FwFL Program
+ Why Spanish or Chinese?
There are many benefits for children that learn a second language. For starters, it is easier to learn the younger you are. Also, research shows that creativity and problem solving skills can be enhanced. Learn more about the benefits here. So, why are Spanish and Chinese so important? According to many sources, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese are the 2 of the 3 most spoken languages in the world (Third is English). Here are more specific reasons for Spanish and Mandarin.
+ Spanish
According to U.S. Travel Association, direct expenses on leisure travel by domestic and international travelers totaled $526 billion in 2010. The statistics show that nowadays people are willing to travel abroad. Spanish-speaking countries are popular travel destinations for many Americans. And, wouldn’t our experiences be that much better if we could communicate even basics in Spanish? Spanish is one of the easiest foreign languages for English speakers to learn. Much of the Spanish vocabulary is similar to English and Spanish is a phonetic language, meaning words are pronounced as they are written.
+ Mandarin Chinese
China has become the second largest economy in the world, and Mandarin Chinese is the language spoken by over 1 billion people in the world. Learning Mandarin Chinese at an early age helps children to be competitive in the future. The US Government has identified Mandarin Chinese as a critical language, meaning it is critical for US national security and for economic competitiveness. The Chinese culture is over 5000 years old. Teaching children Mandarin Chinese exposes children to another culture that is rich in history. US school administrators are recognizing the importance of teaching Mandarin Chinese to American children.
+ Curriculum
The proprietary FwFL curriculum for group classes is divided into 3 sessions: Fall(10 weeks), Winter (8 weeks), and Spring (10 weeks). In each session, the curriculum is based on thematic 3-week units that are designed to provide new instruction for the first 2 weeks of the unit and then a week of review. This gives our students an opportunity to reinforce vocabulary and/or sentence structures before moving onto a new theme. While each theme, such as “At the Ranch” changes over the course of our school year, we will continue to reinforce similar vocabulary and sentence structures and introduce new ones as well. Our curriculum is not progressive such as a traditional school where concepts continue to build on each other, making it more difficult for students that join in the middle of a school year to acclimate themselves to the lessons. Rather, by using our thematic 3-week structure, students can join at any time and be easily be integrated into the program and its teachings. As part of the FwFL curriculum, we provide activity sheets for home reinforcement that correspond to each new topic taught. Parents also have access through our website to the audio files associated with the activity sheets. For those families that want to have the flexibility of listening to the audio files in other places, such as in a car, families can purchase a CD of the audio files for each session for an additional cost of $5.00.
