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.

Our highly engaging language classes use music, games, art, and stories to teach kids new languages. We also offer Mandarin Chinese and French language instruction for children.

Language programs are rapidly gaining popularity as parents realize that teaching a 2nd language to their kids helps enhance their cognitive development, resulting in higher test scores later in life. Parents are also increasing their children's cultural awareness to help them succeed in a multi-cultural society.

At Lango, we agree that kids in the US are in severe need of quality language programs. But more important than the developmental edges that kids acquire when learning another language, is the simple value of exposure to other ways of communicating, understanding and living.
