Culture Club’s after-school program is the best way for your child to learn a second language, second only to a full-time immersion school. We use a combination of all modern immersion techniques including the Communicative Approach and task-based language learning. Our more natural way of learning language rises far above the traditional memory drills and grammar structures.
Today’s modern parent clearly sees the value of learning a foreign language and of starting early, while it is especially fun and easy. Full-time immersion is not available to every family, for a number of reasons. So how do we achieve immersion results in just four or five hours a month? Our three-pronged approach, with roots in immersion, relies on learning through context, community, and confidence.
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.
