Classes & Camps
"To have another language is to
possess a second soul."
At Lango, children ages 18 months to 11 years learn a new language in small-group immersion sessions. Our independently owned Lango operators deliver highly engaging Spanish, French and Mandarin classes and language immersion summer camps to kids in a dynamic, engaging learning environment.
We believe that kids learn best when every sense is involved in learning a language – not just listening and speaking.That's why we've developed a unique curriculum to incorporate moving, singing, dancing, playacting, and creative problem solving to help kids absorb their new language in a completely natural way. Because our sessions are action-packed and full of variety, kids have a blast -- which helps them learn even more!
Lango classes are a dynamic and engaging way for kids to learn Spanish, French, and Mandarin. Our teachers are dedicated to guiding students through language acquisition through fun activities and challenges using Lango’s Graduated Immersion© approach.
Toddler and Parent Language Classes (Ages 1.5-3)
Children in this class don't sit still for long! Accompanied by parents or caregivers, these young "students" (ages 1 1/2 to 3 years) start learning a new language through a variety of activities designed to engage their minds and bodies. Students become great friends with Cosmo the Bulldog, participating in his crazy adventures right alongside him and his friends, the Lango Kids. Music and movement form the foundation for the classes, as the children sing simple, rhythmic songs and dance, run, spin and jump around the room! Meanwhile, our teachers work with the accompanying adults, teaching them age-appropriate games and activities so that they can reinforce learning at home. These "playclasses" are great for parents and caregivers who want to learn a new language alongside their children!
Preschooler Language Classes (Ages 3-5)
Fun and play form the foundation for our preschoolers foreign language classes. Within two or three classes, kids ages 3-5 learn key phrases in their new language through simple, repeated songs and chants. Meanwhile, they become familiar with more complex aspects of the language by engaging in "adventures," tactile and movement-based games that require them to solve simple problems - in their new language, of course! These adventures, starring the Lango Kids, our multicultural cast of characters, take students to other lands and cultures to ensure that their language instruction is combined with cultural exposure. Preschooler foreign language classes are great for kids who are enrolled in preschool, but have not yet started kindergarten.
Elementary Language Classes (Ages 6-11)
Our early elementary students learn their new languages through adventures, activities that require increasing levels of engagement and understanding over time, and that reward kids with a feeling of accomplishment. A simple literacy component ensures that these students not only listen, speak, sing and play in their new language, but read and write as well. Lango is proud to partner with dozens of elementary schools nationwide to provide convenient classes to their students. Find an Elementary Language Class.
