Who are we?
Langmobile is a Quebec company that offers children language learning in the form of workshops. When Langmobile opened their doors in September 2002, around 125 students joined the program. Today, the company averages 3000 students every year. In addition to on-site workshops in schools and daycares, there are three Langmobile learning centres in Montreal, Saint-Lambert and Saint-Bruno. Langmobile offers a wide array of original activities like yoga, music, Zumba and cooking, offered in several languages.
Langmobile was the brainchild of Nicole Bianco and Johanne Desjardins, two mothers who are passionate about education. With a combined 30 years of teaching experience and a shared entrepreneurial spirit, these two devoted women have made Langmobile the success it is today.
American-born Nicole has lived in Canada for over 25 years, and attributes her development of the Langmobile language learning method to the fact that her own children learned several languages easily, as if by magic. Living in a country where two official languages are required in the education system was a source of inspiration and played a key role in making Langmobile a uniquely successful approach in language learning.
“Quebec was the ideal place to test the Langmobile method. We spent 15 years perfecting our approach to language learning, simply by being with children every day! Designing programs where children learn while having fun is what I love doing, and it’s not just in theory – it’s a practice that really works effectively. We have seen the results!
Born in Canada, Johanne grew up in Montreal with the dream of becoming bilingual. Her experience proves that learning another language at a young age really works. She was self-taught, and attributes her success with languages to growing up in Quebec with exposure to two official languages.
“I taught English and French in Asia for three years. When I got back to Canada in 1999, I opened a language school to teach English to children aged 2 to 12 years old. This experience taught me important lessons that contributed to the development of Langmobile. Starting Langmobile with Nicole meant pushing my passion for language teaching even further. I feel privileged to be able to help children. I love what I do!”
Understanding language is it the ultimate brain exercise. It is one of the most effective and practical ways to increase intelligence! It is exciting news, the latest research is saying that children who speak more than one language benefits greater cognitive flexibility in solving complex problems. Knowing a second language or third language can greatly improve the life a child!
We want to be first in line to assist, support and walk along side parents in accomplishing their goals to providing their child the very best in learning languages. We believe that being a part of children’s lives is a responsibility, and Langmobile is dedicated to meeting that responsibility with excellence. Part of that is recognizing parents as an important part of educating their child.
When children participate in our programs, they explore a wide variety of techniques and approaches through play, interaction, and discovery-based learning. At the heart of our values is the belief that when a child is engaged and having fun, they will be motivated to become life long language learners!
Its all original! We have been animating workshops for children for over 15 years. Our work is our research on what works in a workshop. From this experience we have designed our own contents. We have taken the Langmobile method and developed videos and offline-tools such as music, activity pages and visual aids. Our material is designed to empower children acquiring a new language and create a fun sensory stimulating environment
Langmobile has fifteen years of experience teaching languages in the classroom and our program has been used by thousands of young students in daycares, schools, afterschool programs and summer camps. During that time we have explored a wide variety of techniques and approaches through play, interaction and discovery-based learning. We have combined this experience with up to date research on child development.
Our team is comprised of highly qualified teachers with a certain sensitivity to linguistic acquisition specific to age. Animators are trained by langmobile in all the various elements of working with children from ages 18 months to 12 years old. We take pride in our team! And assure you that they are trained responsible professionals who understand our mission is to create a Fun educational environment for children to learn Languages.
