Rainbow of Languages celebrates grand opening

The Rainbow of Languages, a new language immersion program for toddlers and young children in Greenwich will open its doors Friday, July 25, with a grand opening.

The center is located at 45 East Putnam Suite 111 which is on the second floor and there is plenty of parking in the back.

The program is described as the creation and passion of two moms with extensive experience teaching foreign languages and academic backgrounds in linguistics and education. They said they were inspired by bringing up their two six-year-old daughters and decided to launch a language immersion program for infants. At the center, children might sing a song in French, play a game in Mandarin, tell a story in Russian, or perform in Spanish. It is all part of an original curriculum developed by Rainbow of Languages’ educational team based on expert findings about language acquisition and effective techniques.

Children are engaged in a mix of games, music, storytelling, drama acting, arts and crafts and other activities conducted in their language of choice to help them understand, keep the energy high, and make language learning fun. There is one rule though: There’s no English allowed, unless it is, of course, the English as a second language class.

The teaching system is based on a multi-sensory methodology of learning through verbal, visual and tactile association. The language program builds the foundation for language fluency and mastery of both native and non-native students. Age and level appropriate classes are grouped to ensure structured, fun and stimulating lessons that easily progress to higher levels of learning. Traditional fairytales, poetry and music create the cultural foundation of each class. Class size is five students maximum.

In addition to the language immersion program, Rainbow of Languages is offering Magic Carpet Nights each Friday and Saturday. These are three-hour workshops from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., where participants explore a different country each week. This travel around the world workshop is conducted in English, so any five to eight-year-old child can join. The travel itinerary may include adventure activities, games, arts and crafts, dramatic play, storytelling and a movie.

The center is looking forward to seeing travelers in pajamas every Friday and Saturday. The first trip is scheduled for opening night, Friday, July 25. Seats are limited; only six travelers are allowed on board per trip. There is currently an opening promotional deal: buy two workshops for $40 each and get one free.
