Teaching the Kids
Growing up with Vici
Zac joined The Vici back in 2013 aged 6 years old and he hasn’t looked back; developing his language skills whilst keeping the sense of fun that is so important to his style of learning.
Last year he joined me on the summer French escape. It was such a success he has decided to do it all over again with me this year! We are going to have a great time and really flex our French skills; I can’t wait!
I was really touched to receive the following note from his Mum Melissa earlier this week:
“I can’t recommend Vici highly enough to others, you’ve created a wonderful model and Newbury is very fortunate to have you. I absolutely know that when Zac starts French at Park House in September, he will be approaching languages with confidence and an understanding that they are there to be enjoyed and played with, rather than simply rote learning. My intention was always to create a sense of fun and comfort for him, rather than the terrifying lessons I had at school with an absolute disciplinarian (although it did mean we all did our homework and NOBODY misbehaved)!
I would love him to spend another week in France with you all, he really enjoyed it and the immersive experience was fantastic!”
Let's go to France
We have just a few spaces left for this year’s trip so if you are interested in finding out more call me today on 01635 813 273 or click the button below to send me an email.
The 7 day trip leaves on 24th July. We will be flying to Lyon before taking the short journey to the apartment in Jura Mountains near the Swiss Border.
We believe that being bilingual is one of the keys to success in life.
We take what we do very seriously, based on our Founder and Director’s vision that languages should be ‘a lifestyle and not a school subject’; as a result, we have put together these key elements to help our young linguists excel in their language learning apprenticeships:
- EARLY START from the age of 2
- IMMERSION with a great deal of exposure to two languages in dedicated premises to create high opportunities and motivation
- SMALL CLASSES with a teacher to pupil ratio of 1-7
- CONSISTENCY with classes ALL YEAR long including schools holidays with dedicated workshops
- PLEASURE of DISCOVERY with fun yet challenging activities, inclusive of an introduction to geography and culture; using the latest techniques, IT resources and an access to a language library.
- CONVENIENCE! We offer 3 to 4 flexi hours per week you can choose from… Great for busy parents!
- HOLIDAY PACKAGES only
- 1:1 COACHING available
Here is how to make it happen for your child:
A life long love of languages...

“I am so pleased with the way Vici works with the children and that they do not seem to think of French lessons as work! Well done Vici teachers!”Mrs BERRY
“‘People often ask me why I seem so passionate about my job… I often invite them to come and spend a couple of hours surrounded by our young students…
It is simply amazing! Any of them from the age of 3 to 18 are given positive guidance and direction
and are inspired to learn foreign languages at a time when they are most receptive and when it is most likely to impact on their future.
They have a lot of fun doing it too! The atmosphere at VICI is one of such a happy community!'”
Meet our language experts
Hi, my name is Angeline Desain and I am bilingual...
Let me ask you…
- Do you want your child to be tolerant and open to other cultures?
- Do you want your child to be part of a global community?
- Be a competitive candidate in the admissions process for College or University?
- Improve his / her employment potential?
As the Head of French Studies at the Academy, (and someone who has traveled, learnt and taught foreign languages), I have to say that I have yet to find and experience a better place to educate children bilingually than The VICI Language Academy. I am therefore extremely proud to be part of the team and contribute to our little linguists’ journey!
Hi, I'm Nicolas Thenot, Academy Manager
I will be able to help you if your child…
- is new to foreign languages
- has had a short experience at an early age (may be at nursery?)
- is bright and needs ‘stretching’
- needs a ‘boost’ for school
- has lived abroad and you wish to pursue a bilingual education
- is raised in a bilingual family
Sadly, I won’t be of much use if…
- you are looking for a quick fix!
- expect a club with no time commitment
