Kidslingo’s Youngest Franchisee in Awards Finals

Chloe, Kidslingo’s youngest franchisees at age 28, is a FINALIST in Young Franchisee of the Year in the prestigious Approved Franchise Association awards 2020. She was only 26 when she joined Kidslingo and her French and Spanish business in Cheltenham & Gloucester has gone from strength to strength.

Here’s Chloe’s lovely story in her own words:

My dad is French and my mum is English and we grew up on a small English-speaking island called St.Lucia. My parents spoke both languages to/around us and, for the most part, stuck to their mother languages. If I wanted to speak to my papa it was in French and in English for my mum. I was happy to speak both. I learnt Spanish while at secondary school in St. Lucia. My ability to speak French meant that I dove straight into the Spanish language and loved every lesson. Lots of my friends were from South America (Colombia, Venezuela, Panama...) and I loved practicing with them! I've always wanted to be a teacher. Growing up, I would always want to play teachers with my friends and pretend to be a teacher. 6 years ago while I was living in France, I fell in love with teaching languages. At the time, I was teaching fun English to French children aged 0-14 (my youngest was 6 months) and was enchanted and inspired by the children's growing confidence in their abilities to learn a foreign language. My language journey has led me to Kidslingo where I adore inspiring young children every day to love and embrace languages.
