Keep Reading ONLY If You Can Handle The TRUTH...

- Katrina H (Mom to Amelie)

"Raising a bilingual baby has been way tougher than José + I ever expected. We know these are Millie's formative years + her learning Spanish has always been important to us. However, with myself as primary carer and Jose not having his family around, we're not doing a great job of it... yet. So grateful for this incredible program so Amelie and I can get this learning Spanish thing done right."

- Lesley L (Mom to Haryn + Aeya)

"I have loved playing together with my toddlers with the beautifully designed Flashcards, their interest in the French translation has happened organically so the kids feel like they're playing more than being taught. The cards are a constant companion in the car, on airplanes and all over the home. Can't wait to see their familiarity with French continue to grow!” 

 

- Keilah G (Mom to Hunter)

"With The Cultured Kid whole app and program, it's been very simple. It's been something that I can just kind of do on a small scale or longer scale. There's just a joy and a vibrancy about every video - Like it's also the background music and what's being displayed and it just captures completing captures them."

REAL TALK: I USED TO SPEND MOST OF MY DAYS OVERWHELMED 

...with 2 kids under 2, our days used to be so crazy that surviving them used to be the goal...

...OUR week was spent hustling from playgroup to swimming lessons to soccer practice (seriously though - it was a lot)...

 ...The most language exposure my kids received came from watching too much Dora the Explorer on the TV...

But for real, our days were manic - it might have something to do with why we looked like this... Lipstick covered a multitude of bags under my eyes! :)

Lets just say I've come a long way since then...

A Long Way From:

  • Feeling like I've never had enough time to do the things I dreamed for my kids.
  •  Wishing I knew how to engage my kids in their play and learning.
  •  Thinking that kids who learned languages were for 'fancy people with lots of money'...
  •  Having zero confidence in my own ability to give my kids the head start they deserve...


Have you ever felt any of those feelings before?

If so, let me ask you another question...

Why haven't you reached your goal yet?

This can't be the first time you've tried to teach your kids about the world or even a few new words in your target language right?
In fact, if you were like me when I was searching for an answer... 
...then you've probably stumbled across dozens of language "videos" and "bilingual books" and "resources" while surfing through Facebook and Instagram...
When is it going to be YOUR turn to see those dreams become reality for your kids?
I say that TODAY, RIGHT NOW, it is your turn...
So why am I telling you all of this?
You're probably thinking..."I've seen a million of these pages about language learning programs and challenges and they all just look the same..."

You're probably thinking...."What makes what I have for you different, right?"
The answer is simple...
Most language learning programs for kids are made by people who haven't ever taught kids... 
 
They're filled with boring grammar activities, and the lessons are designed for much older kids. 
But after teaching my own toddlers the foundations of French MYSELF...
 I've discovered the 3 SECRETS to introducing a language to kids with ease in a FUN and engaging way...  
 
(But before I reveal the 3 secrets, let me tell you why this all makes sense...)
and YES... that picture below is my kids WANTING to read a French book...
Through MY OWN journey of teaching my kids French.... to shortly after being asked to run French lessons in Preschools around Australia...
To adding multiple languages to our preschool program + creating resources to support parents... 
...Not to mention helping HUNDREDS of kids all around the world learn languages...
There is NO ONE who cares more about your success than me. I have WALKED in your shoes...

...And just so you don't think I'm some random weirdo from the internet, 
let me introduce myself :)

My name is Shannon Kelly...


and I grew up by the beach...in a small town in Australia... 
where everybody looked just like me.  
And just 5 years ago, I was just like you in one way or another...

MAMA YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!

I wanted to give my kids the world and the advantages I never had..
I wanted to be the fun mum that my kids loved being with...
I wanted to tuck my kids in at night and feel like I'd given my very best to them...
I wanted to prepare them for an ever changing world...
 
But it all just seemed so HARD to do on my own...
I knew a second language would give them an advantage but I didn't know how to get started...
I had so many questions like...
 
...When was the best time to start teaching French? 
...Would I confuse them if I started when they were young?
....What's the best WAY to teach them?
...Will my child have learning difficulties if I use two languages? (NOOOO)
 
The more I read on the internet the more confused I got...
Have you ever felt confused when it comes to all this "bilingual / language" stuff?
 
THE ONLY THING I DID KNOW WAS THAT if I made a game out of anything, my kids wanted to play it.. So play we did!
 
WHO KNEW INTRODUCING OUR FRENCH COLORS COULD BE SO FUN! ... LOL!
So if you're anything like I was when I first started, I always felt confused when it came to knowing when and where to start...

But It Wasn't Just My Lack of French FLUENCY That Overwhelmed Me.

It was understanding HOW kids learn languages best...
 
...I remember the first time I walked into the language learning section of our local bookstore
 

I was SO OVERWHELMED...

 
I walked in ready to get 'all the things'...
 
...And I literally walked RIGHT back out. (yes this actually happened)
 
There are SOOO many different opinions out there on how to learn a language as an adult...
 
but there was very little on how to teach it - and how to teach young children...
 
It was HARD to know what I could trust....
 

Have you ever felt overwhelmed when it comes to knowing what to teach or even having the confidence to speak it too?

But the HARDEST part of all

Was trying to find people who would support me...
It seemed like every time I tried to teach new words or attempt to speak words in French...
Someone was right there laughing at me and questioning why I would even bother..
Look, I know what it's like. 

I'VE BEEN THERE....

So stick with me on this page...
 and I'm going to help you with ALL of these things that we've both been through.... 

IT'S TIME FOR SECRET #1 ...

SECRET # 1

THE BEST TIME To Learn a Language is BEFORE the Age of 6. 

The language + education industry has been LYING to us for decades!

