Our Language Learning Philosophy
The majority of companies with foreign language programs in the marketplace use animation, still photos, or grammar so they can offer multiple languages to consumers.
It’s our dream to be able to offer as many languages as possible to our families and schools but we believe every language is unique and needs to be taught in an authentic way. We also believe that to be the most effective for students learning a foreign language, it’s essential to see real people moving their mouths and speaking and using the language in real life situations.
The benefit to our approach is evident in the effectiveness of our program and the incredible excitement and enthusiasm we consistently hear about from our families and teachers. The downside is that it takes us substantial time and resources to develop our program for every language. We are grateful for the support of our followers as we work to add more languages for your students.
Our Spanish Program
Our Spanish program is a full eight level curriculum. At twice a week, the curriculum can be completed in two to three years using the supplemental products and full online program. The video program alone, without the supplemental activities, can be done in one year.
The online program includes:
The supplemental program includes
Learn Spanish effortlessly. Our program teaches children a new language in a way that develops their confidence and inspires them to enjoy learning. Seeing and learning from other kids has an incredible appeal to children, engaging and motivating them in a uniquely effective way.
- Easy to use for parents, teachers and students
- The video series, which is the heart of the program, can be used on its own with no other reinforcements
- A variety of supplemental products are available to help reinforce the video lessons, so parents and teachers can choose what works best for their students
FL4K is a great way to get your children on the right track to learning Spanish.
“This Spanish program is different! It's engaging, it keeps the kids interested...My oldest daughter has taken Spanish in public high school and I can honestly say that the kids have learned the language much faster and efficiently in a couple of months than she has in a year of instruction.” -Counting Pine Cones

As luck would have it, one of our very best videographers spent several months in Germany in late 2017. At the same time, the wonderful school district of Washington Township in New Jersey, who uses our Spanish program for all of their third and fourth graders, has a large German community and was interested in us making some German videos for their students. We are currently editing the footage from Germany and will have an abridged program for German out by the end of 2018.
If you’re interested in our German videos, please sign up here and we will let you know when it’s ready!
Our goal is to start the roll out of the Mandarin Chinese program in 2019. Please sign up here if you’re interested in our Mandarin Chinese program.
English as a Second Language
Our current goal is to film English as a Second Language in the fall of 2018. We weren’t originally planning on filming English but we’ve been asked by so many teachers for it, then we’ve added it to our scheduled. Please sign up here and we’ll let you know when the English program is available.
If there’s a particular language you’re interested in, please let us know. We want to help our communities and hearing from you is the best way for us to do that!
