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 their ability to acquire new information. We do not schedule specific times to teach languages, because our children are soaked in the language at all times.

OUR Languages

French, Spanish, and Mandarin are spoken throughout the day at Le Nido. For those students who will continue in an English-only system, we introduce English during their final year.
