  • What’s the secret to our internationally recognized language classes at The Language Workshop for Children?

    The Language Workshop for Children’s Director/Founder François Thibaut invented the enriched play Thibaut Technique® method to teach French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and English to kids. Since 1973 his internationally-recognized LWFC has offered stimulating language lessons for babies, toddlers and elementary grades. Original music, vocabulary-building songs, language immersion, festive visual aids, action games and native-fluent language teachers are why the LWFC is the country’s leader in children’s language educational play. As Thibaut says, “Children remember the words that make them happy”.

  • Each Class is Limited to 3-5 Students

    • “… There’s a world of difference between teaching young children a language with methods designed specifically and exclusively for them, such as the Thibaut Technique … and teaching them with methods adapted from lessons for adults.”

      Associated Press
    • “I see how eager the children in the class are to learn. For them, learning Spanish is play. I am a physician, and I know that the brain develops fastest when children learn language early. They grasp concepts easier and their pronunciation is perfect. That is why I am sending my children to Spanish for Tots.”

      Dr. Wilczeski
    • “At French for Tots in Manhattan, François Thibaut teaches children how to speak French. His love of the children and enthusiasm for what he is teaching is legendary among New York parents.”

      The New York Times
    • “It is the only program of its type that approaches language so naturally at such a young age. Mr. Thibaut really cares about the children. It shows, and they can feel it. Mr. Thibaut makes sure there are no competitive feelings in the class. Everyone gets a chance to excel.”

      Mrs. Nerlino
    • “Four year old Alexandra D. talks to her toy animals in Japanese. At snack time, she spontaneously shifts to French. Lindsay S. at age 8 shows an ability to carry on a basic conversation in French without the slightest English accent. Both have been students since the age of 2 at The Language Workshop for Children.”

      Better Homes & Gardens
    • “Having tried two other “french playgroups for children,” I can say with no hesitation that there is no program that can possibly compare with the LWFC. This is the only school that has exposed my child to another language in a way that she can retain.”
