Savoir Faire Language Institute is your child’s opportunity to become a fluent speaker of a foreign language.
European children begin learning foreign languages in preschool. They do not miraculously become fluent from a few foreign language classes in high school. It takes many years of exposure and study, even in Europe! The foundation is set during childhood where learning a foreign language and acquiring a flawless accent is like play �? quite effortless. Later, children begin the study of how the language operates through grammar.
Following this model, Savoir Faire has developed a comprehensive and articulate foreign language school that powerfully leads your child, step by step, to fluency and literacy in Spanish, French, Chinese, Japanese, German or Italian.
Our Preschool & Beginner classes are perfect for English speaking students who are just starting out. Your child can join these beginning classes for their first exposure, develop a basic foundation and have a really enjoyable foreign language experience. If they decide not to continue, they are only richer for the time spent.
Our Preschool & Beginner solidly prepares your child for moving into the next levels. At the next level, her oral language skills will also become writing skills. In Bridges 2, your child’s one-word responses will grow to become short sentences. Her 100-word vocabulary becomes 300 words and she has begun one of the most valuable journeys of her lifetime.
Our Bridges (1 to 4) and Literacy classes are perfect for your children.
.These classes are conducted entirely in the foreign language and develop literacy skills in tandem with speaking skills. Your kids can skip our beginning levels and jump in at any of the higher levels fulfill your desire that your children fluently read and write your native language.
