My story

I am Gemma, proud mummy to Bella, Sofia and Leo. 


Whilst on maternity leave from teaching modern foreign languages at secondary school, I thought it would be fun to start up a club singing and telling stories in foreign languages to my children and their pals and hence Bilingua Babies

was born.


I also liked the idea of starting a class that benefitted the brains of mums, dads and grandparents too, and provided them with the confidence and resources to sing and play with their little ones in a foreign language at home. My lovely colleague Lucy joined me on this adventure whilst on her maternity leave, before returning to secondary teaching.


I have over 14 years experience teaching foreign languages to all ages and abilities, having lived and worked abroad, as well as having taught in the UK's mainstream primary and secondary sector. My most recent role was Head of Spanish at an outstanding school in Oxfordshire. I love teaching my children foreign languages and it has been amazing to see how quickly they learn - now yours can join in too!
