Conceptual Understanding
Language proficiency assessments


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.


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.
