The Language Playground


Modern Mommy of the Week:
Have you ever dreamed of having your child learn a second language? I know so many moms who wish they had learned a second language as a child and are trying to figure out how they can make learning a second language a reality for their own kids. Some moms are actually making this dream a reality…

This week I am thrilled to announce our featured Sweet Peas & Stilettos Modern Mommy of the Week – my friend Michelle Gannon from Saratoga, CA. Michelle is an incredibly active mom of three kids Lucas (7), Lousha (4), and Hudson (7 months). She is doing so much to teach her blue eyed, blond haired children to learn to speak and read Mandarin as a second language. What makes her situation unique is that neither she, nor her husband, speak the language at all. They are actually learning a little along with the kids.  And you know what – the kids are thriving and learning more and more every day. She took this passion for language to start an exciting brand new business venture – The Language Playground.


At Sweet Peas & Stilettos we LOVE shoes. Do you have a favorite pair of shoes?
I have these super high Steve Madden stilettos that I love! I bought them two years ago when I was in Vegas on my annual girls’ trip with my college buddies. I needed a little “Vavoom” to match Vegas and these fit the bill!

We want the scoop – please tell us all about your fabulous company!
My website/blog is called The Language Playground and I started it to help parents teach their children a second language even if they don’t speak it themselves. I offer all sorts of tips, product reviews and free printables for parents to use to help them out! I love it because it forces me to test out new materials and learning games with my kids! I started it because so many people kept on asking me what I do to get my kids so comfortable speaking Chinese.
