What does language mean to you? And what could it to mean to your little ones?
With our Piccolina package, you will receive weekly video sessions where we’ll go on a global adventure with Croc Monsieur, gradually learning songs in a range of languages, supported with downloadable lyrics and activities. By the end of the 40-week course, you’ll be taking your first steps in ten different languages! I believe that language is a passport to the world. It opens our eyes to our planet’s geography, history, music and stories, while filling us with curiosity, self-confidence and the chance to learn and explore together. Where will your new languages take you?Sign Up Now
Each term you’ll discover exciting new songs and revisit familiar old favourites. Music and repetition are key to learning, and before you know it, you’ll be singing ‘Row, Row, Row the Boat’ in Norwegian, or your new favourite Welsh song as you queue at the shops! As the songs gain familiarity, they become a part of everyday family life and, just like that, you and your little one/s will have made the first step to becoming multi-lingual.
I passionately believe that languages should be embraced collectively, rather than one by one, and luckily children are great at exploring and discovering the connections between languages. Afterall, it wasn’t all that long ago that your little ones learnt their very first language, with you as their teacher! This course will set your children up with a big picture view of the world, and a desire to play an unrestricted part in it.
As part of the Piccolina package, you also have access to the Babel Babies community where you can share your language-learning experiences, swapping support and encouragement with like-minded adults.
In addition to the weekly video music sessions, downloadable learning materials, and access to our supportive online community, your child will receive a passport journal with stickers, lyrics postcards and a birthday card in the post from our mascot, Croc Monsieur, making their adventures with languages more tangible.
Continue the language adventure by opting into our Encore package once you and your little one/s have completed the course. You will keep your place in the Babel Babies community and retain access to all of the videos and extra materials, as well as receiving new resources, webinars and fresh content from Cate and the other Multilingual Ambassadors.
