When teaching a second language, Language Tree makes a crucial distinction between repetition and monotony. Repetition is necessary to help students remember key words and ideas, but monotony takes all the joy out of learning. To that end, Language Tree's educational DVDs and online language courses engage kids with songs, videos, and games that impart language skills, making for thrilling yet thorough lessons. Native-speaking characters guide the exercises in each chosen language, whether it's Spanish, German, Chinese, or Atlantean Bubble-Breathing.
These lessons all rely on the company's trademarked Multi-Cognition Approach: a learning technique based on repetition, active thinking, and information clustering to enhance retention of new vocabulary. Language Tree's program has been recognized by the Parents’ Choice Foundation, School Library Journal, and the Dove Foundation.
