BIG BANG Generation is a non-profit association whose mission is to promote and disseminate an ideal of universality through education and the promotion of foreign language awareness, diversity, and the protection of the environment. The association is based in Switzerland. A branch has just been created in France.

BIG BANG Generation presents the KOKORO lingua project: its aim is to create, develop and disseminate content and tools, both digital and material, aimed at promoting learning and access to foreign languages for the largest number of children possible.

Originally

The idea that knowing the language of others,
is opening and enriching oneself and therefore improving one’s chances.

The idea today, that knowing the language of others,
is to take a small step towards peace.

The desire for this idea to become a reality
for most children.

The effectiveness of an intuitive and emotional method
adapted to each person’s abilities.

KOKORO means “heart”,

“or soul” in japonese.

 

At the origin of KOKORO lingua,
is a dream.

The aim to make the discovery of foreign languages accessible to as many children as possible, sharing strong universal values.

KOKORO lingua uses a learning methodology that engages the heart mind, body and soul. Why should we only develop one area?

Our Values

Create a community with shared values, based on:

KOKORO lingua is above all a project of the heart, a project for life, for a better, more beautiful, brighter, warmer life. Learning from the heart can be as powerful as rational learning, because emotion is a source of memory and transformation.

KOKORO lingua is for everyone, everywhere, here and elsewhere, always, today and tomorrow.

Transformation is not just change: it is evolution. But an evolution that elevates us. Language is at the heart of this project but it is there as a form. It is fundamentally about the child, their relationship with others and their environment and the best way to enrich themselves through contact with them.
