Hola, Ni Hao, Bonjour, Ciao! Are you interested in having your child learn a different language? Well we have a treat for you. Smarties, meet the Foreign Language League!
Choose from Spanish, Mandarin, French and Italian. Kids as young as 18 months up to adults will master a new language in a fun and dynamic environment. Your child will learn to think, speak, read and write a second language in a small group, once a week, 45 – minute full immersion class. They use culturally-based music, art, games and stories to teach your child a second language in a fun environment. Children play, sing and dance while learning a second language!
Foreign Language League uses several different methods to effectively teach their classes. Total Physical Response (TPR) exposes children to a new target language using activities that provide a variety of ways to absorb and respond to a language before speaking it. The Rassias Method exposes learners to a new language through dramatic communication and the Multiple Intelligence Theory suggests learners acquire new information in a variety of ways such as musical, verbal, tactile and visual. Their goal is for children and adults to have fun while learning their target language.
Foreign Language League offers classes at several retail locations including Uptown (Myers Park Baptist Church), Midtown (Community Charter Elementary School), Ballantyne (Gymboree Play and Music), Lake Norman (Christian Montessori at Lake Norman), and Gastonia (Dance Productions Studios). They also offer after school enrichment programs at several schools in Charlotte, Weddington and Gastonia. To register for a class, visit their website.
