Young Learners Packing For a Picnic In Arabic!
On the return of the new half term, our young learners have been taking part in an exciting lesson in Arabic where they have been learning all about what foods to pack for a fun picnic. Students role-played excitedly as they sat outdoors on the blanket with their heaving picnic basket, this was easily one of their highlights of the day!
During the Arabic lessons, our young Learner’s have been learning about fruit, vegetables and other foods. They have been encouraged to use their vocabulary together in class and with their teacher. Learning a second language “boosts” brainpower, the area of the brain that processes information – in the same way that physical exercise builds muscles. learning several languages, in childhood, has advantages in other domains of functioning: it can lead to better executive skills more generally, and to better working memory skills.
