Mini Languages online French platform for kids

What will be inside the new Mini French® online platform?

Every journey starts with a first step…

Hi, I’m Felicity! Comment ça va?

If you have come to find out about Mini French® online you will already know about the amazing benefits that learning a language offers and the advantages of starting at a young age.

However, you may also be thinking… I’d love for my little one to start learning French but I don’t know how to start? Or even secretly thinking, I don’t know if I have the confidence to do this… This is where I can help.

I am passionate about language acquisition and hold a degree in the French language. After becoming a mother myself in 2010, I developed a structured early years language learning programme which includes a suite of 7 Mini French® music albums. (Read my reviews on Facebook!) Plus, I recently launched a Spanish programme…

Based on consultations with linguists

The programme draws on research into language acquisition and how children learn! Mini French® has a loyal and connected community of families as they see the results my methodology brings.

Proud of our Awards

Mini Languages® has been successful in the Hoop Kids Activity awards as voted for by parents in two consecutive years. In 2019, I personally won an award as the activity provider who has had the biggest impact on local families. I love my work!

Nurture is the best method

I really think that raising my three bilingual children has been my biggest influence! Observing them and nurturing their language exposure is a great joy but has required determination. As a parent, I have been in your shoes and I want to share my support and experience with you.

The Mission.

I am on a mission to make language learning accessible, achievable and fun. By bringing Mini French® to as many families as possible, I want to empower children to grasp all the social & academic opportunities that learning a new language brings.

So what will the online platform be like?

With my team of designers and teachers, we are still finalising the platform which will be launched soon! Since I have been getting many questions from excited parents, I wanted to give an overview of everything you will find in there when it is released!

A clickable world!

Members of Mini French® online will access a beautifully designed ‘clickable world’ called Mini Ville. There you can explore videos aimed at children with their parents aged 2 to 7 to learn French together in a gentle and fun way.

Lose yourself learning in Mini Ville…

In Parent Mode, you will also find:

  • a suite of professionally designed printables
  • a library of step-by-step home lessons
  • an MP3 download zone

The overall aim is to give busy parents & educators the confidence and resources to take the learning away from the screen and bring languages to life!

Come and explore with us!

Will it be good for my family?

  • The material and videos are for parents & educators of all levels.
  • The extensive range of resources has been carefully developed to suit all types of learners and personality types.
  • The material has been tested on children aged 2 to 7.

Parents with younger children or screen-free families will benefit from using the platform themselves and then teaching their children using the methods in the videos.

Current themes include Family, Vehicles, Farm….but the topic areas will be updated and added to on a regular basis.

I am so busy, how will I fit this into my day?

The platform has been created by a busy parent for busy parents! Modern families need a set of ‘done-for-you’ resources. The home lessons, grammar exppanations and printables enable you to go as deep as you like into the learning. Or you can stick to the MP3s and videos.

The platform is packed full of simple ideas and ‘no-prep’ activities to build some French into your daily routine. Trust me, I have only developed resources that I know I would use myself as a busy mother of three. You can do this!

What is more, for a low fixed monthly price you will lock-in to accessing the Mini French® world and the whole library of growing resources. Your monthly cost will be guaranteed for as long as you are a member.

Fun, engaging videos

Video buttons hover over topic images allowing you and your child to select areas which appeal to you! Within each topic you will find:

Mini Music – Sing-a-long and learn using the on-screen captions! Music sessions which follow the real-life Award-Winning class programme. Illustrated song sheets included!

Mini Life – Learn key expressions and useful vocabulary easily! Follow the life of a bilingual family and their escapades! Plus, full script and grammar explanations in Parent Mode.

Building Blocks – Focus down on specific topics! Themed videos which teach keywords through repetition and cute visuals.

Join in the fun and learn key words effortlessly

Professionally designed printables

Print & Play – Gain access to our growing library of ready-to-use games and activities! Including things like themed playdough mats, small world play and early years activity sheets.

Memo Cards – ‘Collect-and-learn’ with our series of image-based cards complete with a simple pronunciation guide!

Level up with a database of Home Lessons

Take it further when you feel ready with my tried-and-tested lesson plans adapted for home use. Suitable for all levels! Parents and educators will learn too. Perfect for homeschoolers.

Proven to accelerate learning: Music Download Zone

I’ll be drip-feeding my entire Copyright music collection into the platform. These music albums are normally only available as part of my Award-Winning French classes. Parents and children love using the Mini French® music at home and in the car!

Community learning

By building a wider network of like-minded parents, my mission is to support a new generation of language learners.

I will be available with my teaching team to assist you in your goals. This is your opportunity to take the next step with your child and give them the headstart they deserve! Join us!

What will all this cost?

When it is launched the platform will have:

  • 40+ videos
  • 60+ printables
  • 7 lesson plans
  • PLUS the MP3 download zone!
  • All this will be added to and updated regularly

As the number of resources in the course grows the price will be gradually increased to reflect the value provided to families.
