Join the Kidslingo Language Revolution

February 28, 2019

Kidslingo leads the language revolution as language learning rises dramatically with young children.

Despite the recent news that foreign language learning is at its lowest level in UK secondary schools since the turn of the millennium, language experts at Kidslingo are happy to report that the absolute reverse is true at the younger end of the scale.

According to Kidslingo, a national children’s language business that teaches French and Spanish via a network of over 120 franchisees & tutors, the appetite for language learning in nurseries, primary schools and venues across the UK has increased significantly over the past few years as parents and educators alike recognise the vast number of benefits it can bring to young children from enhanced cognitive development to a greater depth of cultural and world understanding.

Expert and Kidslingo founder Anna Neville, said:
“We teach over 12,000 children aged between 0 and 11 years every single week, and that figure continues to rise. The demand is such that we have many classes which are full with a long waiting list. By making language learning as fun as possible, we engage children at a young age and instil a love of languages right from the start of their journey.”

When children learn a language at a young age, they are free of inhibitions that older children harbour. They are often more confident to say things without fear of embarrassment, thus making the toddler years a fantastic time for them to learn a new language, giving them a skill and confidence that can be carried through life.

Have you ever wondered why children seem to have a natural, sponge like ability to absorb new information? This is because the younger you are, the easier it is for your brain to build new pathways that increase the capability to learn new things. As people age, this ability diminishes, and learning something new takes far more time and effort.

Language learning is vital for the future of our economy and society. As stated by Matthew Fell, chief UK policy director for business group the CBI, in the BBC article “Employer demand for French, German and Spanish skills have significantly increased over the last few years.

“The decline in language learning in schools must be reversed, or else the UK will be less competitive globally and young people less prepared for the modern world.

“As well as speaking a foreign language, increasing young people’s cultural awareness and their ability to work with people from around the world is just as important.”

Kidslingo is leading this language revolution from a grass roots level and strives to inspire little ones to love languages every day.

Kidslingo’s innovative approach is based on the science of learning, and uses a clever mix of music, games, role-play, drama and storytelling. To promote inclusivity, Kidslingo also uses Makaton in its lessons and is officially Makaton friendly.
