Child, Youth and Family Studies including International Family Studies. Angela spent two years instructing English language learners. She spent four years as a Project Coordinator administering grant funded non-profit programs for new Americans and has spent the last six years as a Research Administrator at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
