As citizens of the world, the pupils at Frith Manor School want to communicate in languages other than English. Speak Like a Native promotes the love and joy of languages … as opposed to rote learning stock words and phrases!

Explorers and Pathfinders Language Clubs for Primary Schools
Developed by our prize-winning team and described in The Times as a “psychological shift in language learning,” Speak Like A Native is all about the fun children can have at KS1 and KS2 with Spanish, French, German and Mandarin.
Children feel comfortable with our method, which reflects the natural way we all learn our first language and lets them build the foundations that will help in secondary school and benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Speak Like A Native is committed to equipping today’s children with the skills they’ll need to live, work, travel and study wherever their talents take them. We start by building the confidence they’ll need to survive and get by in a foreign language.
And as they work on these problem solving skills, the first benefit is their immediate educational development. This leads on to being prepared for secondary school and then a lifetime reaping the rewards of being multilingual. It has to start somewhere and it does take time!

My son did two terms of Speak Like A Native in his last year at primary school and now has a lot more confidence that language learning is nothing to be feared. My daughter also began classes earlier this year and she loves it! Just signed her up for another term. It’s great to see how she’s trying to use the new words each week.
