London, UK (PRWEB) March 4, 2010
Under the watchword: “The more languages you know, the more of a person you are,” the European Commission continues to reaffirm its commitment to multilingualism for European culture. The recent launch of its Piccolingo campaign on early language learning is testimony to this.
Standing at the forefront of the European Unions commitment to early language learning is Helen Doron Early English which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. In 1985, when linguist and educator Helen Doron was searching for materials to teach spoken English to children aged 1 – 6 years old, she discovered that worldwide, nothing suitable existed. Developing her own innovative methodology, teaching system, and learning materials to fill the gap in early language learning, Helen Doron Early English soon became the first programme worldwide to teach English as a foreign language in the same manner one would learn a mother tongue language.
Indeed, when, in 1985, Helen Doron was asked if she had done market research to evaluate the demand for early English learning, she replied: “Market research is irrelevant in this case. Parents don’t yet understand the importance of learning English before the age of 7, nor do they understand the importance of the correct methodology and materials. It is my job to create the demand.” Implementing solid curriculums, high quality music, teacher guides and teacher training, the Helen Doron Early English education franchise can be found in 22 European countries and 31 countries worldwide. Helen Doron is proud to be a leading influence, paving the way for such powerful campaigns as Piccolingo, and looks forward to their shared partnership and collaboration.
Both the Piccolingo campaign and Helen Doron Early English will be reaching out to local communities throughout the year to promote awareness of the many benefits to early language acquisition.
“Piccolingo in action" will allow local communities the opportunity to circulate information on early language learning, present new activities in the field and promote existing ones.
