Bonbon! French for babies & toddlers at Hale Library
Fun French sessions for babies and toddlers start on Friday 12 October at 11am at Hale Library, introducing French with action songs, rhymes and stories.
The class - called 'Bonbon' (meaning sweet) is run by Laure Butcher, who many parents will know from her Jolie Ronde classes for older children, and she explains the benefits of starting a foreign language at an early age as follows:
ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã âBabies and toddlers have a greater capacity for tuning into foreign language sounds than at any other time in their lives. A 'good' accent is much harder to master later and developing an ear for what 'sounds right' becomes impossible for some older children. My sessions are a fun mix of interactive language based activities that are all about exposing babies and toddlers to the language through exploration & play. They learn via a combination of sounds and activities delivered through action songs, rhymes, stories, role play and fun craft activities, following topics that are already familiar in everyday life.
ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã âLa Jolie Ronde classes offer all the benefits of other early learning classes such as music groups, sing and sign activities and other sensory classes, but with the additional benefit of providing a child with the starting point of a great skill for life."
