In our ever-growing global society, it is important for young children to be exposed to different cultures and languages. It is now almost standard for students to learn two or more languages, and a basic 21st-century skill set to have in a multinational work force. The Little Language League in Rye, located at 22 Purdy Avenue, 2nd floor, is an excellent resource for your child to get a head start in learning a second language. The importance is made clear through the 5 C’s of Early Language Learning set forth on the company’s website: Capture the Critical Period, Craft Cognitive Skills, Cultivate Self-confidence, Celebrate Cultural Understanding, and Create a World of Possibility.
LLL offers classes in French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, and English as a Second Language for infants through 8th graders. The Fall Session, which begins September 5, includes several weekly class options. Your child can either learn in a regular classroom setting, through a language theater workshop, or you can join them in a parent-child class.
They will host open houses on August 30 and September 6 at 11 a.m. at which you and your child can learn more about their programs and participate in a mini-class. To register, visit www.languageleague.com or call 921-9075.
