"I would like to thank you and Jasmine Sensei for offering such a wonderful class. We have been attending Little Ambassadors since James was 8 months old (he just turned 20 months). He has had so much fun learning, singing, and dancing with Jasmine Sensei and Misa Sensei. I am proud to say that he knows all of his animals, colors, body parts, and numbers in Japanese. He just started counting to five in Japanese and i almost died! ;) I will definitely recommend Little Ambassador's to all of my friends and family on the island." --Carli Y., mother of James (20m)
"(My son) has very busy Saturdays as he also takes Karate and swimming lessons. What surprised me is that out of all the classes he takes, Japanese is the one he really looks forward to going to the most." --Dina T., mother of Kainoa (6 yrs)
--Renee I., mother of Madeleine (3 yrs)
- "I think Ku Laoshi is the best instructor we have had. My daughter seems to enjoy the class more than with previous instructors. She seems to understand how to keep such young students interested in the class. Xie Xie!"
"My grandson was testing for preschool the other day. When he was asked to count, he counted to 10 in English, followed immediately by Spanish! The interviewer was really impressed. He is constantly asking for Tia--Spanish class is the highlight of our week. I'm so glad The Honolulu Advertiser ran that piece on Little Ambassadors...we are so happy that the kids are starting to speak to their grandparents in Spanish!"
--Hina A., mother of Reymundo (4 yrs) & Angelina (2 yrs)
"LA is a great program. The CDs are a hit with my daughter… We really enjoy Ku Laoshi. Ku Laoshi is adding a lot of variety into the lesson plan which is wonderful."
--Toddler class parent
"My son loves Japanese class and Jasmine Sensei! He always looks forward to Saturdays. Great job with the lessons...he is really learning a lot! He will sing in Japanese and even count using the language or just practice the a, e, i, o, u, on his own." --Karina V., mother of Diego, (3 yrs)
"We really enjoy the classes. Our child loves the fact that Mommy and Daddy can be there with him. The classroom environment is very welcoming and bright, and everyone is so friendly. Thank you!"
--Gloria W., mother of Cade, (3 yrs)
"This is the best class for Carly--she's been to other Chinese classes, but Little Ambassadors' format of teaching is the best for young children. They really teach in a way that makes sense, with songs and music and fun activities for the children. We're both beginning to understand songs that Carly has been exposed to in the past...finally! Thank you!"
--Carolyn S., mother of Carly (4.5 yrs)
"Our daughter Ruby so enjoys Chinese class. She practices her new language skills at her preschool and with friends. She insists on listening to the CD over and over in the car as well. We have noticed it has also improved her articulation and interest in focused activities like reading and practicing her letters. Thank you."
--Anne C., mother of Ruby (3 yrs)
"Little Ambassadors is wonderful! My granddaughter is enrolled in the Japanese class for children and my grandson is enrolled in the Chinese class for infants. Both love their teachers. The classes are engaging and entertaining. Plus, I'm learning Chinese along with my grandson! I'm very happy that I can experience something fun and educational with my grandchildren in a wonderful environment."
--Lillian C., grandmother of Mia (4 yrs) & Logan (2 yrs)
"My son just turned 17 months old, so that means we've been with Little Ambassadors for 1 year now! Time sure does fly! I am extremely satisfied with my son's progress thus far. He can identify salutations, colors, animals, and numbers in both English and Japanese. I am so happy that we were able to engage him in a second language at such a young age. He thoroughly enjoys "Japanese School" and looks forward to it every Saturday. Thank you so much! A special thanks to Sensei Jasmine who is such a wonderful teacher." --Toddler class parent
