My Story: How I Started Teaching French at Home
My family and I lived in New York City for a couple of years. It was this melting pot of language and culture where our kids started picking up Spanish words and it felt wonderful.
Then we moved back to Australia and all that stopped just because language lessons weren't as accessible to kids.
So, I began hunting around for resources but nothing came up.
And so, little bit by little, we started to create our own lessons. It took a lot of time, research, and a couple of stumbles, but it's all worth it now!
We started with French. I didn’t speak the language fluently, I didn’t have correct pronunciation, I lacked in every department.
The biggest revelation to me during this process was, you don’t have to be perfect at it, you just have to start.
That was the biggest hurdle I had to overcome. Making mistakes was okay because the kids and I were on this journey of learning together. And that’s what mattered most, taking those steps forward.
My story is that I am an imperfect French-speaking parent. I still don’t speak French perfectly and feel like I’m only one step ahead of my kids.
But if you're brave enough to take that first step, and say to your child, “I don’t know the answers but let’s find out together." You’re going to be amazed at what’s possible.
So, get started with what’s in your hands today and give your kids that same boldness to take on the world!
