Spanish Classes, Mandarin Classes, French Classes for Children and adults in Charlotte NC and surrounding areas. Our curriculum allows your child to start a class at any time!
The Foreign Language League offers classes in Spanish, Mandarin, and French to children as young as 18 months old up to adults. With the League's unique curriculum and teaching methods, your children will not only learn the target language, but thoroughly enjoy engaging in our classes.
Our approach combines several well documented techniques that have been very successful at second language acquisition or SLA.
- Play theory proves that using a highly imaginative theme combined with adult guidance in small groups promotes the highest level of language acquisition and social skills.
- Total Physical Response (TPR), exposes children a new target language using activities that provide a variety of ways to absorb and respond the target before actually speaking it. This mimics the way that children learn language naturally. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_Physical_Response
- The Rassias Method, exposes learners to new languages through dramatic communication full of emotion and feeling – the surest way to ensure that students retain what they learn. http://rassias.dartmouth.edu/method/.
With this approach at the root of how we teach kids, we make sure that in every class, our students are given many different ways to acquire and understand new sounds and concepts.
Spanish classes has been our most requested language since the day we started offering classes. Parents in every League community tell us that they feel that Spanish Instruction offers practical and cultural relevance for their children. The League offers Spanish classes for children in every area we serve.
The popularity of Mandarin classes is growing as China's influence grows in the U.S.and throughout the world. More and more families tell us that they want Mandarin for their children and take on the rigors of learning a language that is wholly unlike English in order to gain the advantage of being able to speak the "language of the future." FLL Mandarin teachers and curriculum developers developed a curriculum for Chinese Instruction that maintains our dynamic, playful approach while respecting the particular challenges of learning Chinese language.
French classes continues to be a popular choice among many families. French classes for children are back, and we are proud to offer this beautiful Romance Language.
