Activating the part of your brain used when learning a second language is an important way to preserve memory and slow down signs of aging. Learning a second language at any age is truly "memory medicine". A multilingual lifestyle is a great way to stay vibrant!
According to a recent Good Housekeeping magazine article (June 2019), 'Boost Your Brainpower', one of the best ways to improve your memory is to study a new language! Studying another language at any age can "promote thinking skills, increase mental agility and delay the aging of the brain."

Elementary school children have an innate and powerful drive to learn a second language. Lessons should be exciting, rich in culture, and most of all fun! Children learn all the basic components of grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary and begin to form simple sentences from the very first lesson. Parents play a key role in nurturing their child’s linguistic development. We discuss ways to supplement your child’s language learning process at home. Using authentic materials, children are exposed to both the language and culture of their new language. They receive the foundation they need for success!
Experts in brain development research have concluded that early exposure to more than one language enhances brain power! At Lurie Language, we believe that an early start in languages is one of the best advantages you can give your child! Children of pre-school age are excellent mimics and enjoy learning a new sound system. At Lurie Language we bring languages to life! Whether in person or on Zoom, we learn through doing with authentic crafts, culture, stories, songs, games, holiday celebrations and plenty of fun. In private and small group sessions, children learn to express themselves in their new language through doing, not memorizing. We offer a comprehensive program that covers all the essentials. Kids learn words and phrases that they will use in their daily life, and most importantly, will get a head start on developing a life-long love of languages! As a parent, you play a key role in your child’s successful learning experience. We communicate regularly with parents to discuss both your child’s progress and present productive techniques to encourage language learning at home.
