  • Small class sizes. We only allow ten (10) students in a class.
  • We teach a variety of world languages. FLY offers Spanish, French, Japanese, German, Arabic and Mandarin Chinese.
  • Immersion learning. Students learn through immersion around games, songs, actions and drama.
  • Fun and custom curriculum. Our dialogue-based curriculum is designed and written specifically for our classes with increasing levels and immersion for student advancement.
  • All our teachers are fluent and love to share their culture. FLY exposes our students to over 1,000 words which plug into our short, practical, dialogue segments.
  • Parents and family involvement. Family and friends are invited to Student Presentation Days held twice throughout the year.
