DISCOVER SOME OF our languages ROAD SCHOOLING HIGHLIGHTS…..
Roadschooling our children each week has allowed us to seek out new travel/education or adventure opportunities across Europe. So if you’re considering planning your own road trip or just adding something educational to an extended family holiday, we hope it gives offers ideas for educational family fun across Europe.
SO WHY DO WE BELIEVE IT IS IMPORTANT?At a time when 52% of England voted to conclude their long standing links with the European Union we remain fully committed in ensuring our young daughters do not share this insular point of view.... We fully intend to bring up our daughters as outward looking global citizens who share a love for the languages, variety and cultural uniqueness of each country across Europe. Not forgetting that speaking more than one language increases your brain capacity and you have better memory too.
The limits of my language means the limits of my world.Ludwig Wittgenstein
WHAT ARE WE HOPING TO ACHIEVE?
SO HOW DO WE APPROACH THIS?Differing from the other subjects taught, we have prioritised the learning of literacy skills, mathematics and languages on a daily basis. Both girls complete a series of daily languages exercises via the app (Duolingo). This App both motivates and inspires both girls.... they really love the chance to listen, speak and write the answers... gaining confidence to try out phrases or words with a variety of people they meet on this trip. In addition, we often use Google Translate to help encourage the girls to make friends with other children they meet at campsites. We believe its not only polite, but also essential that they retain some basic phrases across the languages learnt.... already Spanish, French and Italian appear to be their most favoured languages... but there's plenty of time and other countries to change that!!!
