Questions with Cheryl Granoff (Mother of Logan and Noah)
Q. What benefits do you see for your child being bilingual?
Cheryl:
We chose ISA because we wanted our sons’ brought up in an immersion setting helping fuel their vocabulary. We also wanted them to have friends to share the experience with and interact.
Q. What difference do you see in learning young opposed to learning in middle/high school?
Cheryl:
It gives them a great base and helps train their brain during their developmental years. It also is very easy for them to learn it at such a young age.

Logan, third grade, and Noah, second grade, attend International School of Arizona.
