Teaching Philosophy & Mission
Second only maybe to a full time immersion school, our after school language program is the best way for your child to learn a second language. We use a combination of all modern immersion techniques including the Communicative Approach
and Task-based language learning
. We stand by the practice of not translating new words to English but rather using a series of visual cues and gestures.
Our unique “After-school” program was designed to give your child more immersion time for your dollar. We are confident that when children are given the time to settle into a second language environment, where they are building community with their classmates, they are more comfortable and quicker to start using the language. These classes are set up like a club. We usually gather in the home of one of the families or we rotate hosting. Students will be assessed and grouped by level and age.
Culture Club to You!
We believe strongly in the benefits of early childhood second language learning. We want to build a community of young language learners all over Portland, and believe the best way to do this is to bring our classes to you! Enrich a school, daycare program, or home by offering either French or Spanish without having to create an entire infrastructure or curriculum. Our teachers will come to your school or home with our program.
