Toddler-and-Parent Classes (ages 1-3)
Children in this class don't sit still for long! Accompanied by parents or caregivers, these young "students" (ages 1 1/2 to 3 years) start learning a new language through a variety of activities designed to engage their minds and bodies. Students become great friends with Cosmo the Bulldog, participating in his crazy adventures right alongside him and his friends, the Lango Kids. Music and movement form the foundation for the classes, as the children sing simple, rhythmic songs and dance, run, spin and jump around the room! Meanwhile, our teachers work with the accompanying adults, teaching them age-appropriate games and activities so that they can reinforce learning at home. These "play classes" are great for parents and caregivers who want to learn a new language alongside their children!
Preschoolers' Classes (ages 3-5)
Fun and play form the foundation for our preschoolers foreign language classes. Within two or three classes, kids ages 3-5 learn key phrases in their new language through simple, repeated songs and chants. Meanwhile, they become familiar with more complex aspects of the language by engaging in "adventures," tactile and movement-based games that require them to solve simple problems - in their new language, of course! These adventures, starring the Lango Kids, our multicultural cast of characters, take students to other lands and cultures to ensure that their language instruction is combined with cultural exposure. Preschooler foreign language classes are great for kids who are enrolled in preschool, but have not yet started kindergarten.
Elementary Classes (ages 6-11)
Our early elementary students learn their new languages through adventures, activities that require increasing levels of engagement and understanding over time, and that reward kids with a feeling of accomplishment. A simple literacy component ensures that these students not only listen, speak, sing and play in their new language, but read and write as well. Lango is proud to partner with dozens of elementary schools nationwide to provide convenient classes to their students.