YOU'VE BEEN TOLD..

...that there's plenty of time to teach your kids French... 
...that you don't want to confuse them when they're little. 
...that you should wait until your kids are in school and let the professionals teach it properly.
 
IT'S NOT TRUE!!!
 
It's not about waiting until they're older, it's about getting started NOW... 
It's about making the language learning process a NORMAL one as they grow up otherwise they will reject it when they're older and never want to speak it...

...because it will be much harder for them when they're older!
 
You need to start as early as possible...
 
We need to realise that the foundations we lay for our kids NOW, really matter!
Are you getting this? It makes sense right?

YOU'VE BEEN TOLD..

...That introducing a second language at a young age will confuse them... 
You've heard this right?!
 
...However what you might not realize is that it's NORMAL for kids in places like Europe to grow up with multiple languages, from BIRTH! 
 
...Not only are they NOT confused, but they are also growing up with additional academic / social and emotional benefits, our monolingual kids were missing out on!
 
...I felt betrayed... and upset that nobody was talking about this!
 But the TRUTH IS...
 
The language learning industry doesn't want you to know that there is a small window of time available to learn best - they would rather us learn as adults and struggle our way through 
- so we spend more money on additional support products to 'help' us.
 
So don't let anyone tell you that you'll confuse your kids!
 

Exposure to a second language from an early age is the ONLY way to teach our kids how to speak with native-like proficiency.

 
 

SECRET # 2

The simple yet obvious language learning secret crucial to giving our kids a head start, but for some reason we mamas fail to take advantage of is realizing...
YOU, AS A PARENT, HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO TEACH YOUR KIDS NOW. 
YES! EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT A QUALIFIED TEACHER!
Hear me out before you RUN AWAY and call me crazy.... 
 

THE FIRST TIME I EVER WENT TO START MY FIRST LESSON

...I'd bought a bilingual French book... and LITERALLY completely chickened out reading it to my kids...
I was like NO WAY - I can't do this. I was scared. I was terrified I'd get pronounce the words all wrong!
 But then I realized... you know what...

If I didn't teach them, they simply were going to miss out! 
I didn't have the luxury of having a French playgroup close to where I lived... 
and the cost of a French language tutor was completely out of reach!
If I waited until my kids were at school for them to learn - they would miss out on the benefits a language provides for their growing brains...
 
I realised that it's regular EXPOSURE to the language that helps kids learn... Not me running perfect grammar lessons!
 
I had to remember that I KNEW my kids better than anyone and that
MY job was to CREATE THE ENVIRONMENT for them to learn. 

YOU'VE BEEN TOLD

..."You're not QUALIFIED to teach your kids a language"

 
...That if you introduce it to them when they're young, you're going to get it wrong and RUIN your kids language learning for life.
 
THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE!
 
A parent is a child's first teacher - think about how much you have already taught your little ones... 
 
I remember years ago, holding my newborn son in my arms and feeling completely unqualified about how to raise him... 
 
I MEAN NOTHING PREPARES YOU FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD!
 
...But you work it out right? and learn on the go as quickly as possible.
 
Don't sell yourself short - You're actually AMAZING!
 
I GET MESSAGES EVERY DAY SAYING
"Shannon, I grew up with a little bit of (*insert any language you can think of)  but I just don't have the confidence to speak it, let alone teach it!!"

 

I tell you this now because it's easy to think that you don't have what it takes... 
But the reality is, it's your insecurities that are limiting your family. Not your abilities...
 
You have everything you need to give your kids the gift of a second language...
Our job as parents is to make the language learning process FUN for our kids! 

However, you NEED to get started NOW if you want to set your kids up for their future!

 

SECRET # 3

You Don't Have To Be Fluent In the Language To Teach It... 
You Can Learn The Language WITH Your Kids and Have Fun In The Process!

YOU'VE BEEN TOLD

...Unless you speak with a perfect accent, your kids will learn the language incorrectly.
....Lie! One of the most impacting experiences I had with my kids was learning WITH them! 
 
...Our kids are not looking for perfection from us. They are looking for connection. 
There is nothing more rewarding than doing the language journey WITH them... 
Think about the example you're setting for your kids
.
You can discover new words together. 
You can practice new words day in and out.
You can make memories they will look back on fondly!
 
Heck... teaching broken sentences are FAR BETTER than not teaching them at all...

THERE'S NO PERFECT TIMELINE...

You've been told your child should be speaking sentences by now. 
 ...and that if they're not, you're doing something wrong.
When working with kids, the goal should be longterm language engagement + working on the fun factor... Especially if you have a preschooler! 
 
Every child is different. You can't look at little Suzy who is singing French songs fluently and compare her to your kiddos and say "my kids refuse to speak right now" so I'm failing and I'm just gonna quit" 
 
That's why we give up right?! 
...Because we're comparing our results to someone else's! We don't realise that it takes significant language input before a child speaks any new words. 
 
Are you getting this?!
There is no perfect timeline for getting results.
 

THE BEST TIME TO START IS NOW!

It's the Babbels of the world that want to keep you pinned down by telling you that there's plenty of time to learn a language! 

They want you wait and learn when you're older, so it's harder for you - that way, you spend the rest of your life using their apps in an attempt to struggle to move forward. 
...The research is CLEAR - that the best time to learn is as EARLY as possible! 
Here's a pic of my kiddos and I reading a French book...
What would have happened if I quit because they didn't speak straight away?! 

We would have never developed a love of the French language and culture!
 That's why you have to focus on FUN at this age... 
 The REAL measure of progress is how much your kids SMILE when they learn...
 
...Even if they're not yet speaking a single word!
Seriously, you can start today and discover a smile you never knew was possible when it comes to learning! :D
