What You'll Get
Although visitors to foreign lands often communicate at a basic level by pantomiming, Americans inevitably give away their tourist status by gesturing with an accent. Pole-vault over language barriers without resorting to charades with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get five one-hour children’s language classes at The Carousel of Languages (a $224 value) on Columbus Avenue.
The Carousel of Languages instructs little ones in Italian, French, Spanish, or Mandarin, with a wide array of weekday class times that make learning convenient, unlike leap-month courses conducted on mountaintops. Students ages 6 months to 12 years brush up on their español, français, and more in the five-child maximum, full-immersion classes, using toys and games to enliven the learning process. The Carousel of Languages boasts of research that suggests foreign-language learning boosts brain development, creative thinking, and mathematical skills, rendering its classes a stepping stone for future educational advancement. Language classes also serve to enrich youngsters’ cultural experiences and augment their vocabularies, thereby undoing Junior’s habit of speaking only in hieroglyphics.
