Mandarin and Spanish Language Immersion School
Traditional and Montessori Programs
Beibei Amigos is a Phoenix, Arizona Language Immersion School. We develop and nurture young children preparing for their future by giving them an advantage of reading, writing and speaking in the world’s most spoken languages, Mandarin, Spanish and English. We teach young children when their brains are hard wiring for languages from birth to seven years old. We believe that children learn in many different ways, therefore we offer both traditional and Montessori language programs for children one to five years old.
Why Language Immersion?
The world is changing, and if we want to give our children an advantage for their future we need to think ahead. One skill that will give them leverage in the future job market is languages. If they can read, write and speak in the three most spoken languages in the world they are going to have a competency that no other children possess. Research shows that students gain additional cognitive, academic and employment benefits. Fully proficient bilinguals outperform monolinguals in the areas of divergent thinking, pattern recognition, and problem solving.
