September Blog

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, so I thought it was about time. After 5 years of teaching pre-schoolers languages I’ve learnt a thing or two. Here is my top 10.

  1. There is nothing better than seeing the face of amazement on the parent when a child says their first word in a foreign language!
  2. In fact parents are often surprised by exactly what their child can do.
  3. When they don’t want to do it (even if they have been) they won’t and you can’t make them! (Not that I’d try).
  4. Everyone has off days, teaching with a child throwing a tantrum next to you isn’t ideal but it happens and it’s not the end of the world.
  5. Nursery staff are always impressed that children learn the songs quicker than they do.
  6. Sometimes you have to throw your class plan out of the window and go with whatever works in the moment.
  7. Just because a child is really quiet and doesn’t speak doesn’t mean they aren’t learning or can’t say the words if they want to.
  8. Likewise just because a child is running around crazily doesn’t mean they aren’t taking anything in.
  9. Preschoolers really do love repetition, tidying up and helping (at least when the teacher is present!)
  10. Even if I’m having a bad day and my own kids are driving me crazy teaching a preschool class always puts a smile on my face
