About The LWFC

  • Nearly 50 Years of Experience

    Founded in 1973, The Language Workshop for Children has pioneered language acquisition methods unlike those offered anywhere else.

    Our teaching methods have been developed over decades of research and trials. Through collaboration with artists and musicians, we’ve created and tested our original educational materials that emphasize the use of effective visual and audio aids.

    The development of our online classes began as requests from parents, but as the participants grew in number, we realized something – our one-on-one Skype lessons were making a much bigger impact on the progress of our students – and our students LOVED them!

    Our decision to move to fully online classes has its basis in the growing popularity of online learning combined with the undeniable success of our one-on-one, instructor-led lessons.

    Internationally-recognized Techniques

    Originated by Director/Founder François Thibaut, the Thibaut Technique® teaches kids of varying ages French, Spanish, Italian, and English through methods of enriched and humorous interactive lessons.

    Our original vocabulary-building songs, visual aids, and certified, native-fluent language teachers are just a few of the ways the LWFC leads the country in children’s educational language development.

    News and media organizations nationwide have featured the Thibaut Technique® and The Language Workshop for Children, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, New York Magazine, CNN, FOX-TV, Working Mother, Better Homes & Gardens and many other parenting magazines.

  • Give Your Child the Gift of a Second Language

    Your child’s academic possibilities expand when he or she is able to understand and communicate in a second language. Children who grow up bilingual are better prepared for both educational and professional advancements.

    “Students who have at least four years of a foreign
    language tend to score higher on both the math and verbal
    portions of the SATs.” – College Board

    Through our online programs, your child can enjoy and benefit from our engaging and memorable avenues of language acquisition which will last him or her a lifetime!
