Why learn another language?

"A different language is a different vision of life." - Federico Fellini, Italian film director

You have probably heard the many reasons that it is good to learn another language, but the quote from this acclaimed film director is one of the best. When your child learns another language, their life is enriched and opportunities present themselves that would not be possible without this additional skill. Kids who come to Lango classes learn a new languageespecially if they stick with their classes for a year or more.They also make developmental strides that will prepare them to succeed in school, gain an appreciation for other cultures and make new friends in the classroom -- plus they have a great time in the process!

Does it work?

Definitely! In fact, studies have consistently shown that the best time to begin learning a second language is when a child is learning his first. During childhood a learning window opens, allowing children to learn a language naturally and easily. The younger the learner, the more likely they are to acquire the language with an authentic accent and retain vocabulary and grammatical patterns over time. Research has demonstrated that children who learn a language at an early age are more likely to:

  • Develop native pronunciation
  • Express themselves creatively in both their first and second language
  • Perform strongly in school and on standardized tests
  • Understand other cultures and abstract ways of thinking
  • Become bilingual or multilingual, offering global career opportunities down the line

How much will my child learn?

Of course, the speed with which a child learns a language depends on their amount of exposure to native speakers. With native speaking teachers leading Lango classes, your child will begin to understand words, then phrases, then sentences. Your child will also begin to answer simple questions, speak in short phrases and then engage in simple conversation - and be on her way to becoming multi-lingual. We recommend at least attending class twice weekly for optimal language retention.
