Message from our Founder

I founded Living the Language to unite my two greatest passions: children and languages.

Years ago I was asked to tutor a five-year-old Spanish student named Ella. While I discussed the curriculum with Ella's mother I realized Ella did not realize I was her new tutor. I was not what she expected!

Ella had never before had a Spanish teacher that looked like her. I spoke with a native accent, and knew Spanish from living a life in Spanish. At that moment I realized I was more than just a Spanish teacher.  I had a responsibility to give her new eyes to see the world and the beautiful diversity that comes with learning a new language and culture.

Through experiences like this the idea for Living the Language was born. We have grown into a diverse community of over one hundred children and parents supported by a like-minded goal of learning another language through experience. I love each of my students and enjoy pouring my energy and expertise into their development.  There are no “untalented” children and we help every child reach excellence.    

Living the Language is a full immersion language experience. Our primary objective is fluency, which we achieve by learning through real life experience. Through language we nurture children to become culturally curious, self-confident and globally minded.
