It's national sandwich day! 🥪 Here in the UK the most popular filling is cheese 🧀 However around the world, they're much more adventurous then us!
In 🇮🇹 Italy, the triangular 'Trapizzino' is very popular with slow cooked pork inside a breaded pocket.
In 🇩🇪 Hamburg, Germany, the infamous 'Fischbrötchen' (range of fish) is top of the list.
In 🇪🇸 Spain, the 'Bocadillo' is a great tapas dish but it's very tasty in a sandwich (served on a long roll with fillings like ham and seafood).
In 🇫🇷 France, it has to be the 'Jambon Beurre' - a sample ham and butter sandwich but on the amazing French baguette.
What's your favourite sandwich?!
Today marks the end of the celebrations from the 'Día de los Mu***os' (Day of the Dead) in many Hispanic countries.
The day is often confused with Halloween but it's a very different celebration which isn't at all about scaring people! It's a very happy and fun time to remember your loved ones who are no longer with us and celebrate their lives. Beautiful and colourful decorations are made and families and friends all come together to offer gifts such as flowers or favourite meals in memory of their loved ones.
If you haven't already seen it, the Disney film 'Coco' explains all the 'Day of the Dead' traditions very well for children.
It's 'All Saint's Day!' a national holiday that is celebrated in many European countries where families gather to remember loved ones who have passed away. Shops and businesses are often closed and in some towns, restrictions are imposed on dancing and entertainment venues. In 🇪🇸 Spain it's often referred to as ''Todos los Santos,' in 🇩🇪 Germany, it's known as a silent day or 'Stiller Tag,' 🇮🇹 Italy, it's referred to as 'Tutti i Santi' and in 🇫🇷 France it's called 'la Toussaint.'
It's Halloween - which means it's time for a spook-tacularly corny joke! 😜 What does a panda ghost eat? Bam-BOO! 😆 Your turn (please🙏- we clearly need some new jokes!)!
A lovely relaxing weekend to finish off half term and a chance to learn a new language 🇮🇹
Looking forward to the new half term with classes starting back tomorrow!
💥 DON'T FORGET that the clocks go back 1 hour tonight!
That means you can look forward to an extra hour's sleep tomorrow! 😴
Oh wait, you've got kids, right?! 😆
🎃 It's national pumpkin day - and how cute is this pumpkin baby!? 🎃
Have you got a pic of your little one all dressed up in their Halloween costume? Pop it in the comments below & let's share some Halloween spirit! 👻
An increasing number of families in the UK are struggling financially and are now relying on food banks & donations to put food on the table for their children.
So if you, like us, are saddened at this news, why not join in with our Food Calendar?
Just find a box or a large shopping bag, and every day in November, pop an item of food into it so that it can be given to a local family in-need in time for Christmas (jars, tins, cartons & packets are best as they have a longer shelf life).
Then at the end of the month, drop it off at a local food bank, or see if a primary school near you is accepting donations (lots are).
In this day & age, no child should have to go hungry. 💙
Did you know that we also offer birthday party packages? 🥳
If you're planning your little one's next birthday party we would LOVE to help you out by providing some stress-free party entertainment for all your guests. We tailor your party just for you to make sure we include all your favourite BilinguaSing songs and activities. 💙 🎈
Just get in touch to find out more!
💥 If you can't get to a face-to-face BilinguaSing class for whatever reason, have a look at our fabulous online classes that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home!
You can join in with the classes on-demand and watch in your own time and at your own pace.

