Language Programs for Children

COVID-19 Summer Camp Update
Dear parents,
We want to let you know that the Language Kids World staff has been thinking about your children and your family during these difficult times. Most of us at Language Kids World are mothers and fathers as well, and we understand how stressful this situation is for your family and your children. We want to let you know that we are with you on this. 
The safety of our students, families and staff always comes first. Although there is nothing we would like more than to spend this summer with your children at camp, and after much consideration and the continuing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 crisis, we have decided to cancel this year’s summer programs. We are so lucky to have so many children participate in our programs year after year, and we had to make this decision with a heavy heart. We have been providing camps in the Houston area for many years, and we never imagined we would have to close one of our summer programs.
But please know that we will be back in 2021, better and stronger than ever. We are giving refunds to parents who have already registered for camp, plus a 10% credit toward next year’s camp. 
We look forward to another amazing summer next year, and we can’t wait to have your child at camp with us!
The Language Kids World Team

Virtual Spanish & French Summer Camps & Classes

This summer, your child can learn Spanish and French from home with our virtual programs!

We will offer virtual Spanish and French summer programs for preschool and elementary school students this summer from June 1 to August 14, 2020.

In the past 8 years, we have helped thousands of children become culturally-aware campers excited about learning another language. Our virtual programs incorporate fun hands-on activities, art projects, interactive games, music and play. 

The focus of our programs is to develop conversational skills. Children will play their way to becoming fluent through vocabulary acquisition, understanding sentence structures, and getting to use what they are learning in a meaningful way. 

Both summer camps and classes are provided via Zoom, and the teacher and students can see, hear and interact with each other. A maximum of 8 students per class.

Virtual Spanish and French Summer Camps

We offer a different context-rich thematic unit each week that allows campers to experience the language in different settings and gives them something new to learn and to look forward to.

Campers will meet for 1 hour and a half each day, and will have projects and activities to do at home to bring to camp the next day. All the crafts require basic supplies. These camps are designed for campers ages 5-10.

Virtual Spanish Classes

We offer virtual Spanish classes for children ages 3-5 (preschool), ages 5-10 (elementary school) and intermediate level (children that are heritage learners or have vast previous experience with the language).

WE are all about

One World, Many Cultures

We teach language by teaching students other disciplines and topics, using language as a tool for learning, not the end of learning itself. This helps students use language to develop critical thinking and understand how they can use the language beyond the classroom to achieve fluency and meaningful communication,with an ability to interact with others in the target language with cultural competence and understanding.

Promoting Fluency

Our aim is to help students learn to communicate meaningfully and effectively in the second language in order to function in a variety of real-life situations. We focus on promoting foreign language learning and fluency with the goal of authentic and meaningful communication and the development of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills (depending on the program, age and proficiency level). 

Fun and Innovative

Through music, actions, storytelling and visuals we appeal to the children’s multiple intelligences. Our curriculum and combined methods we use in the classroom are developmentally appropriate for children of all ages. Studies have proven that performing actions fosters better, long-term retention. When children use their bodies to express language, it is more easily retained, which facilitates transferring from listening skills to the other language skills of speaking, reading and writing. Using songs in class along with storytelling helps develop a structure to create cohesive meaning for the vocabulary words

Interactive & Student-Centered

Our student – centered curriculum provides children with the opportunity to participate in interactive activities and games that are culturally relevant and geared to help them build, reinforce and further develop the language and cultural knowledge they are acquiring. All our programs are designed for a play and music-based platform, and all the activities are focused on the children’s learning. Our curriculum is designed to allow for active learning. Children have direct hands-on learning experiences through the use of multiple manipulative materials and games.
