      The advantages of hiring an English speaking Nanny

      Amazing Results
      Nannies, governesses and tutors generally spend between 40-50 hours per week with the children they are working with. Due to a complete immersion of a new language and enjoyable learning environment, your child will learn a new language at an accelerated speed. With this intensity, a language can be learnt much faster than the original approach to learning a foreign language.
      Motivated Children
      When your child has the opportunity to learn a foreign language through playing and communicating with a native speaker on interesting topics for the child, the motivation to learn a new language is much higher and they don’t tend to feel as though they are under a lot of pressure as they are enjoying the process in a way that feels more acceptable to them.
      Goodbye to language barriers
      The earlier a child begins to learn a new language with a native speaker, the less likely the child is to form a language barrier. By learning a foreign language from an early age, the child will subconsciously use the same methods as in the study of their native language.
      Learning with professionals
      Whilst learning English with an English nanny or governess, your child is able to learn a new language with an experienced professional and in some cases teacher, however due to this immersion being in a less formal environment it allows your child to feel more confident in their approach to learning, self-expression and development as opposed to a classroom environment where they may feel judged or embarrassed in front of their peers.
      Manners, etiquette and discipline
      During our selection process, we recruit the most professional and experienced nannies, governesses and tutors. You can rest assured that your child will have a great example to follow in terms of a teacher, mentor and friend whereby they will soon begin to imitate the manners, etiquette and discipline of an individual they look up to and respect.
      Entry into international schools and universities
      By learning English or any other language from an early age with a native speaker, children soon become bilingual. Both languages feel  like a native language to the bilingual child if they are exposed to the foreign language for a long enough period of time. The child begins to think and even dream both in their native language, English or other. There is no longer a need to translate words and sentences in their head as they naturally think in their second language. This offers a huge advantage for your child if you are thinking of entering them into an international kindergarten, school, college or university.
