Baston teacher brings Bilinguasing children’s language school to Deepings, Bourne and Stamford
A teacher passes on her love of Spanish to a new generation – from babies.
Amy Wild is part of the BilinguaSing language school and is set to expand its music-led Spanish baby and toddler groups to the Deepings, Bourne and Stamford.
Amy, who runs classes in Peterborough, begins sessions at the Deepings Community Center from September 20, for 0-4 year olds on Thursdays, and for Reception and Key Stage 1 children on Tuesdays.
She fell in love with the language at school.
“Thanks to my amazing teachers, it quickly became one of my favorite subjects,” Amy said. “However, it wasn’t until I moved to Tenerife that I realized what an important life skill it was. It’s such an important language.”
Amy, 23, spent a year in Tenerife teaching young children at a local school before covid lockdowns in Spain forced her to return home to Baston.
Determined not to let that stop her dream, she earned a first-class degree in Spanish and began teaching children online all over the world, with recent students from Miami and Hong Kong.
Amy also uses sensory play and movement in her classes and thinks early years learning is a real boon.
“Babies and young children have an incredible ability to absorb languages, so the sooner they start hearing it and singing it so they remember it, the better,” she added. .
