Languages for Tots(R) (6M-3Y) | 45 Minutes | LWFC Songs & More Workbook/CD Set Included
Expose your child to a foreign language’s unique sounds, native pronunciation, word meanings, and sentence forms while he or she’s still absorbing his first language. Capture a youngster’s prime time to learn a new language – those years that neurolinguist Eric Lenneberg dubbed the early “opportunity years.” LWFC classes, camps, and preschools blend Francois Thibaut’s enriching, time-tested method with immersion, top-notch materials, emotional reinforcement, native speaking teachers, and stimulating activities.
In Languages for Tots® students attend with a parent or caregiver. Then they magically absorb their new language through gentle language immersion activities, teacher-child interaction, lots of tactile props and visual aids, original vocabulary-building songs, and much more. Tots playgroups build more than language skills. As youngsters handle toys and visual aids, they develop motor skills and coordination. As they participate and interact they imagine, discover, and build social skills. And as they’re asked to recall and respond, they turn into students and reinforce what they’re learning in class.
The Language Workshop for Children’s approach remains the first and most respected method in children’s language educational play. Part of the LWFC’s Thibaut Technique® magic is their special teacher training where instructors are taught to blend emotional support, smiles, warmth, language-rich melodies, child-friendly props, routines, stories, and one-on-one interaction. The LWFC knows how to capture a child’s imagination; so that children truly learn all of the words and phrases that they’re hearing and practicing.
Best of all, every session each student is handed a new LWFC Songs & More Workbook/CD Set filled with 10-12 language-rich melodies to sing and help them remember their new vocabulary, phonetics, and sentence patterns.
