Teaching the Kids

Being bilingual is one of the keys to success in life…

We believe that being bilingual is one of the keys to success in life.

We take what we do very seriously, and our approach is based on my belief that languages should be a lifestyle and not a school subject’;

Let your child experience the magic of a local ‘little linguists community’… as well as weekly language classes throughout the year, we also hold regular cultural and linguistic workshops so that your children experience a foreign language in many ways, and not only through classroom teaching.

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!”

Since Arthur has been coming to French at The Vici Academy, he has so much more confidence in himself and even wanted to go to the boulangerie and order breakfast for us all when we were in France on holiday for half term. He loves going and learning new things.

Meet our language experts

Hi, I'm Ibtissam Djeha, and I am trilingual

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 a Coach 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 Nathalie Danon, Academy Director

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

Let's go to France

Each year, we organise a very bespoke French experience for children aged between 9 and 15.

The seven-day trip leaves in the last week of May half term. We fly to Lyon before taking this short journey to my beloved Jura near the Swiss border. The trip includes a day in French school, canoeing on the lake with expert coaches, 10 hours of French lessons, Pool and pizza party, a treasure hunt… wonderful immersive experience at the heart of the French community​.
