Explorers classes are suitable for ages 1–3, Voyagers classes are suitable for ages 3–5, and Adventurers classes are suitable for ages 6–8. A parent or guardian should be along for the Explorers classes, but Voyagers and Adventurers learn on their own, letting parents run errands or relax. The weekly kids' language courses develop basic vocabulary, grammar, and conversational skills using role-playing exercises, cultural discussions, music, video segments, and readings. Available languages are Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, and Hindi. Click here to view the schedule.
Led by linguistic anthropologist Dr. Jill Bishop, Multilingual Connections’ international staff of instructors immerses students in one of more than a dozen foreign languages, including French, Arabic, Spanish, and Mandarin. The immersive classes are intended to incorporate fun as well as language, with activities ranging from role-playing exercises to music. Before class, students can sip on coffee, tea, or wine while browsing WiFi in the center's cafe.
The instructors at Multilingual Connections delve even further into each language’s respective culture by always making time to converse about specific foods, holidays, and folk traditions. The woman-owned business works to connect pupils—which have included children, athletes, and politicians—to the rest of the world with classes as well as translation and interpretation services in 75 languages.
