Houston has close socioeconomic and geographical ties to Latin America. Almost 1/3 of Houston’s population is Spanish-speaking, and Spanish is the second most used language in the United States.
Learning Spanish at a young age helps build a strong linguistic core and broadens cultural horizons. History, cuisine, music, and art dovetail throughout the diverse countries that embrace Spanish as their native tongue. Hundreds of words are the same in both English and Spanish. Consequently, many English-speaking children have a great aptitude for Spanish and become proficient at a young age.
- Living in Houston provides ways to practice Spanish daily.
- Spanish is the 4th most spoken language in the world! It is the official language of 21 countries and is spoken by over 400 million people.
- Spanish is an asset in the business world as the US counts many Latin countries as trading partners.
- By the year 2050, there will be 100 million Spanish speakers living in the US.
- Hispanic culture is diverse, and speaking the language broadens the horizons for travel and living abroad.
“Language is a city to the building of which every human being has brought a stone."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Parent & Student Testimonials
“We are very happy with LIPP. The staff is very caring and loving and our 2-year-old son loves going to school. He's learning a lot and bringing home many projects that they do at school. We were worried initially about it being a full immersion school and his language still developing. But he's doing great, learning, and interacting in a good environment.” - Eldho Kuriakose
