Lingual Kids was established in 2002 by Terra Baker-Trofort. Terra’s own language studies, extensive travel, and commitment to education inspired her to create a program that would use age-appropriate themes and participatory lessons to engage young learners. Lingual Kids holds its instructors to the highest education standards, so you can trust that your facilitators will be fluent in your language of choice, enthusiastic, and attentive to the unique needs of the students in their care.
Our mission is to to equip and empower today’s youth with foreign language skills that will enable them to connect, function and compete in a global society. The emerging global society demands that we bridge gaps by learning languages other than our own. Lingual Kids is actively preparing today’s students for tomorrow’s challenges. Lingual Kids seeks to create an appreciation of cultural diversity, incorporate literacy-rich and age-appropriate themes, engage active learners with exploratory, dynamic and participatory foreign language courses and lessons. Teachers go beyond teaching basic Mandarin and Spanish words, but actually gear students toward conversational skills and fluency. Students gain a greater sense of global community, a competitive edge in the future global marketplace, enhanced cognitive reasoning and qualitative skills, as well as expanded active communication skills.
At Lingual Kids, we only hire qualified instructors to teach our language classes. All instructors are fluent in your selected foreign language by nature of being bilingual or obtaining a degree in the language. All instructors are trained in the Lingual Kids Focus on Fun approach to teaching.
