Lingua Garden LLC, also formally known as Kultural Kids LLC, started as a creative arts learning center located in Central Illinois back in 2004.
Over the years, we continued to grow & add programs
Learn Spanish with Ms Denise anywhere, anytime!In 2016, founder & instructor, Denise Leitch -AKA Ms Denise,- relocated to Colorado having to close the Lingua Garden Learning Center located in IL.
For local lessons or live online lessons, you can schedule a free demo class to either one of my programs anytime! Just contact Ms Denise directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This course will provide you with ongoing lessons that are short & effective so that you & your child can view them from anywhere, anytime! In addition, the content is age appropriate and engaging.
Children will learn while being entertained & challenged, while you will learn along through fun, relaxed, and motivational Spanish lessons. My goal is to help you & your child to be able to communicate in the target language. This is a self paced Spanish course and the library is constantly growing!
I am a devoted mother of two and a passionate educator and entrepreneur who specializes in early childhood and elementary foreign language education. Most importantly, I just love what I do. Being an early childhood foreign language instructor and a business owner is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, other than being a mother… luckily for me, I happen to be both!
I was born in Chile and moved to the United States during my senior year of High School. I attended Bradley University and focused my studies on early childhood education, cognitive and social psychology, child brain development, and art.
I realized that by combining my love for nurturing children with my passion for learning about new cultures, I could reach students in a way that went above and beyond ordinary language learning.
For the last 16 years I have owned, directed, and taught at Lingua Garden where I offer foreign language lessons (on-line classes and local families in Boulder, CO) to children and adults. I have dedicated my time to teaching Spanish & French, creating new and exciting foreign language curricula, training new teachers, developing foreign language educational software, and most importantly, spending quality time with my family.
Currently, I devote my time to develop engaging curriculum, teach online lessons to children from all over the country, teach local private/small group lessons, and lead and facilitate conferences for Early Childhood Educators.
