How we started

Once upon a time in 2012, a former businesswomen and now stay-at-home mum, was trying her best to fill the long baby days. While trying to be the perfect mother, she visited lots of local baby classes to stimulate and entertain her baby, but as hard as she tried, she didn’t find anything that was quite right. However, one July day when the baby was sleeping, Emma also took a well deserved nap and had the most extraordinary dream that would change her and her son’s life forever.

It was here, that Bambini Lingo was born …

Our Vision

We want children from all backgrounds and nationalities to have an opportunity to utilise their “Magic Window’ for learning foreign languages.

Our Methodology

We immerse babies and young children in languages through a fun, musical and play-based environment.

The children are so enthralled with the experience, they don’t even realise they’re learning a language.

By Immersion we mean the entire session will be in the target language, we only use translation as a last resort.

For the language learning to be effective, its important that the contact with the language is frequent and consistent.

To help our parents continue the immersion method at home, we’ve created our own sing-a-long music albums, packed full of original contemporary songs. The music has now become an integral part of the Bambini Lingo experience and is available in English, French, Italian, Mandarin, German and Spanish.

Every class is a new Adventure!

We take the little ones on many adventures into the sounds, words and phrases of their new languages and they are kept very entertained by our engaging mascot TicToc and his magic trunk. TicToc is a very clever multilingual travel clock who’s been to every country in the world and is only too happy to share all his stories.

Our exciting classes are currently being held in Italian, French, German, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Mandarin and English. The languages offered varies depending on the location.

Emma Boardman

Founder And Creative Director

Emma hails from a background in show business and went on to run one of London’s leading event and entertainment agencies, for clients such as JP Morgan, Barclays, BP & Givenchy.

Despite having successfully entertained people around the world, she had one regret: She always felt uncomfortable only speaking English. In a multilingual world, monolingualism was something that she did not want for her son.

Emma was frustrated with the local offerings of the language classes available, so she developed her own language club, which was such a success she turned into an international franchise business.

Working with experts in linguistics, Emma used her performance background to create a methodology that turned little learners into little linguists.

Why Languages?

The young brain can absorb languages like a sponge and with frequent repetition and exposure.
