We deliver highly engaging Spanish, French and Mandarin classes and language immersion summer camps to children in a lively, encouraging learning environment.
Our dynamic classes incorporate music, dance, games, storytelling and more to keep kids immersed and engaged in their target language. With our experienced and fluent teachers, children follow the adventures of “Cosmo & Friends,” our multicultural cast of characters who appear in workbooks, songs, and other learning materials. Students learn through a series of “adventures” that mimic the ones the characters embark upon.
Spanish is our most requested language, offered at all of our locations. Parents frequently tell us they feel that Spanish offers practical and cultural relevance for their children.
We teach French using a very similar teaching approach, focusing heavily on accent for its trickier pronunciation elements. Our French enrichment program is offered at several of our locations. Please ask your Center Director for more information.
We are excited to offer a Mandarin program at a number of our school locations. We teach Mandarin through music, interactive lessons, and games to keep the children engaged throughout the class.
Our Research-Based Teaching Methods are Successful
Total Physical Response (TPR) exposes children to the target language and offers them a variety of ways to respond before actually speaking it – to mimic the way children naturally learn languages.
The Rassias Method exposes children to new languages through dramatic communication full of emotion and feeling – the surest way to ensure that they retain what they learn.
The Multiple Intelligences Theory suggests that learners can effectively acquire new information in a variety of ways, through musical, verbal, tactile, visual and other means.
