Welcome to the Language
and Laughter Studio!

We are a multicultural French language center and immersion French pre-school located in the heart of downtown Brooklyn, New York. Since 2005 we have been leaders in progressive language education that is centered in arts integration, imagination, child-driven projects, and play based learning. If you are looking to expose your baby or toddler to the French language in a nurturing way filled with songs, stories, and art--look no further than our morning classes. If your child is a native French speaker or if your family is interested to learn French, consider one of our programs - academic, interactive, creative, hands-on, or theatrical after-school classes. All of our classes are enriched with our philosophy of nurturing the child and supporting them as they begin to explore, question, and create in the world with consideration of others and others experiences.

Learning of many fields happens in French allowing for organic and natural absorption of the language.
