We are sooooo excited! Lingotot is set to star in ITV’s eagerly anticipated Sam Faiers; The Mummy Diaries.
The six week series which follows the day to day life of the hugely popular reality TV star as she finds her feet as a mother to baby Paul will feature a Spanish Lingotot class inside the young mum’s home.
Lingotot, which provides children’s language classes for pre-school and primary school aged children, was invited to help introduce the Spanish language to her nine month old son.
Sam, 25 who herself lived her early years in Spain and once spoke the language fluently is keen that her young son be exposed to a second language from a very early age and called upon the Lingotot team to help.
An hour-long session was filmed for the camera and based on a typical pre-school community class the class was filled with songs and actions, bringing huge smiles of delight to the faces of both baby Paul’s and the former TOWIE star.
But far from performing only for the camera, Sam has been keen to continue the classes and Lingotot has returned to her home to deliver additional support.
Lingotot helps thousands of children each week to develop a love for learning a foreign language, delivering sessions in French, Spanish, German, Chinese and Arabic. The award winning classes have been designed to engage children as young as a few weeks with age appropriate songs, actions, drama and vocabulary.
Angela Sterling, Lingotot founder said: “It is never too soon to start and teach a child a foreign language. Between birth and five years of age, the human brain is hard-wired for learning multiple languages. After age five, this critical window begins to close and it gets much harder to acquire a new language and a good accent.
“Babies’ and young children’s brains are like sponges and people are always amazed by what they take in. Often some of the first words of the young babies who come to our classes are in the target language and are used in context.
“We are delighted that such a high profile celebrity such as Sam Faiers has taken to Lingotot and hope that seeing baby Paul so engaged in the class and witnessing the joy it brings to him and his mum will help to shine a spotlight on the huge benefits and enjoyment to be found in exposing young babies to foreign languages.”
The six week series is being shown on ITV Be on Wednesday evenings from 12th October. Tune to episode 2 at 21:00 on Wednesday 19th October to see Lingotot, Sam and baby Paulin action.
