What age are the resources for?
Mini Languages® is an early-years programme for age 0-9. The resource you decide to use may come down to the type of learning that your child prefers.
The online platform Mini Ville is a resource which your child can grow with. It incorporates our Music & Movement programme (age 0-5) along with videos, MP3s and printables for age 4-8. It is also a support for parents to learn how to teach their child at home.
The Music & Movement courses follow our class programme for babies up to age 5. These are parent and child classes where grown-ups learn too. Furthermore, you may have a six or seven year old who likes to sing and dance and may enjoy the course as well.
The pre-recorded Academy course is aimed at age 4-9. Children can work independently following the instructions on the video workshops, pausing where necessary. They will need help gathering or printing the required resources prior to the workshop.
What resources are on the Mini Ville platform?
Mini Ville is a new concept in language learning. It is a tool for kids and grown-ups alike to immerse themselves in practical, vocabulary-rich French. It is launching with over 140 resources accessed through a cute, interactive road map which will be added to as the community grows. You can be part of its evolution as I will be working with parents, creating resources based on ongoing feedback and demand.
