World Brooklyn is the first of a series of events informing parents about the options of exposing children to another language so parents can make informed choices.
Lango Brooklyn will bring vendors and bilingual experts straight to parents to learn more about Brooklyn resources for raising children bilingually.
When & Where
Lango Brooklyn is a full-immersion foreign language program that teaches Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese to young children ages 0-12 using art, dance, movement, music and games. Taught by native speaking teachers, classes are generally 45-minutes in length and offered in small group settings of 5-10 students.
Lango was started by Brooklyn mom Sharon Ng whose dream is to prepare children to be global citizens who are intellectually curious, culturally aware and linguistically capable ALL while having a blast learning another language!
