CRLC & BH-BL Offer German, Spanish Language Classes for K-5 Students

Capital Region Language Center (CRLC), established in 2003, is a local, woman-owned business, offering extracurricular language programs for kids, with the objective of giving children a foundation in a foreign language through interactive activities.  CRLC believes that exposing children to a new language at a young age leads to great pronunciation, a solid base for future study, and a life-long love of language and culture. Through CRLC’s Language Enrichment and Arts Program (LEAP!), students will learn age-appropriate language skills–such as the alphabet, numbers, greetings, courtesies, colors, shapes, and thematic vocabulary–through singing, movement, art, and group work.

Registration deadline is October 11. Classes will be confirmed by October 17th.
