The lessons are specifically devised for children aged between 6 and 13 years, making the most of their natural ability to acquire a second language. The emphasis of the course is placed on developing oral/aural skills, using drama and movement, games, crafts and musical activities.  This allows the children to learn in an intuitive manner, the sounds and intonation patterns that, at a later age, become impossible to reproduce. 

The main objectives of this programme are to: 

  • Utilise the children’s unique ability to learn a second language.
  • Foster early intercultural awareness.
  • Provide the children with practical linguistic tools that they can use in real life situations. 

By accomplishing those objectives, numerous additional benefits will be generated, such as a general improvement in the children’s communication and problem solving skills. If you require further information, you are welcome to contact the course teacher aisling.odonnell@ucc.ie
