Reuben is now 3 and a half. His most recent end of term report showed that he has an interest for the language, can answer simple questions, and knows some/most of the basic words. He likes adding to the existing vocabulary, using new words, and his behaviour is excellent!

It's amazing to hear your child speak another language and it's encouraging to know that he can pick it up even with so little input from home. I can't deny that I worry about him settling it at school in France, as from September he will go full time. I hope that the French lessons he has had up till now will give him a small amount of confidence. When we were there at Easter he was quite happy running round saying 'bonjour' to neighbours in the village, and had no problem playing with our neighbour's little girl of the same age (he spoke English, she spoke French!) I think his biggest concern at the moment is that he will be a 'lunchie' (staying at school for lunch) instead of being a 'homie' (coming home for lunch.)
