Sign up for World Languages today


Art, music, drama and games guide the curriculum in The Language Link’s world language program. Classes are offered in Spanish, French, Mandarin and Japanese. Since the focus is on oral proficiency, classes are conducted entirely in the target language. Class sizes are small at 8 – 12 students, so that students can be fully engaged in their target language and it’s culture(s).

The Language Link teachers are creative, dynamic and love sharing their native languages and cultures with children!

Registration and payment can be made online at If you have any questions you can contact Barbara Ford at The Language Link at or call 206-708-4633.
