Our top tips and resources for learning from home with Primary children. 


If you could go anywhere in the world… where would it be?

We all have to stay at home – but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the world to us! Learning languages is a fantastic way to experience other cultures.


Here are some language learning activities you can do from home…

PHONE A FRIEND

Do you have a friend or relative who lives in another country with a different language? Teach your children ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ in that language, and give them a call!

FOREIGN LANGUAGE BEDTIME STORIES

Do your children have a favourite bedtime story they know almost by-heart? Try finding it in a different language to read aloud! This could help them pick up sentence structures, or begin to recognise words in another language.

HAVE A FOREIGN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE NIGHT

Why not have a themed night where you adopt another culture’s language, food and dress! This is the perfect opportunity to try a new recipe, or order some tasty food!

LINK TO LIFE!
Here are some tips and ideas to integrate languages into everyday activities!

Language learning doesn’t have to be time-consuming! Adding phrases to your everyday routine is a quick and easy way to keep your children learning – try replacing ‘good morning’ or ‘good night’ with a new language with your children. You’ll be amazed at how quickly they pick it up!


GREAT ACTIVITIES AND RESOURCES FOR PARENTS

Quote of the day
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.- Nelson Mandela
