Founder of children’s language business Lingotot praises Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, for teaching Prince George and Princess Charlotte to speak Spanish.

Lingotot delivers pre-school and primary school aged children across the UK and founder, Angela Sterling, was delighted to hear the news that Prince George can already count to ten in Spanish and his little sister is also learning the language. The revelation was made during a visit to a charity farm project in Gloucestershire, where the Duchess shared the news with a group of schoolchildren.

The royal tots join a growing number of youngsters learning a second language, including  Sam Faier’s son Paul who learns Spanish after appearing on ITV Be series The Mummy Diaries with Lingotot.

Up and down the country Lingotot teaches 10,000 children aged 0-11 each week to speak a range of modern foreign languages including French, Spanish, German, Arabic and Mandarin and the successful franchise now also operates in Ireland and Dubai.

Angela comments: “I am delighted to hear that the young royals are learning a second language with the help of Kate and the children’s Spanish nanny. Research suggests that children who know two languages can gain an academic advantage over those who speak only one. Linguist experts say that between birth and five years of age, the human brain is hard-wired for learning multiple languages and after this age it becomes much harder.”

She continues: “At Lingotot we understand that not everyone has the resources to hire a nanny and in our lessons we teach the parents too, giving them top tips on how to use the language at home every day. We share our multilingual songs, stories and games with the whole family.
