  • Who: Carousel of Languages
  • Where: Upper East side neighborhood
  • When: Open for ages 2 to 12
  • Why: Develop critical thinking skill
  • What: Learn from 10 foreign language
  • Bonus: Explore camps, classes and birthday party venues

Carousel of Languages tailors each program to meet student requirement, with consideration to his or her learning style. The small class sizes enable complete student participation. Native-speaking teachers not only act as international ambassadors but they help broaden the understanding of diversity leading to pride in shared heritage and strengthening family bonds. By learning foreign languages, children develop critical thinking skills, enhance creativity and improve mental flexibility. Instructors guide children on their language journey through an immersive environment, customized materials and native-speaking tools. Studying languages has been found to help with math, reading and standardized testing performance.

LANGUAGES: Exposure to multiple language challenges the brain to recognize, decipher meaning and communicate within a different context thus impacting decision making and critical thinking across other disciplines and studies.Children can learn a new language as early as 3 to 6 months but by their third birthday their ability to be open to language learning decreases, while other skills develop. Bilingual children develop better listening capabilities and find their English skills improve especially in writing, reading, editing and speaking.

Help your child by visiting our community and learning more about the benefits of language.
