Cosmo is a kind and sensitive puppy who was born in small cabin in the woods close to the ocean. He is quite shy and a bit nervous but is always willing to try something new (with a little coaxing of course). Once he feels comfortable he will open up and sing, and laugh and play.
Wen (5) was born in China and comes to the international school every day. He is an explorer and not afraid of anything, (a fact that often finds him getting into a bit of trouble). He is quiet but great at solving problems and the kids often come to him when they can’t figure something out. He sometimes disappears to go exploring and the rest of the kids have to go looking for him. Kids learn through him that it’s important to be inquisitive, but equally important to be part of a group.
Ms. L (30) is the teacher at the international school and lives there with cosmo. She has been all over the world and has stories, instruments, songs, maps, clothes, and food from everywhere. She is very patient and teaches through stories and letting the kids explore. She loves to garden and when she’s not teaching she loves adventure sports.
Luc (6) was born in France and comes to the international school every day. Luc is the class clown and is always making jokes and being physically very funny. He is an amazing artist and sometimes when Ms. L is telling a story he will draw the scene on the board (the other kids love when he does this). Luc also loves animals and knows everything about every different kind of animal (and if he doesn’t know it he pretends he does). Kids learn through him the importance of being honest and that’s it’s okay to not know and to ask for help. Cosmo is his best buddy.
Lucia (7) was born in Argentina and is the big sister of the group. She is a leader and looks up to Ms. L a lot. She takes care of the chores around the school (ie. Watering the plants, feeding the fish, changing the date on the calendar) and helps the smaller kids to learn these things. She loves to read and is smart, organized and confident. She is also very agreeable in the classroom, but when you get her into a game she becomes super active and competitive. Kids learn from her about routine and commitment, but also about how competition can get in the way of fun and discovery.

I just want to let you know that my daughter, Casey, already loves Spanish. "Mommy, Spanish is cool!" is the exact quote I got this afternoon. Many thanks for working so hard to bring this great program to EARTHS!
We have all learned many Spanish words and phrases. My kids both have absorbed the language like little fish. They usually remember words and phrases that I do not and they are always asking me how to say certain things in Spanish (which either have to look up or ask Kelli). I highly recommend Kelli and the Lango class!
Just had to tell you that my daughter *loves* the Lango CD. Each morning this week since Spanish class, she runs into the living room and jumps up and down yelling, "dance, dance!"
