ABSORBENT MINDS

"children have a sponge like brain. They are capable of learning a foreign language without effort."

 

(Maria Montessori)

At LTL we’ve put together a multilingual environment where children hear and learn several languages.

Native Speakers

We pay close attention to the spirit of the language. We choose to focus on accent, intonation and correct pronunciation because those elements are essential when becoming fluent in a new language. For this reason, our instructors are native speakers who speak to children only in that child’s target language. This assures that the children are learning directly from the source.


Linguistic Submersion

Our unique full immersion program creates a “bain linguistique”. We respect every child's unique skills and abilities to acquire new information. We do not schedule specific times to teach the foreign language because our children are constantly soaked in the language. This allows the children to be in direct contact with their languages at all times.

OUR Languages

French, Spanish, Mandarin are spoken throughout the day at "Le Nido."  During a student's last year, we introduce English for children that will continue in an English only system.
