Foreign Language Instruction

The Benefits of Language Tutoring
Children who have studied a foreign language in the elementary grades achieve higher scores on standardized testing, and actually are found to have a better understanding of their native language. In addition, children who study a foreign language show greater cognitive development than many of their peers.
BrainTrust foreign language tutors focus upon providing only positive feedback and selectively correct to achieve a relaxed learning environment.
