Hola! Bienvenido a nuestro estudio.

Bilingual Birdies Orlando is a super fun foreign language and music program where we teach basic vocabulary and short phrases in Spanish through music, dance, and puppetry. It is similar to Kindermusik in that the root of the entire class is based in music. In Bilingual Birdies, the music is very hip and upbeat which evokes positive emotion and triggers memory. This makes learning new words a joyful experience. The primary goal of a Bilingual Birdies class is to teach new vocabulary in a foreign language, celebrate diversity, and have fun while learning!

NEW UNITS EVERY FOUR WEEKS SO VOCABULARY BUILDING GROWS AND GROWS!

There are so many benefits to exposing a child to a second language before the age of five. The list includes:
  1. Advanced cognitive development
  2. Stronger executive function
  3. Heightened sensitivity for other languages and cultures to become a more open-minded adult
  4. Increased opportunities in global job market

BirdiesInAPartyBilingual Birdies was first started in New York City 12 years ago by Sarah Farzam, a trilingual educator and graduate from UCLA. The program has been featured on CNN, NY Times, Univision, BBC, and the Today Show. It has also become the premiere foreign language and music program for preschoolers and toddlers. The curriculum was created in collaboration with outstanding music therapists from NYU, the best musicians in New York from all over the world, and PhDs from the World Arts and Culture department from UCLA. Bilingual Birdies licensed educators are incredible bilingual early educators who have a genuine love for music, language, culture, and of course sharing all of that with children.

Since the back end office system we use with Kindermusik International was created for an in person, ongoing experience there are a few things in the following sign up form we weren’t able to customize. So, please be assured of the following:
1. Online classes STARTED on August 31, 2020 but goes much more often and longer than Monday at 11am and 5pm since Kindermusik Virtual+ is included in your enrollment package. We were forced to list something in order to make enrollment possible. You’ll have unlimited access to any and all broadcasts!
2. We only have permission to broadcast live. Recording music by Kindermusik goes against our license agreement with Kindermusik International, as well as child protection laws.
