As the second most spoken language in Europe, German is the perfect introduction to learning a new language for kids of all ages. German is officially spoken in six European countries including Austria, Belgium, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Switzerland. German lessons for kids are not only highly beneficial for developing your child’s early cognitive skills, they can also open up many opportunities for them to study, live or work abroad in the future. We offer four German for kids programs, with every class tailored to students’ age and developmental stage.
A boost for the brain
Research has found that children who learn a second language may be more creative, better at problem solving, faster learners, and find it easier to connect with different cultures.
Children also find it much easier than adults to learn a second (or third) language because the language center of their brain is still in development.
