Now in its 35th year, the Hong Kong Institute of Languages is launching a branch dedicated to teaching young learners. Read on to find out more.

Since 1985, the Hong Kong Institute of Languages (HKIL) has been providing children, teens, adults and schools with the lifelong asset of languages.

Language courses at HKIL are available in French, English, German, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese. They’re delivered via private lessons and small groups, and taught by qualified native speaking teachers. Flexible learning modes have recently been introduced, including home tuition and online learning.

Now, the language school is launching the Hong Kong Kids Academy, a specialised branch for children. In the words of one of HKIL’s founders, Dominique Chasset: “It’s well known that the earlier one learns a language, the better. Children learn a second or third language very much like they learnt their own; by hearing, playing and taking part in all kinds of activities in the target language. Because they’re so young, they don’t even realise they’re in a language lesson; the language acquisition takes place naturally and spontaneously.”
