family embraces language
. In our home, you'll hear mostly
Italian and of course English, but also Spanish,
French and Portuguese. Our 15-month-old is already speaking
her first words, and they are mostly Italian - she calls the potty
the "Ciao, poo-poo!". Una bambina intelligente
Kids soak up languages like
, and if you want to give them an amazing gift, give
them the gift of another language and culture. Best to do so when
they are young enough to fully embrace the accents and rhythms
of a foreign language.
I am so happy to offer your family the opportunity to learn another
language! Multilingual Chicago, an amazing language school in our
great neighborhood of Logan Square, will offer one lucky reader
a month of classes (a value of $95). The Winter/Spring
term starts the week of Jan. 10th, but you can redeem (or
enroll!) at any time). Classes for both children and adults include
Spanish, Spanish Music (Fine Arts for Tots), French, Italian,
Mandarin, Hindi and Korean. Check out their classes and more at http://www.multilingualchicago.com/
