Programs

Little Language League is delighted to offer our ShineImmersionlanguage programs in Westchester county New York and Fairfield county, Connecticut. We make hundreds of Little Language League children SHINE each week, providing them with both academic excellence and the literacy skills needed for proficiency in learning a foreign language.

Our Spanish, French, Italian, Mandarin, and English Language & Literacy programs are taught by native-speaking educators who immerse the children in the target language with ShineImmersion™, our proven proprietary international curriculum which incorporates theater and the arts as well as sound educational practices. It is the result of years of research and development and reflects the Little Language League’s commitment to providing the most innovative and effective language education available for children. To reinforce learning, the Little Language League brings the learning home with ShineImmersion™ workbooks, books, and course materials.
