Why Choose Yak Academy?


- Fun, Play-Based Approach
We believe there is a right way to aid language acquisition. When children have to understand to “survive” (participate) in an immersion environment, they acquire chunks of useful language. This becomes even easier when preschool curriculum is presented in a fun, play‐based fashion just like in an English‐only setting.

- Believing in Children
We believe that children are intelligent. At a young age, they know what they like and learn better if the content being taught relates to their interests. This allows a preschooler’s natural love of learning to take over, encourages feelings of competency and increases the probability of classroom success.

- No-Pressure Environment
We believe in a no pressure environment. In an effort to inspire success, we create a feeling of “home” in our facilities. When children feel safe and nurtured in their environment, they have fun, express themselves openly, and most importantly, learn.

Qualified & Experienced Instructors:

Our amazing instructors are more than an intelligent, interesting and globally aware group of native speakers. They are hard workers on a mission to create a climate of trust and respect from the child’s point of view in a “nose to nose, knee to knee” kind of way. We also provide Spanish and French language immersion classes.

Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Programs for Kids Ages 1-10:

- "Parent & Me", "Preschool Program" and once-a-week General Enrichment Classes
- Taught by native speaking instructors through game, music, song and art.
- Spanish & French classes also available                

Parent Testimonial:

“My daughter is living proof that it is never too early to introduce a second language.  I started her in the Yak Academy classes when she was only one year old and could only utter a handful of English words. 

Now she is two and a half years old and has learned more Chinese than I ever did my entire childhood taking the 'traditional' Chinese classes.  What's so wonderful is that Yak Academy makes Chinese so easy and fun.  My daughter is becoming bilingual in English and Chinese without her even realizing it.  To her, it's just a chance to go to class and play with friends."
- Cathy, mother of Caleb, Katara & Wyatt
