Carousel of Languages enriches the minds of infants, toddlers and school age kids through early exposure and immersion in a foreign language.
The Carousel Teaching System® follows a methodology that emphasizes the importance of multi-sensory learning through verbal, visual and tactile association. It is based on 30 early childhood themes and learning standards. Themes and skills grow more complex as children learn and progress. Our exclusive methodology has been proven over 18 years of classroom success.
Infants and Toddlers
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 teachers encourage children to manipulate physical props while listening and absorbing new vocabulary. Infant and toddler class components include traditional songs with customized visual aids and props, interactive story telling with tactile pieces, movement & finger plays. Children are actively engaged in a beautiful and nurturing environment.
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 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. Our school age students take theme-based learning further by classifying objects on more complex levels and testing out new ideas. Class for school age children focus on conversation, dramatic play, logical thinking activities, as well as basic reading, writing & grammar.
For our older children and more advanced students, we introduce broader concepts about China as a country and Chinese culture. Stronger emphasis is placed on reading, writing, grammar, and fluent conversational skills. Additional learning materials are customized by our experienced teachers towards students' level, interest, and need.
