Bravo for giving your child this
Through life instruction, children can learn to speak Spanish/French/Mandarin/English, the same way they learned their first language by laughing, playing, drawing and eventually conversing. Your child will participate in â€?/span>hands-on learning experiencesâ€?/span>. Every class is designed to guide them towards becoming joyful and independent learners. At the same time, almost effortlessly, your child will acquire a second language.
Why learn a foreign language so early?
â€?/span> New research shows that babiesâ€?/span> brains are primed to learn language long before they utter or understand their first words.
â€?/span> Research also shows that children are most receptive to speaking a new language when they start at an early stage.Â It will enrich your childâ€?/span>s mental development.Â
â€?/span> A two-year-old child has twice as many synapses in the brain as an adult (the brain must use them or lose them).
â€?/span> The brain treats multiple languages as one language. So a person who learns a foreign language in childhood, uses one efficient part of the brain. A person who learns after childhood uses two different parts of the brain. So language learning is not as efficient and much more difficult.
â€?/span> Your child can achieve a native-like pronunciation.
Learning a foreign language has a number of advantages:
â€?/span> The child learns to focus attention and ignore distraction
â€?/span> He will be more creative and better at solving complex problems
â€?/span> Stimulates brain activity
â€?/span> Research suggests that a second language helps enhance English
Â and other academic skills
â€?/span> Improve entrance exam scores (SATs, ACTs, GREs, MCATs and LSATs)
â€?/span> Ability to communicate with more people
â€?/span> Job opportunities (better chance to be hired, to be promotedâ€?/span>)
â€?/span> Opens doors to other cultures: sport, cinema, fashion, art, musicâ€?/span>

No need to worry that your child may get confused over time, they wonâ€™t! Our immersion approach means that every moment in the classroom is also considered for its language-learning opportunities.
You can choose to register your child in any combination of languages in our preschool. From social development to pre-reading and writing, your child will be ready for elementary school in any of the languages they are exposed to with us, including their native tongue, English**.
