Expose your child to a foreign language’s unique sounds, word meanings, and sentence forms while he or she’s still absorbing his first language. Capture a youngster’s prime time to learn a new language – those years that neurolinguist Eric Lenneberg dubbed the early “opportunity years.” Little Lingua classes, camps, and preschools blend Francois Thibaut’s enriching, time-tested method with immersion, top-notch materials, emotional reinforcement, and stimulating activities.
Lingua Kids are toilet trained, ready to separate. and attend class by themselves. This age is often divided into two age groups: 3-5Y and 4-8/9Y, so please check your local schedule.
Students absorb their new language in a happy, boisterous immersion-rich environments filled with exciting, age-appropriate action games, humorous visual aids, original vocabulary-building songs, sentence building stories, enriched play, new friends, and lots and lots of laughter. Because ages 3+ are fully verbal, Children’s classes are vocal and animated. And because that age is fully aware of their peers, they love interacting with each other.
Older groups are ready for complex phrases and full sentences, introduced through Little Lingua stories and dialogues, as well as the Little Lingua songs. Because they’re constantly engaged in rapidly changing activities, class time goes by fast.
Every week students experience a mix of familiar routines and new songs, words, and phrases to help them build French, German, Irish or Spanish fluency. And because youngsters are immersed, they start thinking in their new language, articulating it, and spontaneously constructing simple foreign sentences.
