WorldSpeak™ provides programs for children in a second language acquisition during the window of opportunity for language learning, during their early years of life.
The idea of raising bilingual children is appealing for more and more families these days, and growing up with more than one language has many advantages in today’s World. There are many reasons for a child to learn new languages. Some parents are interested in preparing their children for life in today’s global economy where it is important to know more than one language. For others it is wonderful intellectual stimulation that learning a language provides. But the most important thing of all is the fact that learning other languages makes children grow up respecting different cultures and people around them, makes them kind to others and interested in different cultures and customs.
Experience of the Founder
Angelika Getmanchouk, the owner and founder of WorldSpeak, started teaching foreign languages during her graduate study in SONY at Stony Brook, NY.
Mrs. Getmanchouk earned two Master’s Degrees: MA in Teaching Second Languages (SUNY at Stony Brook, New York) and MA in Journalism (MGU, Moscow State University).
Mrs. Getmanchouk developed a unique teaching method based on milestones in children development. Her education in Child Psychology and Child Development provided the basic ground for designing WorldSpeak method. She came up with unique set of tools to teach young children second language early. This method and tools were tested and improved over many years of experience.
Since the school was open, WorldSpeak™ had more then 3000 students on site and in numerous outreach after-school programs. Language classes were offered in 16 different languages.
More than 30 private and public school have offered WorldSpeak after-school classes in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Malibu, and South Bay area.
