Beginnings Encourages Foreign Language Learning

Jonathan Sommer

thumb_languagelearningbeginnings2At Beginnings School we encourage our students to learn about other languages and cultures.  Since many of our families are international and speak languages other than English at home, we like to incorporate basic words into the classroom and oftentimes Beginnings parents share their traditions from home in the classroom by reading stories in their native language, cooking dishes, or other activities.  In this photo, Beginnings School parent, Kristy, is reading a story in Russian to the children from our Seedling infant room and our Star preschool room. We encourage all of our current parents and potential parents to get involved and learn more about the foreign language classes we offer including Spanish and new this year Chinese Mandarin.

Check out this resource with info on language acquisition in young children called Language Castle.

Contact us at Beginnings to learn more about how we incorporate language learning into our unique curriculum for infant, preschool, Pre-K, and Kindergarten age children.
