  TURN YOUR NATIVE or SECOND LANGUAGE
INTO YOUR SUPERPOWER

And use it to enchant & empower
a whole new generation of little world citizens.

 

Have you ever considered how fun and beneficial it would be to introduce your language to children in early learning environments or in your very own language sessions . . . 

BUT


* You have no idea how to start
* You do get started, but then you feel stuck after greetings and counting
* You don't know how to make your language really engaging for the children


OR

* Maybe you work with children in a bilingual/multilingual environment and you'd really love to add that extra spark of magic and creativity to your existing language activities to continually inspire and enchant the children!


 
WHAT IF . . .

YOU COULD MAKE SHARING YOUR NATIVE OR SECOND LANGUAGE WITH CHILDREN FEEL LIKE MAGIC?

 

YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE IS YOUR SUPERPOWER!

We have both French and Australian education departments suggesting to "do this, do that” . . . and then you come along and show us HOW. You really reignited everyone's passion. It was fantastic; I loved it!  

 

Véronique, Director French Australian Preschool

It’s the facial expressions, gestures, interaction and humour that I’m taking with me to add to our Greek experiences with the children; it will make so much difference, thank you!

Stella, St Nicholas Preschool

Thanks so much for the great tips and for all the fun! I’ll definitely be creating some new cultural experiences with your techniques. A lot of great ideas.



Lynden, 
Primary School Italian Language Teacher

I have so many ideas now – I'm going to use these techniques for a focus theme that we’re doing over the next 2 weeks about transportation in Mandarin.  It's been so much fun, I can't wait to try it with the children!

Serena, Early Childhood Educator, Chinese Australian Preschool

I absolutely love the way you turn every activity into a game/something fun! I cannot wait to apply these techniques to the activities I will plan for term 3, so exciting; I've been using some of your techniques since the workshop and the children are just loving it!

Shay, French Australian Preschool

Your contribution is sooo very valuable. I’ve been teaching for a long time and I never thought of the simple things that you’ve shared with me in just two little minutes! We really need your support in our sector.

I feel very proud


Your workshop was really inspiring, and it's so helpful to have the follow-up coaching and all the posts and training videos in the facebook group afterwards - they really keep me motivated and give me ideas to keep doing more Russian with the kids.

All of this week I did the introduction with the airplane, and then played the game "small or big". The children loved it so much, they asked me if we could play it today as well!!! And they then were showing me other objects in the playground saying small or big in Russian.
I feel very happy. And proud.

Elmira, Early Childhood Educator

I loved it!


Thank you for your amazing workshop - I loved it!

I left feeling invigorated, encouraged and supported.
Before the workshop and coaching, I had tried to introduce some Cantonese to the children, but I really didn't know how to do it and make it fun - I struggled to keep the children engaged and I really didn't feel confident in myself.
I especially want to thank you because yesterday my Cantonese was amazing!  All the children were engaged - they did all the actions with me, copied my words and were excited up to the end!  I feel really happy and so much more confident now.  Thank you for taking the time to practise with me.
Connie, Early Childhood Educator

Learnt a lot!

Thank you very much for your time today Judith !
Learnt a lot, cannot wait to try those strategies when I go to work on Tuesday ! And thanks for the template - can't wait to play with it!

Tina, Early Childhood Educator

Really grew the educators' confidence

Thanks for the wonderful inspiring workshop!
5 of my bilingual 
educators went to Judith's workshop; their feedback
was really 
positive and they were so enthusiastic to practice what they
had learnt in our preschool.

Judith's demonstrations and resources have given the
educators confidence to use their first language as a
learning opportunity with the children.

I would recommend Judith to any service looking for ideas
and inspiration for including languages and culture in to the
program. She quickly built up a rapport with the educators
and was understanding and supportive as they developed their
new skills and confidence.

"Judith goes so far above and beyond; you get all the support you need and more!"

Lots of laughs at Spanish time with Adriana at the childcare centre where she works in Canberra!

All the way from Argentina, Adriana's brings plenty of Spanish fun to the childcare centre where she works, and her local Spanish sessions outside of childcare attract those who have a Spanish heritage AND Aussie children who are discovering Spanish for the first time!

"Judith has been amazing - she believes in me more than I believe in myself. I couldn't have done it without her!"

Natalia, hailing from Colombia, completed the live online VOICE course and now runs a vibrant Spanish playgroup for toddlers and preschoolers at a local community centre in a coastal town in Queensland, Australia.

"I absolutely love running my English sessions for Italian children, and it's all thanks to Judith's techniques, game ideas and incredible support.  I can't thank her enough!"

Based in Italy, and after completing the live VOICE online course, Chiara has gone on to run her gorgeous Rainbow English Club for Mums & Bubs, for toddlers, preschoolers and older school children, and has even co-hosted a 12-week Summer Bootcamp (enchanting Italian children into the delights of the English language)!  

 

 SKILLS TO TAKE WITH YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR CAREER


Once you have the framework & techniques, you will be able to tweak them and infuse them with the magic of your own personality & style. The confidence & skills that this will build within you is a quality that you can carry with you throughout each step of your career.

Whether you are . . .

* working directly with the children in a classroom

* filling the creative shoes of the Room Leader

* guiding & inspiring your own team of educators as a Director or Educational Leader,

or

*  running your own sessions outside of childcare

The benefits & joy that you bring to your early childhood programme, and the opportunities that you potentially create for the children AND for your educators can open so many exciting doors.
