  • Description - Language In Action

    WHO ARE WE? Our Language Centers are located in San Francisco and Corte Madera. We offer immersion programs in Spanish and Mandarin to children ages 18 months through 10 years old. We teach children naturally through play, games, arts, songs, drama, books and cooking. Kids learn at an incredibly fast rate and we give them the opportunity to do so in a fun, natural way! Our name, Language in Action, identifies our opinion that children learn best through the variety of activities that they enjoy in daily life - art, song, dance, games and conversation. A recent article on the topic says it best: "Kids soak up language by osmosis... particularly when it's taught through a variety of activities. After all, that is the way we learn our own language." WHY? We teach children for a simple reason: linguistic researchers have identified a clear window of opportunity between the ages of 18 months and 10 years during which learning a language comes easiest. This is where early childhood language experience develops as a skill that is likely to remain for the rest of the child's life.
