Early Childhood is the best time to learn a second language!

The earlier a child is exposed to a second language the better the chance that he/she will retain it for a lifetime. Our brains are best receptive to acquire language in the early childhood years ages 0-8. Even before learning to read the foundation for language is established.

Young children thrive on emotion & interaction. Music Lingua uses a natural approach to second language acquisition, similar to the way we learn our own native tongue. Through meaningful opportunities to hear, understand & finally speak. Voila!

Music Lingua integrates music & French vocabulary for easy retention & incorporates thematic activities that keep young children engaged.

Our fun & relaxed environment makes learning French a joyful experience!

Benefits of learning a second language

There is a strong link between language, music and other developmental skills, such as math and logical thinking. Children who are exposed to music and/or foreign language instruction show measurable improvements in other cognitive skills. This is a significant benefit for bi-lingual children not only in aiding their over-all school experience but also potentially providing them with more options when considering a career path.

Learning a second language promotes global/cultural awareness & appreciation!

When children are exposed to & encouraged to learn a second language, it teaches them about other cultures around the world & inspires an interest in understanding more about our global community.

Parent-Child Classes & Drop-off Classes

Music Lingua Classes are offered in 10-week sessions. Classes meet once per week for 45 minutes.

Each child receives a French music CD & corresponding bi-lingual thematic activity book, read-along storybook & CD & toy to take home. These materials help to reinforce the songs & vocabulary while in between classes. They are also a great way to share French with family & friends!

Parent participation is required for children 3 & under. Children 4 & up may be dropped off but parents are always welcome to stay & join us!

The cost is $215 per 10-week session including registration & materials. There is a 10% sibling discount.
