A Brighton-based free school known for its entirely bilingual curriculum has partnered with a children’s cooking school to launch a new ‘Talk and Eat’ afterschool club which will be taught in both Spanish and English.
Cooking instructors from children’s cooking school; Cookery Doodle Doo will be taking children from the Bilingual Primary school and teaching them how to make nutritious international recipes as they practice their spoken Spanish with native speakers.
Katie Elfer, owner of Cookery Doodle Doo said:
“It’s been a struggle for me to pick up any foreign languages and as an adult I really regret not having learnt as a child. On holiday, I’ll always be interrupted mid-sentence when I ask for the toilet because I am just too slow despite all my enthusiasm to practice! The bilingual school is giving children the opportunity to learn another language at an age where it can be fun, feel natural and become part of their daily lives.
Socialising around the dinner table, eating home-cooked food and having a good chat is something everyone can appreciate, so that is what our ‘Talk and Eat’ club is all about. We show the children how to cook a healthy savoury meal from scratch and they learn some Spanish along the way before we sit and enjoy tucking into the results”
You can book the course now which is starts after Easter at The Bilingual Primary School in Falmer.
