|About||There are many benefits to learning more than one language at a young age, especially in our increasingly globalized world. Why not start now?|
In each class we strive to make a comfortable learning environment where children can discover the strength of knowing another language and be able to develop their cognitive skills, imagination, logical thought process while being in a group or during individual play. We will encourage social values such as respect for others and responsibility for oneself. Teachers will be involved in all the children’s activities and conversations to help model correct grammar and enrich their vocabulary.
The components of the immersion academy include: pre-literacy skills, concept development of fine motor & pre-literacy skills, storytelling, cognitive games for developing language acquisition and vocabulary. Our teaching methodology stimulates children to learn at their own pace and to feel excited about learning a foreign language. Learning activities encourage children to actively participate, feel comfortable and be eager to learn.
It is our goal to enable your child to become bilingual during the language acquisition window and explore different cultures pertaining to the language you choose. This will be a complete immersion experience, raising awareness of other cultures, demonstrating the importance of community and appreciation for other cultures.
The classes are 100% immersion, no English is spoken, however English is understood by our faculty to help your child navigate through their day. Our lively immersion classes integrate play, music, movement, and art to engage children and connect the words and foreign sounds to familiar items and activities.
Academic Advantages: Enhances memory and brain elasticity, problem solving, increases scores on standardized tests while improving critical thinking skills. Has a profound effect on your brain by forcing it to resolve internal conflict, giving the mind a workout that strengthens its cognitive muscles. Bilinguals seem to be more adept at solving certain types of mental puzzles, including ignoring distractions to stay focused, switching attention willfully from one thing to another, and retaining information in mind.
Cultural Intelligence: Very important in today's interconnected and globalized world. Helps to bridge the gap between different cultures, helps us better communicate, and understand one another in our unique and diverse world. Teaching your child at a young age to be more culturally understanding and open can help to spread peace and most importantly, knowledge.
