Husband: I have a board meeting today presenting my recent analysis on the fund governance. Me: I’m going to draw a moustache on my face and play restaurants with a class of 6 year olds learning French. Husband: I wish I had your job. . . .   #minilanguages     #learnthroughplay     #playtimefun     #learnfrench     #edinburghfamilies     #kidsactivities     #montessoriinspired     #edinburghparents     #languages     #bilingualismrocks     #teachersofinstagram     #mblogger     #scottishmumsinbusiness     #mumpreneur     #bestjobintheworld     #dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo     #liveyourpassion     #smallbusinesses     #startupscotland

Which verb to use for the past tense? Avoir or être? * Use être for intransitive verbs of motion (I explain this in full in my online Grammar Boosts course) - use this image to help you remember the 15 verbs (plus their derivatives such as repartir and devenir)! ⭐️ After a while it becomes instinctive but in the short term think about La Maison d’être 😊 . . .   #globalcitizen     #wideworld     #languagesforkids     #foreignlanguages     #culturaldiversity     #edinburghmums     #edinburghlife     #edinburghmumsanddads     #babiesworld     #toddlermomlife     #travelwithbaby     #kidstravel     #sharetheculture     #openminded     #brightkids     #happylifestyle     #parentingtips     #montessoriinspired     #bloggermom     #montessorikidsactivity     #learnfrench     #français     #keepkidsbusy     #frenchgrammar     #brainboosting

~ Wildhood ~ It’s time to think about a summer of deconnecting and letting the kids be free of the speed of modern life! We’ll be heading back to   @wildhoodfestival   again this year as it was so magical last year! 🌟 Mini French (  @minilanguages  ) will be running again and I can’t wait! The festival ethos is very much like the Mini Languages ethos: letting children grow in a nurturing environment where they can let their own personality shine free of pressure. 💓 Families in Scotland should check it out   @wildhoodfestival   . . .   #wildhood     #deconnect     #familiesedinburgh     #screenfree     #perthshire     #scotlandfestival     #hiddenscotland     #hiddenedinburgh     #edinburghbusiness     #minilanguages     #getactive     #glampingscotland     #getoutdoors     #scotlandtravel     #scotland  _ig   #scotland  _lover   #familyof5     #festivalfood     #frenchtravel     #frenchlanguage

This!!! Post from   @laleo.bilingual.therapy   Totally agree ✅ There seems to be an expectation in some people that bilingualism means total balance in both langages and this cause a lot of frustration in parents which can translate into pressure on children. 🌍 Remember: languages are part of life. Unless you want a translating job, there is no shame in one language being weaker. 👍🏻 As they say an ‘accent’ is a show of courage... . . . .   #bilingualism     #multilingualism     #bilingualkids     #bilingualkidsrock     #familyvalues     #kidstravel     #myths     #mythsvsfacts     #lifelessonslearned     #montikids     #tigermom     #kidsfrench     #minilanguages     #minifrench     #edutech     #onlinelearning     #languagesforkids     #kidslanguages     #languageschool     #edinburghparents     #scottishstartup     #learnfrench

Who am I and what’s the language gap? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Mummy, language lover, fan of retro furniture, travel, walking barefoot and eating cheese. 👌🏼 Think that about covers it? 👩‍🏫 But what takes up most of my time, when I am not throwing snacks at my kids or breaking up Lego arguments, is creating and teaching play-based French lessons for young children. 👥👥 I also manage a wider team who deliver French & Spanish lessons in schools and nurseries in Edinburgh. 💻 I won an award for my programme in 2019 and am building an ONLINE PROGRAMME using the same principles. 🗣 Nurture 👂🏾 Immersion 👥 Encouragement 💿 Music 👶🏼 THE LANGUAGE GAP The language gap is a widening problem facing the UK. Lack of investment and value has been placed on foreign languages in schools in the last few decades leading to a monolingual bias. Future jobs and international relations depend on communication so we are setting up our kids to be sadly lacking in the skills they will need in the future. 🧠 Languages also train and stimulate the brain from birth to boost other cognitive function. And, guess what.... YOU can teach you kids yourself with the right material and support with only 15 minutes a day. 👋 Keep in touch (link in bio for free starter pack) and follow me here on Instagram for free advice on teaching your child a language (mostly focused on French for now).. 🥳 Let’s close the language gap! . . . .   #kidsfuture     #mblogger     #kidstravel     #minilanguages     #invitationtoplay     #bilingual     #bilingualkids     #learnfrench     #learnfrenchonline     #kidsmusic     #learnthroughplay     #montessoriathome     #homeschoolmom     #homeschoollife     #homeschoolmum     #homeschoolcollective     #eyfs     #earlyyears     #nurseryteacher     #classroomideas     #lifewithkids     #mummylife     #edinburghkids     #edinburghparents     #babysensory     #kindergartenclassroom     #realparenting     #edinburghcity     #edutech     #scottishstartup
