Language Stars’ FunImmersion teaching method infuses the minds of kids age 1–10 with multilinguistic adroitness in entertaining small-group classes. Native speakers of Spanish, Mandarin, German, French, and Italian conduct lessons entirely in their mother tongues, and games, projects, and songs help kids absorb new parlance without gnawing on foreign-language dictionaries. Tykes age 1–3 focus on building foundational vocabulary in 60-minute parent-accompanied classes centered on a targeted learning topic, and older kids tackle conversational basics in 85-minute sessions with eight or fewer pupils. An included Around the World with Language Stars CD reinforces lessons learned during class with 77 songs in five different languages and confuses guests when included in the party CD rotation.
Developed with input from early-childhood experts, the curriculum takes advantage of young brains’ pliancy to install foreign diction while simultaneously building cognitive skills through age-appropriate play. Kids can start classes at any time, though Language Stars recommends gaps of no more than a week between sessions to capitalize on progress and keep newly cosmopolitan imaginary friends from moving abroad.
Since opening its doors in 1998, Language Stars has introduced more than 30,000 children to foreign languages with small-group classes and full-immersion activities. Through a selective process, Language Stars recruits ambitious teachers from more than 20 countries who share a common goal of revolutionizing how and when American children learn foreign languages. Parents and Tots Classes are available for children between 1–3 years old, and Kids Only classes are available for children 3-5, 5-8, and 8-12 years old. Absorbent little minds soak up Spanish, Mandarin, French, Italian, German, or Arabic with the help of their FunImmersion approach, learning naturally through games, songs, activities and art projects.
