“What a child can do today with assistance, they will be able to do by themselves tomorrow” -LEV VYGOTSKY As expressed by the theorical framework of Vygotsky social interactions plays a fundamental and vital role in the cognitive and qualitative development of a child. How a child processes every experience in comparison to an adult, how they perceive different concepts; including but not limited to language learning, is fundamental for the individual learning. Families interactions and community upbringing create cultural beliefs and attitudes that impact how instruction and learning takes place. At Bilingual Little Scholars, we take our job seriously. We understand that much of the learning of a child occurs during social interactions with a skillful educator or tutor. The educator provides verbal instructions and can model behavior for the child. The interaction is refereed by Vygotsky as collaborative dialogue. In our education center, we are aware that our families come from diverse cultures and we understand that this may affect the cognitive development of a child. Social factors can influence and shape the ability of how language and the communication process developed. In agreement with Vygotsky Principle of Language (1962), language evolves from social interactions and he considered it man’s greatest tool. In our school, we stimulate communication among all families and the community by adding Spanish language classes into our curriculum. We also facilitate communication during meetings for our non-English Language speakers’ parents or guardians using an interpreter via skype.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
