Play is the best way to pass on a language so after watching our vocabulary video lessons, you can use our flashcards to reinforce the same words, in a variety of different ways. #theculturedkid #languagesforkids
I've always had a soft spot for Germany. Not only was German the first language I ever learned but I also had the honour of spending time there as a child, going to school and eventually becoming fluent in the language. 🇩🇪 It's also one of the reasons why I'm so excited to be launching our Preschool German Language Program very soon! 🥨 If you've ever wanted to teach your kids German, make sure you join our waitlist as I've got something really exciting I want to share with you before we go live to the public! linkinbio #theculturedkid #languagesforkids pic via @wonguy974
Tbt the trip to Costa del sol two years ago, walking around the quaint and pretty town of Marbella. Remembering the bus trip from where we stayed, and a Spanish lady who used to live in the UK chatting with little Ozzy all the way and teaching him to count 1-5 in Spanish during the journey. . . . #familyholiday #littleexplorers #bringthekids #kidscantravel #spain #costadelsol #marbella #marbellaspain #theculturedkid @theculturedkid #family #parenting #travel #travelmum #childhoodadventures #worldschooling #travellingislearning #educational #europetrip #explorespain #exploringbyfoot #strangersonabus #strangerstories

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou ✨ One of my favourite things about the @raisingculturedkidspodcast is that I get to connect with some pretty exceptional people. Those who inspire me to step outside my comfort zone and believe for more, test what’s possible, share stories and build a community that will encourage you all the way to your dreams. ✨ That’s what my interview with Jess did for me personally.

“Since the jobs that our preschoolers will do probably don’t exist yet, our priority is to teach them the skills to adapt and inquire and question and cooperate… ✨ Life skills. ✈️ So much more useful than rigid concepts such as the alphabet.” - Caroline Bellouse ✨ I’d love to know your thoughts on this quote. . #theculturedkid #languagesforkids
“If you trust play, you will not have to control your child’s development as much. Play will raise the child in ways you can never imagine.” ~ Vince Gowmon ✨ The best way to teach your child a language is through play.

On new parenthood: ✨ “There is no wrong way to have a baby. There is no wrong way to feed a baby or to parent a baby or to feel after having a baby. It’s like learning a new dance. You may not know every single step, and it may not come easily at first, but what you end up with is your own beautiful routine that works for you and your little family.” — Micheline I love this quote from @cupofjo about parenting. It’s SO true and so the same when introducing languages. Have fun, take the pressure off and do what works for your little family!

Being exposed to the existence of other languages increases the perception that the world is populated by people who not only speak differently from oneself but whose cultures and philosophies are other than one’s own. Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try to understand each other, we may even become friends. – Maya Angelou ✨ #theculturedkid #languagesforkids ✨ Sweet capture by @theyesfamily

"The Hispanic immigrants who have come to this country have lost their native language. Why? Because Spanish was not perceived as the right language. They were punished for speaking Spanish and many parents decided not to speak Spanish to their kid's coz they wanted to assimilate as quickly as possible to the American culture." - Aileen Passariello-McAleer 🌺 Make sure you check out our latest podcast with Aileen from @mymamalingua as she shares her experience teaching her own kids Spanish and her passion for resourcing other families to do the same thing helping families reconnect with their heritage. #theculturedkid #languagesforkids #spanishforkids

French Travel Tips: Get up early and carry a watch. Most offices, museums, art galleries and shops close at noon or 12.30 for a two-hour lunch. If it's Tuesday, a cultural site like a museum might be closed all day. Don't expect to go to the supermarket on Sunday, unless it's high summer in a tourist area. Supermarkets are nearly all closed on Sundays. France is still a Catholic country, which means everyone regards Sunday lunch as sacred. There is a big ongoing debate about the morality of Sunday shopping. France rates very highly on indices of work-life balance and the Sunday lunch is one reason why. #theculturedkid #languagesforkids 📷 via @wonguy974

Can't tell you how much fun and what an honor it was to be interviewed by the lovely Shannon from @theculturedkid who just launched an amazing podcast called "Raising Cultured Kids".

Many people think you have to already be bilingual to teach your child to speak a second language, however the reality is it’s a little like teaching them to swim or even play piano. 🇫🇷 If you can create an environment of exposure to the language, provide them with plenty of instruction - both at home and in your community and create opportunities to practice, you’ll be amazed at watching just what’s possible. 👌🏽 If you’re raising bilingual kids at home, I’d love to hear your stories of what’s worked for you. #theculturedkid #languagesforkids #raisingculturedkids

Australia these days is an incredibly multicultural society but it wasn’t always that way. ✨ I remember going to school as a child and having a single Asian classmate and I remember him being picked on often because he was different.... like it was a bad thing. ⚡️ I’ve never forgotten that and these always labour to ensure my kids celebrate those who are different from themselves. Gosh we have so much we can learn from one another! 💫 It’s one of the main reasons why I wanted to capture the many varying faces of kids from all over the world in our language program - Both in our Flashcards and also in every video we filmed. 🌍 Not just so our kids connect with those who are different from them and build a bridge, but also so every child can see their own heritages represented and experience a sense of inclusion. 💥 Makes me excited to dream about what’s possible for the next generation. #theculturedkid #languagesforkids

We are having a little happy dance today as doors to #theculturedkidsclub opened and we are already welcoming new members to our Preschool French and Spanish Program. ✨ If you could teach your child any language, which one would you choose? #theculturedkid #languagesforkids
SPAIN TRAVELS Spending 3 days in Ronda is a perfect match. It is a small town and looks really really cute. The special sight is a bridge that connects both parts of the town over a breathtaking canyon with 3 waterfalls. It simply is incredible and hardly anyone is aware of this magic place. Unfortunately, you also have “typical” European streets: which means they’re paved with cobblestones. Therefore, you will only be able to use the carrier. 🏖 Don't forget to tag all your family travel photos with #raisingculturedkids to be featured as a part of @theculturedkid community. ✨ :: Sweet capture by @nappy_nomad

Being in Poland with my family is amazing! It has been a while since we all managed to come here together and I hope we can make it happen more often. I love hearing Leo & Maya pick up the language and use Polish interchangeably (with English). We got to see my cousins and aunts and uncles at one of the best weddings ever (#Szymila ) and today we are visiting my grandparents’ village in Mazury. 🇵🇱 Pozdrawiam serdecznie! ❤️
