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.

Typical steps in establishing a program in your school include:

  • Meeting with school administration and/or parent groups to establish goals.
  • A Culture Club presentation at your school:
    • A short presentation with Q+A.
    • Can be attended by all interested parents or a “language committee” subset.
    • Can be coordinated with existing PTA/O meetings.

Example of a typical program (can be customized to meet your school’s needs):

  • Minimum of two sessions per week
  • Choice of either a 50-minute lesson or  1.5 hours lesson in addition to creative activity in the target language
  • Minimum of 6 children per class to start the program
  • Maximum of 15 children per class
  • Adult involvement – Culture Club asks that there is participation by a school staff member or parent volunteer, primarily for logistical support and role modeling.  Parent volunteers receive a 50% tuition scholarship for their significant commitment and contribution. To learn more about our assistant role, contact us here .

Program/tuition options:

  • Optional Parent Pay program:  Tuition is paid directly from parents to Culture Club.  Culture Club will handle all communication and financial information.
  • Institutional Pay program:  Culture Club works with the school to develop a schedule for all students to receive our language program as part of their regular curriculum.  Tuition is paid by the school to Culture Club. To design your language program for your school today, contact us here .

 

Group classes in your home

This is a great experience for your children! Put together your own group of friends and/or neighbors and we will set up a class for your group. Taking Spanish or French with their friends will motivate them and help them to learn faster and practice more. Let’s build community while teaching our children foreign languages and about the different countries that speak them.

* A group of four to seven children of similar age is required.

 

 You can also learn a language as a family

You and your child are able to develop the language together. Our teaching pattern follows the level of your child’s ability to communicate. By this your child will enjoy class and retain any new knowledge while having fun and you will be there learning it with him or her from the start. Parents help and encourage the child but more often the child helps and encourages the parents. With a foreign language the playing field is leveled.
