The lovely Lucas again!
Lucas has been singing in the car this time - what a sweetie! He's a great example of what level of language you can achieve at home even if you don't speak any languages yourself. Lucas' parents aren't fluent in a second language and he has learned all of this from attending our classes and practising at home. And he's only TWO!

Baby Anna following instructions in French
This is Annalise, the original little Lingotot, following instructions in French aged only 10 months! People ask me all the time why little children should learn a second language and this is why! You can also read more on our blog post last year by clicking here.

Lucas singing our numbers song
We love sharing the achievements of our little Lingotots with the world. We even have a special part of our sessions where we tell everyone all about what the children have been doing in the target language out in the big wide world. For example, some children say "bonjour" to greet an adult, some sing our songs to their toys and others will point to pictures in a book and say the correct word in French/Spanish/Mandarin. We're constantly fascinated and delighted by the ways in which they use the language they have learned in class.
Some of our proud LingoMums and LingoDads (and even LingoGrans!) send us videos of what their child has been up to. Most of us have a mobile phone with a video function and it's really easy to catch our children speaking a foreign language.
Here at Lingotot HQ we are always utterly delighted to receive these videos - they really do make our day. The example here is little Lucas. He's only two and has monolingual parents, so every word of French he has learned has started in a Lingotot class. We hope you enjoy it!
Do you have a short video of your little one showing off their foreign language skills? If so please share it with us! Email us your clips.
Lingotot foreign language sessions introduce babies, toddlers and young children to a new language through stories, songs, games and play.
