French For Tots®

Language Workshop for Children

Kidz Tips
  • Kids can learn 4 different languages!
  • Convenient Upper East Side location
  • Learn with music, games, visuals & more!

In Languages for Tots® students attend with a parent or caregiver.  Then they magically absorb their new language through gentle language immersion activities, teacher-child interaction, lots of tactile props and visual aids, original vocabulary-building songs, and much more.  Tots playgroups build more than language skills. As youngsters handle toys and visual aids, they develop motor skills and coordination. As they participate and interact they imagine, discover, and build social skills. And as they’re asked to recall and respond, they turn into students and reinforce what they’re learning in class.

The Language Workshop for Children’s approach remains the first and most respected method in children’s language educational play.  Part of the LWFC’s Thibaut Technique® magic is their special teacher training where instructors are taught to blend emotional support, smiles, warmth, language-rich melodies, child-friendly props, routines, stories, and one-on-one interaction.  The LWFC knows how to capture a child’s imagination; so that children truly learn all of the words and phrases that they’re hearing and practicing.  

Best of all, every session each student is handed a new LWFC Songs & More Workbook/CD Set filled with 10-12 language-rich melodies to sing and help them remember their new vocabulary, phonetics, and sentence patterns.

What’s the secret to our internationally recognized language classes at The Language Workshop for Children?

Our unique, internationally-recognized teaching method, which is developed especially for children. They discover language through movement, touch, sight, hearing, voice and emotion to ensure that what they learn they retain for life. The Language Workshop for Children’s Director/Founder François Thibaut invented the enriched play method to teach French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and English to kids. Since 1973 his internationally-recognized LWFC has offered stimulating language lessons for babies, toddlers and elementary grades. Original music, vocabulary-building songs, language immersion, festive visual aids, action games and native-fluent language teachers are why the LWFC is the country’s leader in children’s language educational play. As Thibaut says, “Children remember the words that make them happy”.

To the untrained eye LWFC classes resemble simple playgroups. The difference is The Thibaut Technique®, a whole language approach employing both sides of the brain. The left brain governs grammar, vocabulary and meaning while the right processes emotion and voice melody. Songs reinforce grammatical patterns, visual aids symbolize vocabulary, and games carry emotion; vital factors when teaching children to speak another language.


The LWFC’s native speaker teachers are carefully trained to use our respected Thibaut Technique®. And our language-rich songs are especially written for the LWFC, recorded by native speakers, and reinforce grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation in a happy way. Every session, students receive a professionally produced, durable and collectable Songs & More CD/Workbook Set (plus an LWFC Storybook for older students) to practice what they’re learning at home. Since the LWFC produces the multi-award winning Professor Toto Language Education Series you know you are getting top quality materials.


Whether it is private lessons, language immersion preschool, after-school lessons, toddler classes, baby education or summer day camp, the subtle details of the LWFC’s celebrated Thibaut Technique® and the quality of their colorful and professional take-home materials is what makes the difference.
