SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH SHOWS that learning a foreign language comes naturally for children when they start at an early age. Our program is specifically designed to promote language learning for children from ages 0 to 6 – the time when their brains are hard-wired to learn up to 3 languages with ease. At Little Pim, we believe that all children deserve to learn a second language.
Inspired by her own bilingual childhood, our founder Julia Pimsleur (daughter of Dr. Paul Pimsleur, who created the Pimsleur Method), wanted to give her young son the same opportunity to learn a foreign language. When she discovered that there were no high quality education materials for teaching toddlers a foreign language, she set out to create them herself. She was uniquely qualified given her background as an award-winning filmmaker, language teacher and mother.
Little Pim’s program supports foreign language learning which multiple studies have shown improves memory and analytic abilities and strengthens problem solving skills. The program helps children acquire a new vocabulary and a near-native accent. Our unique Entertainment Immersion Method® immerses children completely in a foreign language.
