Special Classes for Children and Families
The importance of early language training for children in terms of their long-term
academic success is well documented. We apply the same dynamic SpeakNow
principles to teaching children languages in classrooms, in neighborhood groups,
individually and with their families. Classes can be arranged
in your location or ours.
The most ordinary times during the day can be special times when you share them
with your family. You and your children can learn a new language and about the
customs of other cultures together. Classes can be held at your home or our offices.
Private and semi-private classes or small group classes.
