Program Details Community Language School (CLS) Online Language Enrichment Programs_Summer 2020
Japanese for Kids
Our kids programs are open to children ages 6-9 and are designed to provide a fun learning environment that focuses on playful interactions in the target language. It will sensitize children to language learning, help them acquire an awareness and appreciation of other cultures, enhance their understanding of the native language, and hopefully motivate them to pursue language study. Our goals are to introduce the children to different facets of the target language and culture, expand their existing knowledge, and increase their abilities in speaking and listening while incorporating some reading and writing in the target language. We emphasize functional language use and cultural awareness. Our small class sizes allow us to work more closely with your children and maximize learning outcomes.
Multiple-child/-program discounts are available (10%). To qualify, registrations must be on the same transaction. Need-based scholarships are available as well. Please contact our office for more information.
Classes will be cancelled if fewer than 5 students enroll. All classes meet in Wells Hall.
