Froggin Learning Center started operations almost 20 years ago in Monterrey, Mexico, teaching English as a second language to children. After several years of study and preparation the first Learning Center was opened in 2005 and by the year of 2010 the franchise was developed. Today there are 13 learning centers in Mexico dedicated to teach English as a second language and we have presence in more than 8 cities including Cancun, Merida, Monterrey, Colima etc. The Learning Center in Austin was opened to offer Spanish as a second language.
Why learn a second language at an early age?
At birth, the newborn’s brain is not fully developed. In the first six years of life, the brain grows dramatically in size and complexity which is the optimal developmental stage to introduce a second language. Children enjoy phonics and have great ability to imitate sounds if presented in a funny way. The younger the child, the easier it is to learn a second language with a more correct accent. Learning a new language promotes creativity in children and increases their self-esteem. Experts have shown that really bilingual children consistently score higher in intellectual ability tests than their monolingual counterparts.
Why is learning Spanish beneficial for my children?
Spanish is the second language most used in international communications. In the U.S., the Hispanic Market is the fastest growing segment. Understanding and fluently speaking Spanish opens vast, new windows of opportunities to succeed in today’s world.
