Bonjour, I'm Andrea, founder of Les Petits Pois Fun French and mum to two beautiful boys; Joseph (8) and Charlie (6).
I've always had a passion for French which I put down to the opportunities I was given as a young child, taking part in the youngest French exchange when I was just 9 years old. We each stayed with a French family and we went to school each day. We had learnt very little French but it gave me the taste for it. Little did I know it was going to be the makings of my career. After studying and working in France, I set out on my teaching career as a high school teacher, which I thoroughly enjoyed for 10 years.
After having my own children, I became fascinated with speaking and singing to them in French and wanted to start my own French sessions to give children as young as 3 months an early exposure to language learning. In September 2015, I launched Les Petits Pois Fun French and I now teach around 15 sessions per week across St. Helens, Wigan and Warrington; parent and baby, parent and toddler and after school fun, as well as running private sessions for childminders and within nurseries. Sessions are themed and the children learn through singing, stories, craft and play. The learning is wrapped up inside the fun activities. Although we are learning French, we cover many other areas of the early years framework and national curriculum.
Having taught older children for many years, they often dislike language learning as they find it extremely difficult to reproduce the sounds. Very young children can mimic new sounds almost perfectly, much to their parents’ amazement. Children as young as 12 months are able to follow instructions in French, clapping hands, touching body parts etc.
Language learners become problem solvers, creative thinkers, have better mental health, improved social skills, a more efficient brain, better focus and superior listening skills, plus more career opportunities and empathy with the world around them.
