      Enquiry From Childcare Centers

       

      In this global economy parents no longer have the luxury of asking themselves “should my child learn a second language”, the question they should be asking themselves is “when should I introduce the second language and what should that language be?”

       

      “One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way – Frank Smith”

      In fact across the world more and more children are learning a second language at home, and the art of learning this language is simply a part of growing up.We know that introducing a second language to children makes them better thinkers, more effective communicators and, more importantly, makes them global citizens. LCF Fun Language has been educating children across the world for over 40 years.  When it comes to teaching a language LCF uses implicit and explicit teaching methods to make the learning fun!

       

      If, like many parents, who are busy parent wondering when to find the time to introduce another activity, LCF, in partnership with Childcare Providers bring language learning to the centres allowing your child to learn with their friends in a space they are comfortable and confident in.
