The Award Programme asked parents and children across the UK to nominate their favourite after-school and weekend activities.

Every activity in the UK, had the chance to be nominated and voted for, making the Awards a true representation of how parents and children feel towards what is on offer and a reflection of their eagerness to reward the very best.

The Finalists Award Ceremony announced that La Jolie Ronde came out tops taking the title of “Best National Activity for 5-12 year olds.

La Jolie Ronde has been successfully offering language classes to nursery and primary aged children throughout the UK for over 27 years with fantastic results. The La Jolie Ronde methodology of language teaching includes immersion in French and Spanish from the very beginning, lots of repetition from week to week as well as introducing the target language through fun games and activities.

Local La Jolie Ronde Licensee Jill Simpson said: “We are delighted to win such an Award especially as it’s the parents and children who have voted for us. Learning a second language comes easy to very young children therefore it is the ideal time to familiarise them with sounds and patterns of a new language.

“With La Jolie Ronde the emphasis is on fun and my lessons are designed to encourage a positive approach to language learning. The children are therefore more relaxed and better at imitating sounds and pronunciation.”
