What is Lango?

Lango was established on the belief that every American child should learn a second language. Frustrated by the lack of options to teach our own kids another language (and having met many other families with the same concern), we set out to create a program that would teach kids new languages in a way that […]

Welcome to Lango Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan

Children’s language programs are rapidly gaining in popularity as parents realize that teaching a second language to their kids helps enhance their cognitive development, resulting in better grades and higher test scores later in life. Parents are also drawn to increasing their children’s cultural awareness to help them succeed in our multi-cultural society.

At Lango, we agree that kids in the U.S. are in severe need of quality language programs. But more important than the developmental edges that kids acquire when learning another language, is the simple value of exposure to other ways of communicating, understanding and ultimately living. The lessons other cultures can teach us is conveyed in their languages, and we believe that by introducing kids to new cultures we can help build a stronger future for our world.

Of course, learning a language is a lifelong endeavor. Learners who start early are most likely to gain benefits ranging from cross-functional cognitive development to accent-free pronunciation. And young learners who then stick with language acquisition throughout their lives through classes, interaction with native speakers at home and travel to other countries are sure to achieve fluency and to reap its many rewards.

Kids learn Chinese, Spanish or French with language classes in Brooklyn schools.
At Lango your child will learn another language, make developmental strides,  explore other cultures and make new friends. Our highly engaging language  classes use music, games, art, and stories to teach kids new languages.

Parent Testimonials

We are very pleased with the teacher and the class. Trip re-named his doggie Cosmo :) We have been involved in other classes and in comparison this teacher is great, animated, uses every chance she can get to introduce new words, and is wonderfully not bothered by all the distractions.

My daughter started to attend the class when she was 18 months old. From day one, Bei Yi was a standout. She was teaching with enthusiasm and kindness while leading children to discipline in mastering the language. Bei Yi never missed an opportunity to acknowledge when a child did well. Juliana took an instant liking to Bei Yi; the progress she was making under Bei Yi’s supervision was evident. Thanks to Bei Yi, Juliana (age three) understands when Bei Yi speaks to her in Chinese, knows actively dozens of Chinese words, and starts to create sentences in that language.

My wife and I are very pleased with the services/classes that you provide and for your efforts to ascertain that the lessons are aligned with everyday conversational Spanish.

– Ramsey, Caleb’s dad

Beckham is really learning and loving Spanish class!! He loves to count, and now does it in Spanish too! He can probably count to at least 100 in Spanish with a little occasional prompting!

– Jocelyn

My girls love this really dynamic class! The music and games are fun, the teaching style is lively and entertaining. A great find.

– Susie, mom of Chloe and Maddie

I would like to say that this has been an amazing experience for Isis as she was the one who wanted to pursue this language for a selfless reason – to better communicate with a shy Chinese friend who doesn’t speak English. She has been attending Lango class for two semesters and is always looking forward to it. I would recommend the program to other moms as the teacher has done a wonderful job. Thanks for all your support and encouragement!

– Lisa, Isis’s mom

Over the last 6 years of kids, I have been to a lot of Mandarin classes, and this one is particularly modern and play based with fun music and is surprisingly one of the few I have found in Park Slope.

– Susie

Our daughter Olivia loves her Lango Tot and Parent Mandarin class. Our teacher Bei Yi is so engaged and energetic she makes learning language a lot of fun. If only my language classes were this much fun when I was a kid !
