if there is negative stars, I would go for the lowest. enrolled for the afterschool math circle. while I always had to chase after what to do with homework for the week for a month, another VERY VERY disturbing boy in the class room was remained not being dealt with. the teacher spent half of time in the class stopping him from disturbing the class and the reason why the boy is remaining that way, still interrupting everyone in the room because he is "SPECIAL". top score on IQ test and who knows what else. me with less than equal opportunity, the special boy with waivers on his action because he is so special.
really? and the director used "as a parent" card on me when I asked about this unfairness. "as a parent, you should understand how special kids need extra help" and my kid didn't even get emails with homework information that everyone else got.
So, I asked to refund my deposit of two month tuition so i can walk away. they refused to do so and still telling me I am tied with the contract?
they keep saying "University level math" is the top merit to be there.
better bet with looking somewhere else.
My son has learned so much from the teachers at WorldSpeak, and we have been amazed by his newly acquired language skills in only 10 months spent at the school. I wish I had enrolled him sooner. The teachers and administration are super caring and personable. I felt totally comfortable leaving my son with them. After 3 months at WorldSpeak, he spontaneously conversed with us in Mandarin. He will ask us questions in Mandarin on his own and will certainly respond in Mandarin if asked in Mandarin. In fact, his Mandarin is now better than his older sister's. Our older child at one point could speak Mandarin reasonably well but lost most of her speaking ability after attending T-K and Kindergarten. We regret not having sent our daughter to WorldSpeak. WorldSpeak also provides English language, Math, Art & Music instructions so we are very happy with the well rounded nature of the program. My son learned how to play songs on the piano. I didn't even know he was learning until he showed me one day at home to my surprise. The facility is smaller than most other schools but certainly adequate. See my review Yelp! for more details
Good concept, poorly executed. We recently attended a birthday party where we met two other families who also tried WorldSpeak Preschool, and like us, had left for other preschools after a short trial. We all agreed that this school has great potential, but is poorly organized and administered. Our family's experience is that with multiple languages being taught, our child and others would sometimes float between teachers in various languages, and English was the common default language used by the teachers (not a true immersion program). After many months here, our child actually forgot most of the language skills that were established prior to enrollment. If you want your child to acquire dual or multi language skills, there are better options to consider around the West Los Angeles area.
Really great preschool! My daughter is 3 and we started when she was 20 months. She is immersed into three languages and she loves going to school every single day to see her friends and teachers. They have so many parties and fun events -it makes school even more fun. Curriculum is done very well.
I can't say enough GREAT things about WorldSpeak or the instructors there. My child is so well taken care of and so involved in learning - they make everything intersting and fun for all the children (just what learning shoudl be like) ... I feel like it was the best thing I ever did to enroll him at WorldSpeak. Thank you WorldSpeak!!!
