Hello Giovana,

I had to write to let you know our kids were speaking to each other in Chinese at the dinner table tonight! Sounded like sentences and phrases. One would ask the question, one would answer.  Back and forth. They thought is was fun that we did not know what they were saying so I am not sure of content:) When we ask them specifics, they don't like to perform for us. This was a spontaneous conversation.

Needless to say, we are very happy with this program!  
My daughter has been in two other programs, one too easy, one too hard, neither very fun.  This is working!

Thank you,

Cheryl R

Hello Giovana,

I wanted to express how wonderful your program was for our 4th grade daughter, Elizabeth, this year. If we weren't moving, we would sign her up all summer and straight on thru high school. My husband and I are both English only speaking parents, so we find great joy in watching our daughter take such a keen interest in a second language. Elizabeth's Mandarin teacher, Michela, makes learning the language fun! It was never a struggle to get my child to class. She was always excited to learn more each week!

My goal for her 4th grade year was to keep her interested in learning Mandarin and your school far exceeded our expectations. Thank you for this fabulous school. It truly is a wonderful program!!!

Best to you and the school,

Tracy Elder

Dear Olympia and Giovana,

I wanted to thank you both for helping us get on track with Spanish.

Olivia and I go over the lessons before class with homemade match up cards so she knows the words before she goes in.  This has made a HUGE difference for her. After the first class back, when Olympia said Olivia was a “star student”, Olivia was thrilled!  In her own words, “this was the  best day ever!”

We are practicing lesson 3 with nieces and nephews.

Thanks again for all your help and the DVD/lessons at home.

When we moved back to Charlotte from Hong Kong, we wanted our daughter Maggie (6) and Nicholas (3) to continue with their Mandarin studies.  While we are not native speakers nor Chinese Americans, we wanted our children to continue their exposure and with time develop their skills.  We have been very pleased with the results from the Foreign Language League.  I believe it is a combination of their teaching style and teachers which makes them successful.  We have attended sessions at Monkey Joes with our Laoshi Michela Kaden. Michela not only has excellent mandarin skills, but a great way of making connections with small children and grade schoolers.  Both my children like going to her class. I commend the Foreign Language League for finding such a terrific teacher and would recommend their Mandarin program.

She loved it actually.  More than her, me and my husband loved the teaching methods.  I am very happy that we selected you guys.

I Just registered Brandon for the Summer. My husband's really impressed with how much he knows. In class Brandon acted like a crazy monkey horsing around but he really did get a lot out of it.

Have a good night,

Your daughters said that this was the best Spanish class they have ever taken. Is that so? 



Yes, it is true. We have been at The Language academy and I had my neighbor teaching them. The girls as well as myself appreciate the method and Olympia is WONDERFUL and PLEASANT!!


They are learning and having fun and we are very excited about continuing.


Thank you very much for bringing this to the area.

Dear Giovana,
I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how thrilled I am about your Preschool class! As a parent you always want to do what is in the best interest of your child but because parenting is 24/7, you don't always immediately know that your choice was the right one. After two weeks in the Tuesday class, I know that I made the right choice for my daughter Emily. The material and pace are age appropriate and Mrs. Olympia is really great with the children and the parents.
Thank you so much for bringing this program to the Charlotte area, it is a great program and I wish you and your team continued success!
All the best!

My two kids, Gabriel 10 and Silas 8, have been taking Spanish for about 8 weeks. This is the first time they are expose to Spanish ever!

The other morning my 8 year old was saying "La Escuela" during his sleep. I was in shock!. All this time I couldn't really tell how much they were learning, but when I heard that, I am convinced this method works!!! Now we are even thinking in putting them in Mandarin and Spanish at the same time...
