Our Methodology: TLP Knows How Children Learn Best.
The Language Project’s Proven Research Driven Methodology is based on the Natural Approach with play-based activities. That means children learn language much like how they got their first one: through the principles of experience, discovery and play.
Our curriculum begins with children as young as 2 years of age and takes them on a linguistic adventure through preschool, elementary school and middle school.
Multiple Levels, Rich Lessons.
TLP's courses are designed specifically for every age group's learning priorities.
Each level, which encompasses 30 lessons over an academic year, has a thoroughly developed curriculum including linguistic themes, sensory experiences, games, music, drama, stories and more. Each activity is designed to develop linguistic comprehension and production skills, creating a linguistic ladder. No vocabulary or linguistic form is ever left behind in this method. All language is used in context and builds upon itself. One cannot advance in language without relying on a firm foundation every step of the way.
Second language development using this methodology promotes critical thinking, curiosity, creativity and problem solving skills. Research confirms brain development is enhanced by second language learning in early childhood as by stimulating new neural growth and connections among neurons.1
Developed by Experts.
All Language Project curriculums are written by a team of experts in linguistic development and teaching methodologies, which are aligned with national standards as set forth by the American Council on Teaching Foreign Languages.
Learning our first language was all about immersion. We learned simply because we had to, everybody is speaking to us in these exciting new sounds that we naturally picked up on. TLP replicates this through fully immersive language learning in a nurturing, fun environment- just like how children learn their first language!
It's a Magical World.
The easiest way to learn a language is through discovery- language is developed as as link between the new things kids see each day & the sounds their new family makes to identify them. Children are always ready to discover new things and TLP introduces them to cultures, sights and sounds that aid in retention.
Children Learn Through FUN!
Learning anything new can be tough, even for brains as rapidly expanding and eager as childrens'. TLP uses an active, play-based methodology that helps kids balance learning with their natural desire for fun.
