Languages vital for the future

March 4, 2019

Another day brings further analysis on language learning in secondary schools and urgent action is called for by MPs & business leaders alike.

Kidslingo whole-heartedly welcomes and supports the APPG (All-party Parliamentary Group) proposal for National Languages Recovery Programme outlined here – https://nationalrecoverylanguages.weebly.com/.

Dr Adam Marshall, director general of the British Chambers of Commerce said: “Language skills lead to a better understanding of how people and cultures operate, and that understanding is often the key to closing a business deal.”

“Speaking languages and engaging with other cultures are the currency of the 21st century. In today’s inter-connected world, communicators and bridge-builders are needed as never before.” stated the German Ambassador to the UK, Peter Wittig.

The way to ensure that our children enjoy languages later in their education is to start at a young age, even before primary school, in a natural, play-based way.

Anna Neville, CEO & Founder of Kidslingo said “At Kidslingo we believe that starting young is the key so that basic language skills are instilled in a natural manner long before the later inhibitions emerge. This trend can be reversed with the introduction of languages in the early years of life. Through our multi-sensory approach of songs, games, Makaton, stories and drama, children learn to love languages. This love of languages leads to curiosity to learn further and develop greater skills later on in their education.”

One Kidslingo customer recently said “I love the confidence my daughter is learning through attending Kidslingo classes. Her curiosity and thirst for language knowledge is growing too.”
