Teaching Methodology:

Photo of Language Lessons For Kids in San Mateo, CAOur programs' methodology can be defined as "easy and active immersion". Under this concept children learn the language using simple language constructions to describe an actual situation. "I am playing with a ball" the child may say while he or she is actually playing with a ball.

The immersion approach to teaching a second language maximizes the time students get to practice the language they are learning without being slowed down by having to translate what they hear and speak. The central characteristic of immersion is the teaching of language, content, and culture without the use of the student's first language.

Our Philosophy:


- Developing Emotional, Intellectual and Social Independence
Universe of Colors is a center built on the philosophy that children learn, develop and grow through fun and creative activities. Our programs are aimed at developing the emotional, intellectual and social independence of the child in a creative, warm and stimulating environment.

- Small Class Sizes
Because of our small class sizes, each child's needs are taken into account from an emotional, intellectual and social standpoint. This lets them develop with a new language at their own pace in a caring, immersive environment, all while having fun!

- Learn Through Play
We fundamentally believe children learn by doing, interacting, and expressing. As such, our programs are structured to make play an educational process and an effective tool for language, social and intellectual development, all while having fun.
