pandatree.com foreign language lessons for kids


My kids have always wanted to learn a second language but the truth is without knowing the language myself it's very hard to teach.

I wanted to share with you guys a way that your children can learn a second language without you having to learn it yourself. 

Yay, right? 

Sorry, I don't mean that bad, but you'll know this here mama ain't got time to learn another language. I'm already fluent in southern belle, toddler jibberish, teenage body language, HTML, and SMS! Ugh.. I don't have time to try and dig up what I can slightly remember from 11th grade Spanish!          

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PANDATREE.COM

I recently found PandaTree.com, and my kids loved it! PandaTree.com offers online foreign language sessions for children of all ages. Currently, they offer two languages, Mandarin and Spanish, each hosting a variety of experience levels. Whether you're a beginner or not they can find a lesson for you.

PandaTree.com's lessons are taught via a real live tutor who is fluent in the language you pick. Session times are either 25 or50 minutes and include one on one video chat between your child and the tutor.

Last week my kids had their very first sessions with a sweet and polite tutor named, Gabriela. Gabriela is one of the Spanish instructors and was so pleasant to deal with. One thing I'd like to point out about Gabriela is that she was very patient with my daughter who struggles with comprehension. 

Jack, my almost 11 year old, was a little nervous to talk on video but Gabriela made him feel very relaxed and comfortable by discussing his interest; the ones I had filled out prior to booking his session.

My kids were very disappointed after the session ended, they wanted more!

Yay for happy kids and some free time for this here mama! 

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT PANDATREE.COM

PandaTree.com was founded by Kristina Klausen, who was looking for a way for her Mandarin Immersion students to get additional practice speaking Mandarin – something she couldn’t help them with. After finding a tutor in Beijing to do sessions by Skype, Kristina realized there was an opportunity to help other families by offering a safe and effective way for kids to learn foreign languages. PandaTree.com was born in 2015, and now offers Mandarin and Spanish lessons for kids ages 5-15.

PandaTree.com’s mission is to make it convenient and fun for all kids to learn a foreign language. While most of the world is bilingual, according to ACTFL data, only 18.5% of students in the US are learning a second language in school, something experts say can undermine the United States’ competitiveness in a globally connected world. Research shows there are tremendous benefits for students from learning a second language, including improved skills in their native language, higher scores on standardized tests, greater cultural awareness and understanding, increased empathy and out-of-the-box thinking, more career opportunities, and protection from age-related cognitive declines.

PandaTree.com uses its proprietary PandaTree.com Live! video platform to offer kids one-on-one foreign language lessons in Mandarin and Spanish. During each lesson, the tutors and students can see each other, as well as content the tutor shares, which is tailored to the student’s level, interests and rate of learning.
