From birth infants make no distinction between music, language, singing and speech, and children can imitate the rhythm of a language long before saying the words.

Young children can imitate and reproduce other languages with perfect pronunciation.

Listening to music in a foreign language is a fantastic way of learning single words and whole phrases in context.

Viva Sing&Sign Spanish has been going from strength to strength for the past 9 years; We now have a 3 phase programme:

Stage 1: a fun, gentle, multi sensory experience for babies and carers

Stage 2: los niños (4-6 years) have classes on their own. They concentrate on understanding the signs and they then learn specially written songs, which they can sing with remarkable accuracy.

Stage 3: los grandes (6-8 years) use the signs to prompt them to say whole phrases in Spanish, with the songs as a springboard to create more sentences

The beauty of this approach is that it is totally inclusive, so children with communication difficulties are not excluded from the joy of being able to explore a foreign language.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my baby too young?

Never ! From birth infants make no distinction between music, language, singing and speech, and children can imitate the rhythm of a language long before saying the words.

Why singing and signing?

With singing, young children can imitate and reproduce other languages with perfect pronunciation.
With signing, meanings are absorbed subliminally,without having to think about translating

Do I need to be able to speak Spanish?

Not at all. We introduce you gradually to the songs and you learn along side your little one ! What better way of learning languages together!

My toddler is really shy..

Shy is fine. There is no pressure to join in, but you will hear at home that your little one has been listening and watching. One mum tells me that every night her little girl starts singing in Spanish, although she won’t in the sessions

How does your programme fit in with the EYFS?

We are fully aligned with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and will contribute to developing each child’s emotional and social confidence, as well as their literacy, language, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical and expressive arts development.

Could you come and do this at my nursery/preschool/school?

Of course! Just ask, or fill out the contact form
