At Carousel of Languages, Greek classes for kids are taught by native speakers with extensive training in the Carousel Teaching System®. Our unique methodology is based on a multisensory approach to foreign language classes for children. Our curriculum applies verbal, visual, and tactile associations to early childhood themes and skills. Themes and skills grow more complex as children learn and progress.
Infants and Toddlers In our unique Greek classes for kids, infants and toddlers think and learn through their senses and the manipulation of objects in the world around them. At this stage, Carousel of Languages Greek teachers encourage children to manipulate physical props while listening and absorbing new vocabulary. Infant and toddler Greek class components include traditional songs and nursery rhymes with customized visual aids and props, movement & finger plays. Children are actively engaged in a beautiful, nurturing environment.
Pre-school Age In our unique Greek classes for kids, pre-school age children develop memory and use symbols while learning. At this age, children are introduced to new vocabulary, based on early childhood themes, in a full immersion setting. Pre-school Greek class components include basic conversation, music & movement, interactive storytelling, dramatic play, and games for grasping and retaining new vocabulary. Our beautiful and customized teaching materials provide a stimulating, multi-sensory experience.
Elementary School Age Children in this stage organize information in more logical and systematic ways. In our unique Greek classes for kids, school age students take theme-based learning further by classifying objects on more complex levels and testing out new ideas. Greek class components for school age children include conversation, dramatic play, logical thinking activities, as well as basic reading, writing & grammar.
Age 12+ In our unique Greek classes for kids, older students focus on broader concepts about Greece as a country and Greek culture. Stronger emphasis is placed on reading, writing, grammar, and fluent conversational skills.
