Bonjour les amis! 🇫🇷 (Hello Friends!)
Our centre recently applied to become accepted into the Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA) program, our application was approved and our Preschool children will be taking part in French lessons for 2020. This will be a great addition to our prep for school program.
Learning another language helps develop essential areas of a child's brain. It assists children to think more creatively, connect ideas, build connections between English and in our case French, strengthen memory for sequence, concentration and solve problems more easily. Children automatically compare and contrast the system of the new language they are learning with English, which gives them an insight to how English works, which can accelerate their literacy skills.
We look forward to implementing this exciting opportunity at Imaginations and we think the teachers and our children are going to have a lot of fun along the way!
Au revoir! 🇫🇷
