Weekly classes

It’s never too early to start learning a second language, and the cognitive and social benefits are endless. We offer classes, immersions, and drop-ins for kids ages 1 to preteen. Parents can join their tots in the classroom, and big kids get some alone time – giving you time to relax over organic tea in our sunny café.

Tutoring

We help students reach their goals—for school, exam prep, or a more personalized class experience. Our flexible tutoring sessions are available in packages at our West Bucktown center or at an offsite location near you. Find more information on our Tutoring page.

Summer and holiday camps

School may be out, but the discoveries continue at Multilingual Kids’ camps. From morning until afternoon, they’ll play games, make crafts or prepare food while immersed in another culture. So much fun, they won’t even know they’re learning.  More details on our camp page.

Birthday parties

Looking for a fun and affordable way to celebrate your child’s birthday?  Or maybe you just don’t want 50 people in your home.  Either way, consider our birthday party packages.

Schools and partnerships

We bring our engaging teachers, custom lesson plans and years of experience to schools, day care centers, museums and park districts across Chicagoland. Click below for information about our existing programs, or contact us to find out how to bring our programs to you!  And yes – we’re a certified CPS vendor.
