World Language

Build on your child’s academic success by giving them the opportunity to learn a second language!  Research shows that the elementary years are the best time for children to learn another language, enhancing cognitive development and academic performance.  Children also broaden their understanding and appreciation for other cultures.  We use an immersion approach to learning. Courses are mostly taught in the target language by native or fluent instructors.

Is your child(ren) enjoying learning a new language? Or are you looking to extend their opportunity after the school year? Wisconsin Youth Company offers a World Language Immersion Camp during the summer. Campers grow in confidence and in understanding of themselves and others while challenging kids to achieve.  For more information, please click over to our World Language Immerison Camp page.
