Discovery Language Programs

Discovery Language Programs have been providing enrichment and in-curriculum foreign language classes to elementary and middle school students since 1992.

Discovery Language Programs was formed by an international group of highly experienced educators whose goal is to provide students and schools with the best enrichment programs in foreign language education, in a cost effective manner. The curriculum has been carefully developed by educational specialists in the field of foreign language instruction. The teaching method uses a natural, oral approach with gradual immersion. Students build oral language skills through games, songs, and hands-on activities. Reading and writing skills are introduced when age appropriate. Discovery Language Programs allow children to experience other cultures and become aware of multicultural issues. Before or after school enrichment classes are also offered that are parent-paid programs with no cost to the school or district. The in-curriculum classes are offered during regular school hours and are usually paid for by the school. Studies show that children who are bilingual or multilingual perform better in other academic areas and adjust to new situations more easily later in life. These children statistically earn higher scores in SATs (both math and verbal), show significant gains in IQ performance, and exhibit advanced mental flexibility and superiority in concept formation compared to their monolingual counterparts. Children experience enhanced cognitive development as well as sociocultural benefits. Research proves that children have a greater advantage over others if they learn a foreign language at the same time they are learning their primary language – the second language will be simultaneously stored neatly and subconsciously in the same area of the brain. Children are not confused by learning additional languages, despite the propensity for this in adults – their brains create separate and unique neural pathways for each language. With frequent, repetitive exposure any child will be able to speak with familiarity and no accent. Why no accent with Discovery Foreign Language Instructions? A learning window begins to close at 6 years of age, and by the time a child reaches his twelfth year he may no longer be able to speak without an accent. A famous example of this phenomenon is the case of Henry Kissinger. When he arrived in the United States as a boy, Henry was 12 years old and his younger brother was 10. Henry has retained a strong accent whereas his brother has none at all. Starting a linguistic program early is the key – Discovery Foreign Language Instructions !

Mission: Discovery Language Programs is a non-profit educational organization that provides foreign language enrichment programs to young students from Kindergarten to 8th Grade. We provide a fully developed, authentic, and highly qualified curriculum designed for English speaking children who have the desire to learn SPANISH, FRENCH, GERMAN, ITALIAN, POLISH, and now also MANDARIN. Discovery Language Programs have been providing enrichment and in-curriculum foreign language classes to elementary and middle school students in the Chicago area since 1992.

The Advantages of Learning a Foreign Language at a Young Age

There are numerous lifelong mental, social and even professional benefits to learning a foreign language at a young age. Children who continuously study other languages have often been shown to think in a more complex manner than youths who only speak their native tongue. They also are often more open and prepared to accept the customs of other cultures

Studying foreign languages has been shown to have a positive effect on mental development, particularly in young people, and an enhanced overall intellectual growth. Research shows that studying other languages at a young age can improve critical thinking skills as well as strengthen the use and understanding of a child's native tongue. It has been proven that students who continuously take foreign language courses score higher on standardized tests, like the SAT and ACT, with each additional year of study.

Studying a foreign language early in life exposes children to other cultures--with different values, language patterns and ways of expressing themselves--in a way they never would have experienced had they not taken up the subject. By gaining the ability to communicate with people from other areas of the world at an early age, children become more interested in, as well as accepting of, ways of life that differ from their own.

Learning a foreign language at a young age gives students an advantage in becoming successful in their chosen careers later in life. Mastering a foreign language will also increase a candidate's chances in landing a desired job because she will be able to communicate with more people from other areas of the world, and corporations view this skill as a real asset.
