What we're about

Language-Specific Socials

Do you speak French, Spanish, Russian, German, Mandarin, Hebrew, ASL, Hindi, Portuguese, Polish, Japanese, Arabic...or another language? Would you like to meet with other families who speak one of these languages to form friendships and community connections? While adults meet one another and socialize; children can play together and enhance their social and language skills naturally as they make friends who also speak the language. Imagine Playspace has an entire kid sized play town to encourage interactive play as well as an indoor playground with ball pit, bounce house and so much more!

Spanish, German, French, Mandarin, Hebrew, Russian, Romanian/Moldovan, ASL (Baby signs) groups are already meeting!

There is growing interest in Arabic, Portuguese, Hindi, Polish, Korean, ASL, Japanese, Somali, Italian, Dutch and other languages.

What is Imagine Playspace?

Imagine is a huge interactive, educational, play space which includes an entire role-play town and indoor/outdoor playground. Imagine is also a family friendly gathering space with a huge open Hall containing large kitchen/dining area and large dance floor/stage & lounge areas. Check out our website for information, photos, hours, directions, parking... http://www.imaginecambridge.com

Why Join a Language Social?

Families can socialize and naturally acquire language skills in an immersive environment. If groups choose, they can share activities, including music, story time, circle or parachute games, puppetry, art, or even a more involved, themed curriculum. There is a substantial selection of books in most of these languages in our international Children's library, plus access to most any learning materials you might want or need.

Socials will begin as significant interest develops and a minimum of 5 families register for a specific language and time. There is a huge list of families that have expressed interest through Imagine as well as the smaller group on meetup. Specific pages for the languages on this meetup site will help keep you informed about the status of your particular language group.

Starting in the new year we may ask interested families and individuals to commit to a series of 6 out of 8 week meetings to ensure that we have a healthy group for all involved.

Once we have a stable group, we will organize cultural sessions that will implement the Traditions of these two beautiful countries. We will organize “șezători” with traditional dishes and why not the traditional “hora” dance and “Doina” music. We will take turns to read our children Romanian stories and teach them “poezii” . We hope you share this information with other Romanian-speaking parents/families who may be interested in attending the group so that everyone can meet and enjoy the community. We plan to meet each week on Thursday at 4-8pm and we'd love to see you soon!
