Who created Et Patati Patata?

 

  • Caroline Eugenie launched Et Patati in 2014. Her background is a lawyer . "I decided to become Professeur des Ecoles francaises de Paris in 2012 and passed the french academic exam. My idea is to mix the french academic way mixed with a lots of of Fun!"
  • As a mum of 2 children , I love teaching in an enthusiastic and fun way. It is a rewarding job and as a mum of 2 I recognize how important it is to balance both work and family life.
 

What inspired me to start Et Patati Patata?

 

  • As a primary French teacher des écoles francaises de l’Académie de Paris (professeur des Ecoles), I wanted to bring the “savoir-faire” of our French maternelle (toute petite section, petite section…) to English children learning French as a second language. Maternelle in France is a European exception and we have a tailored, structured academic programme for “les tout-petits” (from 2 years old).

How do the Fun French lessons (1-15 years old) work?

  • Each structured of 50 minutes encouraging cognitive, physical and emotional development through language. We have developed a curriculum allowing children to learn french encouraging a fun and self- esteem environment.

Why learn french?

  • French is the second language worldwide in politics and the importance will be growing with the boom of Africa and the Francophonie.
  • “Foreign languages to be compulsory from age seven. All children are to be taught a foreign language from the age of seven, the Government will announce this week. Learning another language is good for young children and it will give them more options in education and work”.”Evidence shows that children may be better able to learn a foreign language if they are given the opportunity at a younger age”.Research also suggests that being taught a foreign language can help to improve conversation skills and literacy in English, as well as benefit study in other subjects”.”Where languages are taught, the standard is one 40-minute French lesson a week.” www.telegraph.co.uk

 

 

“Speaking two languages can slow down cognitive decline and help to keep the brain sharper in later life, research has found. A study shows that being bilingual has a positive effect on cognition among older people, including those who acquired the second language in adulthood. While previous research has investigated the impact of learning more than one langage, researchers have questionned whether people to improve their cognitive functions through learning new languages or whether those with better cognitive function are more likely to become bilingual. For this latest experiment, researchers relied on data from the Lothian Birth Cohort 1936, which is comprised of 835 native speakers of English who were born and who were living in the area of Edinburgh. Tha participants were given an intelligence test in 1947 at the age of 11 and retested in their early 70s, between 2008 and 2010. A total of 262 of the participants reported that they were able to comminicate in at least one language other than english. Of those, 195 learnt the second language before the age of 18. The findings, published in the journal Annals of neurology, indicated that those who spoke two or more languages had significantly better cognitive abilities compared with what would be expected. The strongest effects were seen in general intelligence and reading. These effects were present in those who acquired their ability to speak a second language at a young age as well as later in life.” Being bilingual can keep mind sharp, Katie Gibbons, The Times
