The University Language Academy for Children is an initiative of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese in the School of Literatures, Cultures & Linguistics from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
We offer a quality after-school second language program in Spanish that serves children from the Champaign-Urbana community. We also offer summer camps.
The program promotes early second language acquisition by children who want to learn Spanish and do not come from Spanish-speaking families, as well as language maintenance for children of Spanish-speaking families. Children will have the opportunity to learn the language and gain knowledge of the rich cultural traditions of the Spanish-speaking world.
