Can your baby learn French or Mandarin?
Teachers at Lango Foreign Language believe it's never too early to
teach your child a second language, and they have the 14-month-old
students to prove it.
Infants and toddlers can participate in Mommy-and-Me language classes
at the school, which has various locations throughout Irvine and South
County cities like Mission Viejo and Laguna Niguel. Full-immersion
classes in French, Spanish and Mandarin are also offered to preschool
and elementary-age students interested in picking up another tongue.
"Studies have shown the window of opportunity for learning a new
language is between birth and 6 years old," said Cyndi Kimball,
regional operator for Lango Foreign Language For Kids. "We really try
to target that age group when the brain is still forming and learning
language is easier."
