Learn more about what 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.
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.
