Meet the Mama Behind the Magic:
Creating A World of Curious, Cultured Kids

Hey there, I’m Shannon

An Aussie mama of 2 with a passion for travel, culture, and of course (!) international food

After living in New York City with my young family and introducing them to a melting pot of language and culture - I knew I wanted my kids to engage with the world around them so they could grow up and take their place on the world stage.

After relocating back to Sydney, I started a small French playgroup (as a non-native speaker) where I started to see my kids pick up new words every day.

That’s when I discovered a new way to make languages MORE fun, MORE exciting, and MORE effective - even if I didn't speak the language fluently myself... and that’s when the Fast Track to Fluency ™ Framework was born.

I had other mamas reach out to get support and started sharing what I was doing and now I have the honor of serving over 40,000 plus families around the world.

In The Cultured Kid, you’ll get the tools and confidence you need so your kids grow up loving learning a new language.

Because I know from personal experience there’s nothing quite like seeing your kids pick up new words every day while they have fun - it’s magic!
