The Benefits of Challenging Kids with Learning a New Language

There are not a lot of places where children can learn a foreign language as a whole. In most programs, they simply learn basic words, phrases, and mainly songs.

Why Class Audits Are Ineffective

We often have requests from students to sit-in on or ‘try out’ a class before signing up. This is something that we have never allowed and I want to take a quick moment to explain why.

When to Repeat a Level

– Some students repeat a level if, for example, they finish level 4 and the following semester we cannot offer a level 5.

Class Profile: Crazy Spanish Intro

Meet my new Intro class! This is by FAR the craziest class I have ever had! They laugh through the entire two-hour class every Thursday evening. I wish all of the other classes laughed this way because I think there is something about their laughing that works for learning a new language. First of all, […]

CR Languages Turned 7 Years Old!

With every year that goes by, I’ve wanted to write a short paragraph talking about our first days, but here we are after seven years and we haven’t done it. That is because we have been so busy trying to keep up the good work, updating curriculum, meeting new teachers, and even changing locations! As […]
