One of our aims this year is to improve our overall level of french as a house. We have fluent speakers and absolute beginners in the house. We decided that the fluent speakers will write out phrases throughout the week for the non french speakers. Learning a new language can be intimidating, but this method takes the pressure off and can boost confidence. This increased confidence can have a profound impact on their overall language learning journey.
The girls have taken it a step further and have started adding translations of their native tongue as well. This was not the plan at the start but it is amazing to see how it has grown organically. We live in this international environment and by sharing the beauty of language, students aren’t just sharing words, they’re sharing worlds, experiences, and a piece of themselves.
And as always I have included our daily pictures.
Lots of love,
Aida & Yewande
