1/17: swim meet. Allow extra time to park. The Purple School teaches fun songs and uses games to teach second languages. Our classes are engaging and interactive. Kids learn vocabulary and basic conversation from 31 child-centered categories of learning, including animals, basic conversation, body parts, colors, and verbs (which are the five core categories of learning). There are 150 items to learn in each of our 31 categories and the first session usually focuses on items 1-10 in each of the five core categories. By the end of one session, kids will understand when someone tells them to “please wash your hands” and should know how to say “Mom, please pass the duck." Other categories of learning include bugs/insects, cars and vehicles, food, and vegetables (and also each have 150 items to learn!).
