For those of you not familiar with Language Stars, one of our twelve Chicagoland locations is located right here at 117 E. Northwest Highway in Barrington!
We offer a variety of foreign language programs for kids from 12 months to 10 years of age in Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Mandarin Chinese. These aren’t your typical classes or language lessons — this is play-based education in a full immersion foreign language setting with native speaking teachers from over 20 countries, and amazing results.
Classes meet a minimum of once per week for 60 minute (1-3 years) or 85 minute (3-10 years) sessions. Language Stars’ maximum class size is only 10 students, so that children can get one-on-one attention from their instructor and be challenged at their own individual levels. In the summer time, some classes for ages 3+ are also held outdoors at Citizen’s Park, to give children that true fun-filled summer camp environment.
Studies have shown the importance learning language as young as possible. Language Stars believes in the “window of opportunity” (from birth to adolescence) where a child’s brain is most hardwired to learn language. In a fun and stimulating setting, children are able to easily absorb a second language in the same way they are absorbing English – this means no memorization, no translation, just intuitive integration of the language. Whether your child needs extra reinforcement in their current language of study, or wants to try something brand new, Language Stars can help your child have fun, gain confidence, and make tremendous strides in his or her target language.

About the Author
Brittany Gignac is the Director of Language Stars in Barrington and says her love of the French language led her to this children’s foreign language school.
“I’m very passionate about languages myself. I love kids and I love languages so put the two together and this is the place for me to be.” Brittany majored in French at Chicago’s DePaul University and lived in Paris before coming to work for Language Stars. “When I came in for an interview, I sat in a Mandarin Chinese class for four-year-olds. When they started speaking in full sentences, it was like a magic show. And I knew this was a company I wanted to work for.”
