Description

Bilingual Birdies 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!

There are so many benefits to exposing a child to a second language before the age of five and 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

20200430_113910~2Marisol LaBoy, our seasoned outstanding Grow and Sing Studios Kindermusik educator and Bilingual Birdies licensee leads our Bilingual Birdies in Orlando. She is a native speaker and her love for the Spanish language and Latin culture makes us proud to have her leading the bilingual fun this Spring! Her online zoom classes have been an absolute hit, and she can’t wait to continue. Marisol creates an unforgettable cultural experience while introducing Spanish vocabulary through song, dance, and puppetry.

Myla Birdie, the bilingual birdies mascot is a bright yellow bird puppet who joins each session to promote social-emotional development while teaching new concepts and models positive behavior for the children. Her other bird friends make an appearance too! Our goal is to teach 15 new words in each class through exploratory play with super hip music at the root of it all! And, Bilingual Birdies is so much more than learning another language. We strive to encourage cross-cultural awareness, compassion, and curiosity in every class. Your children are learning to celebrate diversity by embracing a new language and culture. Just imagine the lasting impact this will have as they grow up to be even more open-minded adults!

Bilingual 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 and has become the premiere foreign language and music program for preschoolers, toddlers and even infants. 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 and culture, and of course sharing all of that with children.
