Employing the Thibaut technique pioneered by its founder in 1973, The Language Workshop's weekly 45-minute to one-hour sessions in Spanish, French, or Chinese combine a structured curriculum with youngsters' limitless energy and propensity for play. Native-speaking instructors immerse tykes in the target language with playtime and songs, emphasizing a business-standard accent that readies children for schoolyard games of ring around the stock exchange. Tots aged 3 years or younger attend class with a parent and engage in learning activities together, and older children attend class with a small group of their peers, ensuring that each student gets individual attention.
The toddlers' class requires a $25 workbook and CD, and the class for older kids requires a $35 workbook with CD and storybook. Though they're not included in the price of today's Groupon, Groupon buyers get 15 percent off of class supplies.
