What is Lango?
"Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow."
Oliver Wendell Holmes
About Lango Foreign Languages for Kids
Lango Language Cooperative is made up of individual business owners across the country providing unique early learning language opportunities for kids. Our members provide classes for kids in schools, after school programs, day cares, community centers and studios. The Co-op provides an opportunity for learning through online support materials and sales of learning materials and curriculum to schools and other educators.
Our Cooperative Difference
Lango Language Cooperative (LLC) is a co-op of Lango business owner members throughout the U.S. who run independent Lango businesses in their respective communities. Unlike traditional businesses and franchises, LLC is neither owned by an individual nor controlled by the interests of a wholesale partner. Instead, LLC is owned and managed exclusively by its independent Lango business owner-members. In addition to the many fiscal and governing benefits, our unique business model allows our independent Lango business owners the ability to be more responsive to their customers, allowing them to adapt Lango offerings to the needs of their students and families.
Co-ops are owned by their members and driven by service, rather than profit, making them a unique way of doing business. Cooperatives are unique because they are not-for-profit, democratically controlled, member-owned enterprises. Members of cooperatives pool their assets to meet the needs of their community in various forms, such as food, financial services or purchasing power for independently owned businesses, like Lango.
In addition to running their own independent Lango businesses, Lango Language Coopyerative members vote on major decisions, volunteer on committees, provide services to the co-op, and elect a board of directors from among their own number.
Lango business owners offer dynamic and engaging Spanish, French and Mandarin classes and summer camps to kids across the U.S. Our classes teach children a new language in an immersion-based setting using songs, stories, games, dance -- even yoga to engage children in their new language.
