Over the years we have heard parents say, “I wish I learned another language when I was younger,” or “it’s too bad foreign language education does not start earlier”.
One World Language School was founded based on these type of feelings. Our mission is to make foreign language learning accessible at a young age. Even though it is never too late to learn a second language, we all know that starting early is the best time.
Many parents say, “children are like sponges”, well…this means children can pick up a language fairly quickly given the opportunity. For proof, just ask those that grew up in Europe, Asia, South America, etc. They learn multiple languages at the same time.
We have been around for over a decade because there is a strong interest from parents wanting their children to be bilingual. We live in a competitive global economy, and we strongly believe that knowing a second language can better prepare your children for their future. The benefits of learning another language includes, enhance academic performance, memory improvement, culture awareness, better at multitasking, and build self-confidence. And your child can one day travel to another country speaking its native language.
Parents and children choose One World Language School because of our teaching methodology. We teach children languages in a effective and fun way in a group environment. We use a game based approach that children find engaging, and are able to remember new information quickly. Imagine a classroom with children at the elementary level. One minute the students will be in a circle passing a ball around, and asking questions to one another in the target language, next they may be participating in a mini relay race, and finally wrap up with a reinforcement activity such as sculpting vocabulary. Our advanced students might be performing a skit in the target language, or they may be writing their own comic strips. The goal is to make learning another language enjoyable, and unique per lesson while continuing to incorporate the information students have learned in the past.
We teach French, German, Mandarin, and Spanish. These are the languages that tend to be offered at the junior and high school level. Our young students get a head start to becoming more proficient in knowing a second language. In the past we have had students who have gone on to advanced language classes at the secondary level. We even have had students enroll in German classes at the University of New Hampshire during their high school years.
We believe all students deserve a chance to learn another language. We at One World Language School enjoy providing this learning experience to all children. Feel free to contact us.
