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
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.
