"I came away feeling completely inspired by your approach and resources - a really realistic and fun approach to teaching primary French. I love that there are lots of 'real' books involved for the children, and can see the power of the phonics teaching. All in all, I am now (excitedly) reviewing our provision for September 2018 on this basis! The fact that you have also taken the time and trouble to create mixed-age plans is just the icing on the cake! It will all sit really well alongside our 2-year rolling programme for learning French songs from Y1 to Y6." - Nick Kerin, Head of School, St Louis Academy, Newmarket, Suffolk
"A very informative and inspirational day. I am leaving with lots of great ideas about teaching new games and making the learning varied and fun." - Laura Curras Lino, MFL Leader, Nightingale Primary School
"I thought it was brilliant! Going back to school filled with new and exciting ideas." - Minnie Gayle, HLTA, Clerkenwell Parochial CE Primary School
