Welcome to Children’s Language Immersion Program! CLIP was founded in Pittsburgh, PA by three moms searching for a fun and engaging language program for their young children. Knowing the advantages that come with being bilingual, they wanted to give their children an opportunity to learn a second language, but they were disappointed with the lack of in-person options close to home. While many schools and daycares in the area offer some language programs, none of them offers the intensive daily practice a person needs to become bilingual.
Research consistently shows that competence in multiple
languages and their cultures enables individuals to communicate better with those of different backgrounds and in a variety of settings, and to develop deeper insight. Being bilingual opens doors to a world of highly sought-after and higher-paying career opportunities in a global workforce. Immersion education expands cultural awareness and understanding, and creates more empathetic and knowledgeable world citizens. The goal at CLIP is to provide a safe and positive environment for children to engage in language-learning skills.
Apr. 6th - 13th
Thus CLIP was born. CLIP is a language immersion program for children from birth through 5th grade. Instructors utilize both an innovative and engaging curriculum that will excite students about learning the target language and its culture.
