The Little House of Different Cultures / La Petite Maison Française /La Casita Española ... is a home-based Language Immersion School where small groups of no more than five participants meet for wonderfully natural lessons, conducted in French or Spanish! Classes are offered to all age groups, starting with the youngest toddlers, up to their great-grandparents! Family members may attend lessons together or separately. CHILDREN enjoy creative conversations based on numerous games, as well as stories, singing, and play-acting. Although they are introduced to reading and writing as well as basic grammar, the focus is on oral communication, centered on relevant aspects of their everyday lives, such as holidays, which are celebrated in the new language, according to the tenets of the country! Since young children are so adept at understanding gestures and facial expressions, without worrying about the actual words, they absorb these naturally, until they are ready to start expressing their own thoughts in French or Spanish! They learn while having fun! ADULTS enjoy different types of conversations, while sitting around the table and sipping tea. Since they may find many opportunities to study the grammar at home, only short sessions are offered to concentrate on the intricacies of the languages. The focus is on oral communication, since it is a skill which requires group practice, and the help of an experienced leader. The small groups allow for relaxed, non-intimidating sessions, with people who are interested in different activities and enjoy sharing their ideas about various topics --- in the new languages, of course! Students learn a lot of vocabulary from each other, and develop a feel for the languages, while having a good time! Anyone who has ever learned another tongue, knows how funny conversations can be sometimes, among those who are still in the process of learning! People look forward to these delightful sessions, and progress naturally...
