Program: Language Lab Academy (Spanish Immersion)

Our language school was created by certified language specialists, teachers and professors. As educators of foreign languages in school districts throughout the state of Texas, we observed first-hand the lack of academic language preparedness our students had in order to truly acquire a new language. Unfortunately, our K-12th educational structure system has failed us when it comes to teaching our students a foreign language; thereby creating a crucial gap that doesn’t expose many of our students to a new language until their high school years; well past the optimum age for a student to more easily and authentically acquire a new language. 

 

Because of the dire need to fill the language-learning gap in our society, we decided to create an opportunity that will allow students to grasp the essence of new languages and cultures while falling in love with language learning. We believe learning a new language is an art that can enrich a student’s mind and introduce them to a world of new horizons.
