Our Chatty Families Learning Club is for families where English is not their first language, but they are trying to learn and understand it more.  Below is a sample of what we do and what we learn, also please have a look at our photographs of one of our group sessions.

  • We have tea, coffee and biscuits together and talk about what we did at the weekend – in English, of course!
  • Pupils join our Chatty Family Learning Club for half of the session and together we try to solve crosswords, do word searches or sometimes different festivals activities – learning together and playing games is a great way for parents and children to learn together whilst having fun.
  • We celebrate together pupils’ birthdays or special days in their lives.
  • The parents take part in the Rosetta Stone Computer Program.

We learn together how to…

  • talk to a doctor
  • tell the time
  • order food in a restaurant
  • ask simple questions at a shop
  • understand the English grammar
  • introduce ourselves
  • understand and appreciate different cultures

Within the group there is also the opportunity to receive help when filling in any forms or writing an official letter.

It is a great way to share knowledge!
