The Importance of Early Language Learning
Young children possess a great capacity to absorb and learn language. Experts estimate by age 12 humans already begin to lose the ability to hear and say new sounds. By taking advantage of the window of opportunity between birth and adolescence children are able to optimize their learning potential, speak secondary languages with a native accent, and absorb gramatical structure naturally.

About Small Talk Language Academy
Small Talk Language Academy was founded to fill an unmet need in Rhode Island and Southern New England for children to obtain early foreign language learning in a multicultural setting. Our fundamental objective is to offer a quality foreign language program that will prepare children to become engaged global citizens of the 21st century.
About The Language Workshop For Children
Small Talk Language Academy has partnered with The Language Workshop For Children to offer students the opportunity to learn additional languages and cultures in a fun and engaging immersion environment. The Language Workshop For Children is the country's leader in children's educational play.
