If there’s one gift you can give your child, it’s the gift of learning a second language. Founders of Kultured Kidz International Ruth and Andre Buntin know this well. It’s one of the reasons they collaborated to open a language program for children and adults.
Ruth Buntin, a licensed social worker, is the child of Haitian immigrants and speaks English and Creole. Co-founder and husband Andre Buntin, a business major with many years of business and marketing experience, helps drive the business forward.
They wanted their son to learn a second language, but their son’s school wasn’t offering foreign language. The parents said they simply wanted to prepare their son to be the best person he could be in life.
The benefits of acquiring a second or third language are priceless, especially at a young age. According to Michigan State University, children who know a second language are better at problem solving, focusing, and retaining information. And not to mention, knowing a second language also increases job opportunities.
Kultured Kidz International offers virtual language classes for adults and children. The program currently offers French, Spanish, Creole, and Mandarin. All the instructors are fluent in the languages they teach. The founders hope to add more languages in the future if there’s demand for it.
Each class is one hour and takes place on Zoom. The teachers keep the students engaged with games and other activities. The classes are designed for students four years and older, and students are grouped based by their age.
The program started off in a physical space in Brooklyn, New York, but moved to 100% online during the pandemic. It all worked out, as this gave children an opportunity to interact and thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. Now children across the United States can participate in the language program from the comfort of their homes. They currently have students in Florida, Georgia, and other states.
Kultured Kidz International is not just a language school. Students in the program gain social and teamworking skills. In the past, they hosted a career day and virtual Christmas party for students.
Kultured Kidz International offers a free trial class for those interested in enrolling.
