The Saturday Language School aims to promote early second language acquisition by children who want to learn a second (or third!) language. Children in pre-K (3 years old/potty trained) through 5th grade will have the opportunity to learn a second language and gain knowledge of the rich cultural traditions of the target cultures. Playgroup classes are available for smaller children focusing only on culture and minimal language instruction.

The program’s philosophy is based on research findings that the best time to start learning a second language is during childhood, and that early second language education brings cognitive, academic, social, and cultural advantages to children. The curriculum includes activities that teach languages through games, songs, stories, and crafts. Students will be placed in the appropriate class according to their proficiency. Bilingual and heritage speakers are also welcome.

Your children will be placed in the appropriate language level (L1, L2, L3) based on previous experience.
