Spaces. Book on our website and do spread the word.

Do you know this story? Tout en Haut by Mario Ramos. It’s very funny and is perfect for our Zoo topic. The children love piling up the animals on top of each other and then knocking them over - BADABOUM! 🐊 🐘 🦏 🦒 🐵

We teach several private French lessons each week. Our youngest student is 2 and our eldest is 12. Each 40 minute class (either face to face or on zoom) is bespoke to each student as they progress each week. Our younger children enjoy learning different topics through a range of fun games, songs, stories and lots of time for 1:1 learning. Our older students, who may or may not also be learning French at school, benefit hugely from the 1:1 learning with emphasis on reading, writing and speaking in French. Interested? Get in touch and let’s chat. #1:1learning

We have lots of fun colour resources ready for this week’s classes. My book choice is Pop le dinosaure who eats lots of different coloured foods and turns into different colours as he eats them!
We find the best way to teach French colours to children of all ages, is to use fun props and resources with imaginative games, songs and stories. Our students are in for a real treat this week.

15/05/2024

We will have a space to take on a new nursery for French classes in the Autumn term and would be delighted to offer a free taster session for any nursery that might be interested? We currently teach in 10 nurseries in the local area and would love to add another setting to our timetable.
If you know of a nursery that might be interested, please get in touch with Debbie to find out more. We teach really fun weekly classes that are hugely popular with children, staff and parents! You can email on [email protected] or call Debbie on 07903 525070.

Fantastic achievement for one of the wonderful nurseries we teach French to each week.

My two story choices this week are Handa’s surprise for our older students and Je Veux Ma Banane for our little ones. Reading stories in French and English is a great way of introducing a second language. Children soon begin to recognise words and phrases and have fun participating too!

14/04/2024

Our Summer Camp dates are now confirmed as 19-22 August. We are offering a special early bird offer if you book before 31st May so head over to our website to register.

We aim to keep everyone entertained with a wide range of different activities including plenty of time outside.

Our third and final camp is finished! It was a huge success and I think there will be a lot of very sleepy children later! We baked ice cream cone cupcakes, made pretty mirrors and flower magnets, did lots of scratch art (children seem to absolutely love it!) and played the colour spot game (of course!), duck duck goose and Chinese whispers. We did a French chocolate tasting session and made ice cream sundaes. Before the children went home I asked them what their favourite activities were and most told me they had enjoyed everything! Now to plan our four day Summer camp and make it just as good!

Another fab day at camp today. We baked bunny paw cookies, made beautiful birds in cages and serene swan magnets. We did an egg hunt outside dodging the rain, played the colour spot game on repeat (this has to be the most requested game at our camps!) and enjoyed a fantastic session with but I’ll do a separate post on it because it definitely deserves one. Only one day left tomorrow. Still a few spaces left if you’d like to join us.

The children loved stroking and holding the animals at camp today. Thank you Wild Fangs. Here are some great pics for you to enjoy!

Photos from The Little Language Academy's post 09/04/2024

We love our visits from and Faik has been coming to our camps for nearly 10 years now! He never disappoints and today’s visit was just fab. The children got to stroke and hold all kinds of creatures - first up were two giant Madagascan cockroaches which we named Snoopy and Tickly. We raced them twice and Snoopy won both times! Then we met Kermit the frog who enjoyed sitting on our arms, then it was Lucky the gekko’s turn followed by Zebedee the snake. The last animal was a chinchilla and I’m afraid I’ve forgotten his name! Wild Fangs will be back for our Summer Camp in August - 19-21 -and they also do birthday parties. Check them out and save the date for our camp which is bound to sell out.

So I thought I’d try a new snack idea for camp today and it was a huge success. We made banana kebabs dipped in chocolate and sprinkles and they were yummy! Even children who said they didn’t like banana tried them and loved them.

08/04/2024

Learning another language is so much more fun if the resources used are fun too! We’re teaching rooms of the house at the moment with some of our classes, so we’re making up different little room sets with furniture and family members. Children are constructing simple sentences using the preposition ‘dans’ such as Maman est dans la cuisine (Mummy is in the kitchen), giving them loads of confidence to have a go at speaking meaningful sentences, rather than just learning vocabulary. We have a small number of spaces left in these classes if you’d like to join us. Get in touch for a chat.
