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.
