FUN AND AFFORDABLE EDUCATION
I am Ines, born in Cameroon, raised in France and Spain, I have been living in the UK for 10 years. Lost on Translation? Well I am not! Being a trilingual mum of 5-year-old and 8 months old bilingual boys brought up a lot of concerns when enrolling my eldest to school. How is he going to learn how to write in French? Is he going to lose French over English or should I say prefer English over French? How can I keep the French fun so he continues to enjoy it? By meeting other bilingual parents/friends I realized I wasn’t alone.
The past few months I have been teaching French on weekends as well as organising French after school in London Fields and Spanish after school to Y1 Y 2 Y3 pupils of Chobham Academy and in Victoria park community centre. Children enrolled are both natives and not natives which I absolutely love because this is NOT limited to French and Spanish natives!
Bilingual children learn faster and easier, have improved problem solving skills and creativity, and have more career opportunities in adulthood. They also find it easier to connect with other cultures which makes them more open-minded and tolerant of diversity, and they are less likely to experience age-related mental illness as they reach old age. Most importantly, it’s much easier to learn a second language at an early age.
Taught in small groups, children learn French or Spanish through storytelling, lively games, music, drama and rhymes. The natural and proven way to learn a new language with our enthusiastic and inspirational teachers.
