A Leamington woman’s business has been named the best new activity for under fives.
Mel Thomas is co-founder of BilinguaSing – a French and Spanish bilingual singing, music and language class for babies and young children.
BilinguaSing – which currently runs classes across the region – including in Kenilworth and Leamington – have won best new activity for the under fives at the What’s On 4 Little One’s Ceremony at Drayton Manor Park.
Melanie said: “Children love playing with language, they are constantly absorbing sounds ready for when they begin to talk. Giving them the opportunity to broaden their horizons through the natural acquisition of a second language is such a gift and the benefits are far greater than you may ever have imagined.”
BilinguaSing is a unique language class which is different to the usual language classes on offer.
Melanie said the songs are infectious, the props used are engaging and unique and really capture the imagination.
She said: “Children embark on a magical journey every session, where they will meet animal characters, reach for the stars on a trip to the moon, swim with the fish in the sea and dance among the colours of the rainbow.”
Mel is a former Coventry Secondary school teacher and has always dreamed of sharing her love of language learning with other children and their parents, so is delighted to scoop such a major award.
Classes are suitable from birth and Mel would like to offer all readers of the Courier the opportunity to trial a class for free.
She said: “No language skills are necessary, come and learn a new language with your little one.”
