Skill for life!
Children continue to have a natural aptitude to acquire the sounds and patters of new languages much easier that older teens and adults.
Our language classes not only increase confidence, improve listening and memory skills but equip children with the tools for future language learning.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we took our timetable of classes online using Zoom meetings from 23rd March 2020 with great success! Based on the success of our previous term we will continue our early years and primary age French & Spanish groups online in September. Our programme of extra curricular school based language clubs we hope will re-start by the end of the year.
Please see the timetable below and use the buttons to access the bookings and information for each age-group. We are offering FREE TRIALS in September for all ages and look forward to welcoming new and familiar faces for our new term!
All groups will use the fun, age-appropriate learning materials from La Jolie Ronde using a variety of activities including interaction with puppets, stories, games, song videos, worksheets, listening comprehensions, dialogues, role-play and crafts.

It has been found that young babies and toddlers have greater capacity for tuning into foreign language sounds than at any other time in their lives. Words, sounds and intonation will be naturally absorbed.
We deliver our specialist early years programmes at several nurseries, open classes at New Oriel Hall and from March 2020 online.
We recommend you watch this TED talk about the Linguist Genius of Babies.
"E and H loved their days with you at the farm. After the first day they were excited for the next, they really enjoyed it and got to practice and learn their Spanish too"
Our kids Spanish all-day holiday workshops are a the next best thing to sending your children to Spain for a residential course. These days are an immersive experience for children that come from bilingual homes or have learnt Spanish before with more time for playing, listening and speaking Spanish with the teachers and other children.
For those new to learning Spanish, the workshops provide a hands-on and engaging introduction and our warm-up activities giving an introduction to foundation elements of the language.
All of our School holiday activities both online and person will use a variety of teaching methods including games, songs, worksheets, video comprehensions, dialogues, crafts, sports and role-play. All-day workshops can often include mini-excursions and even making food to give variety and appeal to all styles of learner.
Children attending our clubs and workshops make new friends, become confident interacting in Spanish and felt a sense of achievement when receiving their certificates and badges to show-off to family and friends.
Safety first! All our language tutors are fully trained with native accents. All tutors hold up to date DBS checks with foreign police checks carried our if necessary. Our classes are fully insured and our tutors are first aid trained. For online classes a parent/carer must be present in the room.
