Children Learn New Languages Effortlessly

Learning a new language at any age can be enriching, however teaching young children is our specialty.  Children as young as three years of age have the capacity to pick up a second language.


With our young learners we provide a variety of methods of cognitive learning.

We introduce simple vocabulary and counting through music, cartoons, games, and a variety of interactive activities to make learning engaging and most of all FUN!! : )

TOP 5 Reasons for Children to Learn French:

  • It is a perfect way to bond with your child.

Whether you already speak French or are reminiscent of French learned in High School or you’re starting from scratch, the time spent learning together is a valuable bonding activity.

  • It build’s self-confidence.

Children are absolutely remarkable at learning new things. Their brains are quite literally like little sponges. From a neurological perspective, their brain capacity is immeasurable.

  • It encourages diversity and an appreciation of culture.

As you will learn, French is not exclusive to one part of the world or one culture. We are all more alike than we are different. Being able to communicate with a larger group of people will help broaden their scope of interactions and life experiences. This program provides a real-time example of inclusion and not separation.

  • It broadens opportunities.

It gives them a competitive edge in school and places them on target for higher horizons.

  • It increases cognitive abilities.

Studies have shown that bilingual children have more empathy and higher IQ’s.

Another Benefit of Learning French

It Improves Emotional Health.

Early exposure to learning a second language can improve creative thinking and problem solving skills by nurturing social development.  In this covid era, children and adults can all benefit from that.


Some may be apprehensive to learn French, thinking that other 

languages would be more useful in everyday society. 

In actuality, 

there are more French speakers in the United States than one 

would imagine.

The benefits of learning a 2nd language are far beyond simply learning.  It opens up a whole new world to you.  It ignites the imagination and takes you to real and exotic places.  It broadens the scope of your interactions with people.  It increases your ability to speak properly through phonemic awareness.  It expands your world by inviting other cultures and customs into your realm.


Open the beauty that the language of French possesses. 

 

Open Your World!

One of the most commonly known speakers of French are Parisians.  However, there are far more

French speakers in the world than one would imagine.  In the United States, over 2 million people 

reported being French speakers.  In communities of color, those numbers could be exceedingly more.  

Here are some groups of individuals that are native French speakers, just to name a few:


Haiti

The most populous country in the Carribean are French speakers.


The Republic of Guinea

Although 40 different languages are spoken in this multilingual country, 88% of its population speaks French.


United Kingdom

In the UK, there are over 45 million immigrants who speak French.


Canada

7 million Canadians speak French. Native speakers are typically found in the province of Quebec.


Africa

West Africa holds Senegal, Togo, Côte d'Ivoire the Congo, and many more, that speak French.


Guess what, and they all relocate and travel to the United States.
