Where have you been if nursery school language lessons aren’t on your agenda yet? After all, it’s eight years since languages were made compulsory at KS1 and KS2 level. And nursery is the perfect place to introduce pre-school children to a taste of what’s to come when they enter full-time education.

Teresa Tinsley and Kathryn Board said in the British Council’s Voices magazine, “At last, we are seeing a new language become a normal part of children’s learning from the beginning of their primary education – while they are confident and curious – rather than a challenging new subject associated with the pressures of starting secondary school”. 

So, nursery school language lessons take best practice a step further and put the icing on the cake.

Additionally, nursery school language lessons are child’s play to implement, whilst delivering tremendous benefits.

Here’s how. 

Nursery School Language Lessons are Failproof Pre-School Prep

In case you’re wondering, nursery school language lessons don’t involve trying to push little one too hard, or failing to capture them, due to content that’s too old for them engage with.

On the contrary, regular 45-minute interactive classes with singing and gamified learning inspire their highly receptive imaginations. Plus, it’s a powerful pre-starting point for future academic achievement.

To this end, take a look at what these nursery school teachers had to say about the language lessons provided by La Academia –

  • “The children really enjoy Silvi’s visits and are always eager to learn new words/phrases and take part in all the lovely activities that Silvi has planned.
    We could not recommend La Academia enough and we look forward to working with them for many more years to come.”

  • “Our children love the Spanish lessons delivered by Silvi. The sessions are fun, exciting and engaging, and it’s so lovely to hear our children singing and talking in Spanish.”
