Meet Hugo & Ivey, a brother and sister studying at the St. Louis Language Immersion School (SLLIS) here in town. Everything they study is in French. Everything. From math to science, all academic studies are taught in French starting in kindergarten. What an amazing concept, right? As a returned Peace Corps volunteer, I was excited to hear of a school that taught such an intensive subject from such a young age. I think it is such an amazing head start for these kids! I am a big fan of gaining perspective, and SLLIS is an amazing beginning for this generation of kids. I think everyone should speak multiple languages, and I hope more children would have the opportunity that Hugo & Ivey have. We look forward to more kids like Hugo & Ivey in the future.
