Once upon a time…
As children, we both struggled with how languages were taught to us. We just never seemed to connect.
Our personal struggle with learning languages has always inspired us to create a way for children to learn French that is more intuitive, fun and engaging. In 2012 we put the dream we had of doing this into action and began organising our very first French summer club.
That summer we learnt just as much as the children and as the weeks of the summer club went by, it was fascinating and exciting to watch as our first students grew in confidence – and not just in French but in themselves too.
We created activities around our own favourite Disney movies, as we played games where the children were the Lost Boys helping Peter Pan recover the stolen treasure from Captain Hook. Most of all, we loved seeing how the children became more active and involved when they played games and used their imagination. And it got us wondering how simple it would be for children to learn a language if we built those same stories and games into regular French lessons…
And so, our French club was born.
As we started in our private school in Notting Hill before going on to teach in Nurseries (Miss Delaney’s nursery & Montessorie nurseries), in schools (St Marry Abbots). We now keep giving lessons at Miss Delaney’s as well as at the Essex church.
We want to Empower our students with the confidence that being fluent in French is within their reach.
We strive to create a comfortable and familiar environment where children feel genuinely interested and excited to learn and look forward to each and every lesson.
