A child's sponge-like brain takes in a constant stream of knowledge, which is why kids should be kept away from vacuum cleaners and vacuum-cleaner manuals written in Latin. Send non-dead language down your child's knowledge-stream with today's Groupon, which gets you two Tots' classes for $36 at the Language Workshop for Children in Manhasset (a $73 value). Choose from the following packages (ages 13 months to 3 years):
- Italian for Tots: two Wednesday classes on February 2 and 9, 10:30 a.m.–11:15 a.m.
- Chinese for Tots: two Thursday classes on February 3 and 10, 1:45 p.m.–2:30 p.m.
Using total language immersion with a music- and game-based approach, the Language Workshop for Children creates a fun, playful environment for little ones to learn languages. Native-speaking teachers will instruct in the ways of Chinese and Italian, utilizing vocabulary-building songs, colorful pictures, and action games to help children learn grammar, vocabulary, and punctuation.
The Language Workshop for Children
There may be a lot of playtime at The Language Workshop for Children, but don't think the students aren't learning; during classes, instructors use songs, games, toys, and more to teach children the basics of tongues such as French, Spanish, and Chinese.
The Language Workshop is the brainchild of François Thibaut, who created the school in 1973 after years of observing how children learned languages. In the same vein, instructors understand that even infants can pick up a second language, and they teach anyone from 6 months to 9 years old in group classes, with private lessons available for older students in certain locations.
