Welcome to Lingua Natal.

Our mission began in San Diego, California back in 1993 and that mission has never changed. “Provide children with the opportunity to expand their world in the 21st century and provide an engaging, vigorous, and yet gentle and loving environment conducive to the development of happy, healthy minds and hearts and inspiring a new generation dedicated to the betterment of the world and the bringing about of cooperation and friendship among its people.”

We have remained true to our purpose throughout more than twenty-three years of operation and will continue to strive to educate children who will be able to communicate “heart-to-heart” in our own multi-cultural, multi-ethnical community of the U.S. as well as the world community of tomorrow.

America will depend upon these future ambassadors of goodwill and it will remain our goal to prepare creative, healthy, bright, and productive individuals who are capable of interpersonal, inter-social, and inter-cultural exchanges that will result in positive growth in our communities and also in the world community at large.

With warm regards,

Lena Sisson
Lingua Natal Founder & Principal
