ABOUT THE LANGUAGE WORKSHOP FOR CHILDREN
The Language Workshop for Children is the oldest and most respected language immersion program for children. Since 1973, the LWFC has offered its renowned Thibaut Technique educational play programs to teach French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, or Italian to children between 6 months and 9 years of age.
Director Francois Thibaut believes that, “children remember the words that make them happy,” so his programs are lively, stimulating, and use emotion to help children associate their new language with things that they like to do (and mark the experience cognitively). LWFC teachers are full of energy and native-speakers, so during the “critical” linguistic acquisition years, your child learns to pronounce a language the way that it should be spoken.
LWFC materials won six major children’s educational media awards. Four times a year every student gets a brand new, professionally produced LWFC Songs & More Workbook/CD Set filled with 10-12 fresh, language-building melodies to learn in class and practice at home. Plus, Preschoolers and age 3+ classes also get a LWFC Storybook to help them speak in full sentences.
CNN called Director Thibaut “one of a very few experts in teaching languages to small children.” Parents Magazine named the LWFC “One of 6 Classes Worth the $.” The LWFC has also been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, People, Ladies Home Journal, ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, PBS, Telemundo, Univision, and other major media.
Don’t let your child’s prime time to learn a new language slip away. Start your child’s journey to speaking a new language at the LWFC.
