Bilingual sessions on BBC news

Did you see the BBC Oxford news last night 14th Dec 2016?

Two teachers in Oxford have started running French, Spanish and Mandarin classes for babies.

Young children can cope with learning up to four languages even before they speak English, research has shown.

The classes are full of songs, nursery rhymes and stories to stimulate their young minds.

This is the type of thing I have been doing with French, in Swindon since 2013 .

There are many benefits of learning a language early, some which may surprise you and which go beyond the use use of a second language.

Here are podcasts that explain more and about how children learn and benefits of learning other languages.

Episode one 27min   and Episode two 27min

Being bilingual, I very much relate to the descriptions given about how the brain works differently, I regularly experience this in everyday life activities.
