With primary schools obliged to teach languages, what could be better for class or home than the Bi-Lingual English-French Calendar with reversible pieces. A beautifully designed and colour-rich fabric wall hanging that is ideal to grace the wall of any bedroom, playroom kitchen or even classroom. Changing the calendar is a daily activity that children love to do whether at home or in the classroom. To change the language, all you have to do is turn around one the many soft embroidered pieces, providing extremely useful vocabulary helping understand concepts of time in two languages!
The Bilingual calendar will help stimulate conversations in both English and French, beginning with the date and moving on to the weather and seasons.
Featuring an easy to read blue centre panel, its cheery tactile appearance will have you practicing your French as soon as you get out of bed, making it a natural start to the day.
The Bilingual Calendar is built to last, with soft pieces that use Velcro style fixings to attach themselves to the body of the hanging. Whatís more whether itís raining, snowing or sunny, the symbols are appropriately shaped for instant word association and recognition.
ďThe children were very keen to get this up on the wall and in use, and if we didnít change it each day, they nagged me until we did!Ē one teacher of four and five year olds reported. This item is great for learning and extending vocabulary, including hot, cold and the names for each season. A lovely and colourful addition to any classroom or home.
