Coco-lingo: A World of Chocolate & Language

For Swedes, it’s choklad, the French call it chocolat, in Japan it’s チョコレート, and Americans say chocolate. No matter the spelling or pronunciation, chocolate is treasured around the globe!  Countries celebrate their unique varieties, whether dark, milk, semi-sweet, or zesty. 

To share and savor the international flavors of this much-loved sweet, Sponge invites parents to a free event to sample chocolates from around the world while Kelly Bolen, Education Director at Sponge, offers insight on language acquisition in babies and children.  How do children learn language?  What is the best time to introduce a child to a new language?  Please join us for a sweet treat and insight into your babies’ amazing ability to learn language.

Where: Mt. Baker Center, 3107 S Day St, Seattle, WA
