LWFC founder François Thibaut was the first educator to offer the structured playgroup method to teach languages to children. His LWFC is the only children's language program offering the proprietary Thibaut Technique, a proven method that combines an ordered curriculum with a child's natural love of play.

The Associated Press said, "… there's a world of difference between teaching young children with methods designed specifically and exclusively for them, such as the Thibaut Technique, and teaching them with methods adapted from lessons for adults."

CNN called Thibaut "one of a very few experts in teaching languages to small children." The Thibaut Technique, proven and child-tested since 1973, is one of the central tools used by this multi-faceted program. This method introduces quality language immersion educational play to children between 6 months and 12 through age-appropriate activities, native-fluent instructors, child- friendly props, professionally developed vocabulary-rich songs, colorful workbooks, and corresponding visual aids in an emotionally supportive, classroom environment. Children really learn with the LWFC, because they're engaged emotionally, not just cognitively.

LWFC licensees send their native-fluent teachers to be trained to use their renowned Thibaut Technique instructional method.

LWFC Licensees can use the logo, name, brand history and reputation, internet presence, and technique to offer LWFC classes and top-flight educational materials in their community. Experience the benefits of owning your own children's language program without the risk and investment involved in creating a new method and fresh curriculum and materials four times a year.

Originating in Manhattan, over the years the LWFC successfully expanded to towns in New Jersey, Long Island, and Massachusetts. As the LWFC grew it attracted attention from news organizations such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Parents Magazine, People, Ladies Home Journal, CNN, BBC, ABC, NBC, CBS and other television stations.

Parents Magazine called the LWFC "Six Classes Worth the $$$."
