What is Lango?
Lango was established on the belief that every American child should learn a second language. Frustrated by the lack of options to teach our own kids another language (and having met many other families with the same concern), we set out to create a program that would teach kids new languages in a way that kids will love. New to Pittsburgh but headquartered in San Francisco, Lango teaches children ages 1-11 new languages in full immersion classes through culturally based music, art, games, stories and movement.

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.

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. She 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.
