The Language Project was established on the belief that all languages should be within every child’s reach. We firmly believe that bilingualism is an essential skill in today’s world and will continue to be an imperative in the future. TLP is preparing students nationwide with their innovative play-based methodology, creating a relaxed and fun environment where student’s acquire a new language in an easy and fun way through games, songs and stories as well as individual and collective activities. TLP-kids is a professional team concerned with the education of our children. Enthusiasm, professionalism, and great pride in their work are just a few of the characteristics that make our team of teachers stand out.
