LinguaMites Multilingual Education is pioneering multilingualism in young children. We believe that language is part of life and cannot be taught as a subject. We provide environments of necessity for young children to acquire additional languages from a young age when they can truly maximise their potential.
Backed by years of research and development our LinguaMites Trilingual preschool model is the first of it’s kind in South Africa! LinguaMites, based in the heart of Ferndale, Johannesburg, is not a language programme, it is a typical pre-school for children 1 – 5 years old in three languages. The children spend time in all three languages every day (Chinese, English and isiZulu). Our students learn these languages through consistent and deliberate teaching methods and lots and lots of fun. They do this while learning all the other skills required in a pre-school education – fine and gross motor skills, social development, and foundational teaching in number, shape and colour which is the beginnings of reading. Our small classes are taught by qualified and experienced teachers who are also native speakers of the different languages.
Through our LinguaMites Family Chinese and isiZulu classes, we support any family wishing to raise a multilingual child. We work with parents and children together to develop an interest in the target language (either isiZulu/Chinese) and help the family unit get excited about learning the language. This takes place in the form of Once-a-week Family Classes (Chinese) or Monthly isiZulu Workshops for Homeschool families in various locations around Johannesburg. These sessions are:
- Get you speaking straight away
- Keeps you motivated to practice the language
- Suitable for families with toddlers and children up to 9 years old
Our ZuluMites programmes focuses on isiZulu for the future generation. We offer Caregiver training for isiZulu nannies to become the your child’s Zulu home tutor. We offer Afternoon Activity Programmes teaching isiZulu through interactive Cooking & Baking, Arts & Crafts, Sport and Music classes. And we offer Teacher training and isiZulu resource kits specially designed around play and practical themes.
We value language learning as a tool for relationship-building, for the numerous benefits to a child’s cognitive development, and to leverage the growing opportunities of a global economy.
