Kidslingo Together – Intergenerational Language Learning

What is Kidslingo Together?

A new intergenerational language learning programme where care home residents and children learn French or Spanish together. It aims to improve emotional and physical wellbeing for everyone and encourages interaction between generations by using an exciting mixture of music, games, Makaton, role-play, drama and storytelling.
It isn’t just about learning a new language – it’s also about learning through the generations and about caring for each other, whatever your age.

If you are a residential care home, a community group, a school, nursery or parent and are interested in getting involved in Kidslingo Together – please get in touch using the form below.

The key benefits:

A number of studies show that learning a new language can build up cognitive reserve and delay the onset of dementia by six years.

An increased ability to prioritise and problem solve for both age groups.

Key life skills, such as intergenerational communication and improving understanding of others:

It has also been suggested that increased social interaction is linked to a lower risk of disease among the elderly, and that it can help reduce the negative effects of social isolation.

However it’s not just the older generations who reap the benefits of the scheme. The children love hearing about the stories and adventures of the older generations and the classes introduce them to a learning environment they might not usually experience. They’re also encouraged to be more patient and open minded, which are key life skills.
