April 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
Applied Language Solutions is proud to be providing Spanish Language coaching lessons to the children of a local school; Meltham Moor Primary School. The Government recently implemented their National Curriculum initiative to increase language teaching to children in primary schools, and as a language solutions company, Applied Language agree that language skills are becoming more and more vital for children to develop as early as possible.

Paul Wheeldon, Chief Operations Officer, enthused: “The Spanish classes we are helping to provide will assist the children as they continue to develop and move forward in their lives and education. We strongly believe that language education is important, and feel that by providing primary school children with access to language learning, we can help to diversify their language skills and make learning fun as they practise communicating in a new language.”

“This school was chosen to provide local children with the best start possible in their language education. This is our way of giving something beneficial to the community which not only supports what we do as a company, but just as importantly, supports the Government in their efforts to introduce language education into the National Curriculum as early as possible.”

Applied Language is funding a one hour language coaching session, including providing fun yet educational teaching materials, once a week to children aged 7-8 at Meltham Moor. The sessions are began in January and are led by Joe Oya, a native Spanish speaker who originates from Madrid.

Mr Mike Whitfield, the Headteacher of Meltham Moor, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for some of our younger children to begin learning a language. All our Key Stage 2 children now study French and the Spanish coaching sessions will complement this. We are very grateful to Applied Language Solutions for their support.”
