Emma Jones and her partner decided to leave their jobs and take some time out to travel. After ten months travelling, they found out that they would be having a baby! Returning home with no jobs, nowhere to live, and their savings spent on travelling was a struggle (to say the least!), but they have both stuck to their guns and not returned to their previous jobs, which they didn’t enjoy.
Emma is training to be a Personal Trainer and will finish her qualification in May. In the meantime, she runs Mummy Active Buggy Fitness classes and Hola Bebe Spanish classes for young children and their parents.
Emma is half Columbian and was brought up bilingual. She believes that introducing children to other languages from an early age will help them develop into a well rounded individual who has respect for other cultures. It will also make it a lot easier for them to learn other languages fluently when they are older. As most primary schools now teach some form of modern foreign languages, Hola Bebe could give children a real advantage at school.
We have just attended a three week trial of Emma’s Hola Bebe classes and thought they were fantastic for both my nearly 4 year old, and my 18 month old. As well as being a fun and interesting class, it gives a great introduction to the language for both Mum and baby, Emma will be starting a ten week course in Exeter in April, but can also run group sessions in your home. Get in touch with her to find out more.
