With your license you'll be granted permission to "do business as" or DBA Bilingual Birdies in your general region. If you're located in the US, please state which county you'll be primarily focussed on so that we can list you as such on our site and drive customers to you. If you're outside of the US, please list the general area inside of your city or town which you'll be operating in. For example, if you're planning to do business in Los Angeles, California, you'd need to select a specific part of Los Angeles, such as Hollywood. So you would be Bilingual Birdies Hollywood.
What is the legal business name that you plan to register as? *
If you don’t already have a registered business name, we require that you register your business under any name that you select, which should not be affiliated with Bilingual Birdies. For example, if you’d like to name your business “Maria’s Multilingual Fun House, LLC” then you’d need to enter that full name below. This is important because if approved, your business name will be reflected on your licensing agreement.
How many physical locations are you planning to teach in? * What is the date you plan to offer your first class? * What is your desired branded Bilingual Birdies email? *
We will do our best to accommodate your request
For example, if you plan to do business in Hollywood, California, perhaps you’d like to have the branded email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be mindful to not request a branded email with too general of a name like email@example.com. Best to be specific.
Please list your emergency contact's full name, phone number, email, and full street address. * What language would you like to train in and teach? - checkboxes Which languages are you planning to offer? * How many teachers are you getting trained? * Number of children participating * Audition PREPARE & SUBMIT YOUR VIDEO:
Step 1: Listen to the below audio file of the Wheels on the Bus in the language you are applying to teach in.
Step 2: Watch the below puppetry video in the language you are applying to teach in.
Step 3: Practice replicating both the song and the puppetry video. For the sing you can use musical accompaniment with a hand drum, maracas, clapping, a guitar, ukulele, or keyboard if possible. It is not required that you play a musical instrument. Hand percussion is fine! For puppetry you can use a sock on your arm or just your hand!
Step 4: Record a simple video with your cell phone or computer of yourself in the language you are applying to teach in. Imagine that you are in front of a room of three-year-olds, and please introduce yourself in the language, tell us what you did today in the language, begin teaching the Wheels on the Bus, and transition into the puppetry routine in the language. Save the video as YourName_AuditionVideo_YourCity and upload it here. The whole video should be about 8 minutes long or less! (If you are applying in more that one language, please make one video per language.)
Good luck and have fun!
