Welcome to the Language and Laughter Studio!

LLS is a French and Italian language center and immersion French pre-school located in the heart of downtown Brooklyn, New York. Since 2006 we have been leaders in progressive language education centered in arts integration, imagination, child-driven projects, and play-based learning.

French Mini-Maternelle

For many years Brooklyn families who value progressive and play-based French education have sought out the pre-school program at LLS. Our program nurtures children and provides them with the building blocks needed for a lifetime of learning and critical thinking while exposing them to the benefits of speaking a foreign language in a supportive environment. Learning of many fields happens in French allowing for organic and natural absorption of the language. In addition we pride ourselves in creating an environment of inclusivity and awareness of others and many cultures and values.

It is one of our great hopes that our son's education going forward can aspire to the joy and love and learning that is his every day at LLS.

French & Italian Classes

The high quality of language instruction provides an opportunity for children to socialize and to develop their language skills in the French language in a joyful way that ensures a lifelong interest and passion for language. We offer French daytime, after-school, and Saturday classes for children 6 months to 12-years-old. We are known for our small classes driven by child’s interests and passions. Our gifted educators are native speakers with vast knowledge and experience in bilingual education as well as arts, math, and science integration.     

My son C. is thriving in Kindergarten and that’s all thanks to the 2 wonderful years that he spent at LLS. Pascale and her teachers created a nurturing environment where he was able to grow and develop. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for the care that they gave to my son and to my niece who is currently at LLS.

Summer Day Camps: French & Italian

French Summer Camp for children ages 4 to 10-years-old has been an anchor at LLS since 2007. Take the opportunity to immerse your child in French language and culture during one to five weeks of camp. Children will learn about and engage with the language through visual arts, sports, theatre music, science, cooking and more.

Since 2015 French Summer Mini-Camp has been a wonderful way for babies 1-year-old to children 4-years-old to interact and explore in French five days a week alongside a caregiver for one to four weeks of summer camp.

Our daughter attended LLS for two years. I wish she could have attended forever. We really cannot say enough good things about LLS. The program is perfect -- it is intellectually engaging, but also fun for the children. The teachers are so caring and do everything possible to make sure the kids are happy and comfortable. Pascale is an amazing resource. She is very involved in the classroom and so knowledgeable about children in general and bilingual education in particular. And our daughter learned French! She still asks to attend the summer camp every year, and always has a great time.
