Award for language classes

Language classes for children, which take place in and around Alnwick, have received a prestigious award as a top activity for children.

La Jolie Ronde Languages for Children has been crowned Best National Activity for five to 12-year-olds in the national awards What’s On 4 Juniors 2014.

La Jolie Ronde licensee Frances Wilde, who teaches French to children in Alnwick, said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award yet again, especially as it’s the parents and children who have voted for us.

“Learning a second language comes easy to very young children therefore it is the ideal time to familiarise them with sounds and patterns of a new language and culture. My classes are designed to encourage a positive approach to language-learning and emphasis isn’t on reading and writing the language but on speaking, and repetition, therefore the children are much more happy, relaxed and better at imitating sounds and pronunciation.”
