In the last six or seven years, the Australian Government has been pushing towards introducing a second language into schools. While some schools have managed to integrate language into the curriculum, many schools have not been able to introduce it as efficiently and effectively as they would have liked to.
In this global economy parents no longer have the luxury of asking themselves “should my child learn a second language”, the question they should be asking themselves is “when should I introduce the second language and what should that language be?”
“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way – Frank Smith”
In fact across the world more and more children are learning a second language at home, and the art of learning this language is simply a part of growing up.
We know that introducing a second language to children makes them better thinkers, more effective communicators and, more importantly, makes them global citizens.
This is why parents are welcoming the $100 creative child rebate that the NSW government has introduced. While it allows us many avenues in which to explore creativity with our children, a number of these opportunities are already being presented in our schools in the form of S.T.E.M which is why this is the perfect time to introduce language.
LCF Fun Language has been educating children across the world for over 30 years. By combining drama, storytelling, technology, songs, craft, and games, children rapidly acquire enough knowledge and confidence to enjoy using a new language for communication and expression.
If, like me, you are a busy parent wondering when to find the time to introduce another activity, LCF, in partnership with After School Providers bring learning to the centres allowing your child to learn with their friends in a space they are comfortable and confident in.
