Hey, I'm Maria and welcome to my Kingdom.
Why do I wake up every morning?
To help you raise your children bilingual so that your kids can learn new ways of thinking and so that they can develop a better memory, have better career chances and delay dementia.
To prove those who doubt an ASD child can learn a second language wrong, and empower the parents of an ASD child to assist them on their bilingual/multilingual journey.
But I also help your children to learn a new language so they have no problems to adapt to live in a new country.
So what's my story? And why did I start the Language Kingdom?
I have always had a serious passion for language – I was born and raised in Germany but lived in England for 5 years and my English husband and I have two gorgeous children who we speak to in both languages. Why?
We don’t want a language barrier within our own family….
We want to expose our kids to more than 1 culture…
We want our kids to tap into the untold benefits of learning a second language
But the truth is that this journey of teaching them more than just English has not been an easy one.
It’s hard to persevere to teach them a second language especially when you’re tired…
It’s hard to find books, toys and tools that support their language development in German and create a need for both of them to use their German skills.
And so it’s become my mission to change this all for you.
Cue why I started The Language Kingdom.
Now, here’s a little around what I believe when it comes to your children and language…
- learning should be always fun
- don’t say “no that’s wrong” rather repeat the sentence in the correct form
- everybody can learn a second language
- exposure to a second language is important
- ASD children are NOT exempt – you need to find the right way to teach (interest-based learning)
I can’t wait to support you and your family on your child’s learning journey.