🍂 As half term approaches, don't forget to check out our availability in our sessions for the November/December half term: https://www.bilinguasing.com/find-a-class/
Come and learn a new language with your little one with sensory props, parachutes, bubbles, singing and play! 🇫🇷 🇪🇸 🇩🇪 🇮🇹
⭐️ Did you know that BilinguaSing is the only truly bilingual music class franchise in the UK? 🎶
If you've ever heard a song just once & then had it playing around your head for days, you won't be surprised to learn that singing in a foreign language can make it easier to learn because it helps it 'stick' in your brain.
What's more, music has loads of developmental benefits for babies and young children - from social-emotional to physical skills; and from cognitive to language and literacy skills.
And because we always present our catchy bilingual songs and nursery rhymes in English first, followed by the second language, your little one's understanding is enhanced through improved communication; their frustration is reduced; their enjoyment is increased; they remain engaged for longer; and a love of languages develops! 💙
This week it's
I think we all now understand the need to reuse & recycle more to minimise our impact on the planet & like you all, we're doing our bit at BilinguaSing too. So far, we've...
✅ Changed our Membership Packs to lovely reusable tote bags to reduce the amount of plastic bags we use
✅ Made all our music albums available as downloads to save on plastic CD cases
Any suggestions for what we could do next?
💙 Baby Loss Awareness Week is a time for bereaved parents, and their families and friends to unite and commemorate their babies' lives.
💙The week also raises awareness of how pregnancy and baby loss affects thousands of families each year across the UK. This tragedy affects 1 in 4 families. Stigma and silence often means families feel isolated in their grief.
💙Join in with the global Wave Of Light tonight at 7pm. Light a candle & leave it burning for at least 1 hour in remembrance of all babies who have died too soon
Fun fact for you - apparently it's Train Your Brain Day today! 💪
Not only does learning another language boost your baby's brain development, but many parents tell us that their BilinguaSing class is the ONLY ONE that offers THEM some mental stimulation, helping to stave off ‘baby brain’!
So a workout for YOUR brain, as well as your baby's - win, win! 🙌 🙌
What you MIGHT not know is that learning a second language can also help protect your brain in later life, with studies showing that certain types of dementia appear up to 5 years later for people who speak a second language compared with those who don’t. 😲
Who knew that learning another language could be so good for you! 💙
Today it's the 'National Day of Spain' or more commonly known as, 'Día de la Hispanidad.'
This celebrates the Spanish legacy in the Americas. In the US, it's often referred to as 'Christopher Colombus Day' to commemerate the discovery of the Americas. It's a day to celebrate Spanish culture and language in any country with a Spanish link! 🇪🇸 🇺🇸
This week it's National Work Life Week - a time to check in with your colleaugues' well-being at work and your own work-life balance.
Many people chose to start a BilinguaSing franchise to improve their own work-life balance and to find flexible work that fits around their own family commitments.
If you'd like to find out more about working with us, just get in touch - [email protected] or https://www.bilinguasing-language-franchise.com
Today marks World Mental Health Day. With covid and the cost of living crisis, the past few years has been very stressful for many of us. It's important to talk about mental health and provide the tools and strategies needed to help reduce stress and anxiety 💚
💙🎵🌎 This week in our A-Z of BilinguaSing, 'K' is for 'kindness'! By being exposed to other languages, your child will also learn about other people's cultures. And the more we learn about one another, the greater our understanding, which in turn leads to more kindness in the world. 💙 🌎
😊 Today is World Smile Day! Pass it on & spread bucketfuls of positivity everywhere you go 😊
Today is World Teacher Day!
So at the end of the school day, we hope that today in particular all the amazing teachers out there will be able to enjoy a well-deserved relaxing evening. In reality, they will all probably still be working hard prepping their classes for tomorrow & not realise how appreciated they are and what a difference they make to so many!
We are very grateful for all the fabulous language teachers we have met over the years. They have inspired us to love languages, travel and the great variety of cultures across the world.
As BilinguaSing teachers we hope, in turn, that we also inspire future generations to love & embrace language learning.
Today it's 🇩🇪 'Germany Unity Day' 🇩🇪 which commemerates the fall of the Berlin wall and the unity between East and West Germany. It has been a public holiday since 1990 when the formal unification was officially completed 🙌
Halloween is just around the corner and to help spread our love of languages and celebrate my favourite time of year, we are offering THREE local nurseries a FREE music & Spanish session which can help your little learners to achieve their early learning goals.
During the session, we will be:
👻 using new vocabulary in English and in Spanish;
🎃 practicing our fine motor skills;
🦇 recognising counting patterns;
🕷️ talking about similarities and differences in different countries.
🕸️ demonstrating our confidence by trying a new activity.
So, if you work in a nursery or pre-school and are looking for ideas on how to celebrate Halloween AND offer your children a great activity to boost their learning and development then look no further!

Well October has certainly snuck up on us this year - boo! Are you ready for the most spooky month of the year?
It's International Translation Day! 📕 🤓
I personally love hearing about when translations go wrong... Did you know, for example, that KFC famously mistranslated their slogan 'Finger Lickin' Good' into Chinese as 'Eat your fingers off!' And Vauxhall's car the 'Nova' literally translates as 'does not go' in Spanish 🤣
On a serious note, translation is a huge part of language learning which we champion in our classes through our bilingual learning fun. You never know, your little BilinguaSinger might grow up to be a translator one day! 🇪🇸 🇫🇷 🇩🇪 🇮🇹
It's National Teaching Assistant Day today - a perfect reminder to say a big thank you / gracias / grazie / danke / merci for all the amazing work that Teaching Assistants for our children at school. We are so grateful for everything you do.

It was wonderful this morning to introduce Spanish to the enthusiastic and friendly children at Wishbone Way Nursery - A Toad Hall Day Nursery in Woking
🥁‘I’ is for ‘instruments’! 🥁
Why do we use them in our classes? As well as being lots of fun, playing with musical instruments helps build both fine & gross motor skills, enhances sensory development and improves hand-eye coordination.
Children feel a great sense of accomplishment as they experiment with making different sounds, as well as learning all about cause & effect.
So all in all, you could say they're ‘instrumental’ in boosting your child’s development! 😆
🏴☠️ Ahoy, me hearties - it's Talk Like a Pirate Day! 🏴☠️
Tell us your favourite pirate joke - it can't be worse than this one! 😆
🌎🎵💙 In our A - Z of BilinguaSing, 'h' is for 'horizons! By introducing your little one to another language, you'll instil in them a natural curiosity for other cultures, and a greater appreciation & sensitivity towards other people. 🤗
Because language barriers won't be a concern for them, they're more likely to be open to discovering new places & meeting new people - and you'll probably find they don't need any cajoling to broaden their horizons when they're older! ✈️ If it sounds exciting, that's because it is! 🤩
Is it too early to mention the 'C' word however.......it's only 100 days until Christmas! 🎄🎅
Happy Roald Dahl Day! 📚 Did you know that Roald Dahl created a language called Gobblefunk to welcome children into the world of his stories?

What's your favourite Gobblefunk word?!
