A FOREIGN LANGUAGE FOR KIDS PROGRAM:
Lango was established on the belief that every American child should learn a second language. Frustrated by the lack of options to teach their own kids another language (and having met many other families with the same concern), the founders of Lango set out to create a program that would teach kids new languages in a way that kids will love.
Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Lango has over 80 locations across the US, from Los Angeles to New York City. Lango recently expanded into Asia, offering classes in China, using the Lango Method to teach English. Lango classes are full immersion, typically for children 6 months to 12 years. Currently, Rogue Valley Lango is offering classes for ages 3-8 year olds, with anticipation of expansion in the future. The structured curriculum includes culturally based music, art, games, stories, movement and most importantly, P L A Y !
WHY CHOOSE LANGO:
While play is at the core of the curriculum, we also know significant studies have reported that studying a foreign language over an extended period of time has been shown to accelerate cognitive development, resulting in higher math and English grades later in life, as well as higher SAT scores.
That may be something that is important to you, or for many others it is simply the wonderful sounds of another language spoken or the idea of making future travel for their little ones easier. We believe language skills are retained best when they are encouraged at home, so we make class materials such as storybooks, flashcards, puppet Cosmo Dog (our language helper) and language-specific music available for purchase as well.
WE HOLD PARENT COMMUNICATION NEAR AND DEAR:
Lango is not only an opportunity for enjoyment, we are also an educational resource and parent communication is a source of pride. We are happy to speak with parents about ideas on how to increase language learning in their child's day-to-day lives. We know how important it is to know that your child is having fun and enjoying their educational experience.
