Another thing is that they are very lively and clever; that also helps.
I do believe that children need a positive atmosphere to learn so they must be motivated, have fun, and be allowed to be themselves.
It would be great if Jack's interest in Spanish language and culture would continue after the exams are over. This is probably one of the most important points of learning other languages; that you get to know and understand better other cultures, widening at the same time your views of the world and of society.
All the best!
