Tips To Learn a Language

Hello students! Today we will be going through some helpful tips to learn/practice a language. Tip 1: Study harder, not longer. Studying a language more frequently for a shorter time can be more beneficial then studying infrequently for a longer length of time. It is recommended that you practice everyday rather than once a week, as languages require repetition and consistent practice. Tip 2: Learn to hear the language It is not uncommon for languages to have a pattern of pronunciation. It is helpful to learn and take note of these patterns so that they can be noticed and used with more ease. e.g.: in Spanish most feminin words end in « a » ; in French all future tenses include the sound « r

Toddler Classes - Results

Just over a year ago, we started to teach babies aged 6 months, based on the results of scientific studies. These linguistic studies presented results proving that babies who were in contact with a native speaker regularly before 8 months of age developed and maintained a capacity to hear and reproduce sounds in a foreign language (see TED Talk: The Linguistic Genius of Babies by Patricia Kuhl). Two babies, from two different families, started with us at approximately the same age, one being in contact with a Mandarin speaker once a week, another one being in contact with a native French speaker 2 to 3 times a week. So what are the results a year in the program? Before saying any more we wou
