Maria Montessori did not leave detailed instructions on the teaching of foreign languages. However, in July 1913 in an interview with McClure's magazine, Ellen Yale Stevens - one of her closest assistants and former student - enlightens us:
Dr. Montessori expresses herself as heartily in favour of young children learning a foreign language. She favours the direct conversational method, using games, songs, pictures, and charts. The material for sense-training could be explained in one language as well as another. The sandpaper and script alphabets could also be used, and the proper phonetic combinations given.
For a child to become bilingual, they would have to spend 30% of their time "living" a foreign language.
This training includes one module.
The courses are open to all those who are interested and motivated by the Montessori pedagogy, they can be supported by employers and the employment center.
This training will allow you to teach English to children. There is absolutely no need to be bilingual.
The training takes place on Saturdays from 9:30 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 17:00 in the premises of the Montessori International School of Bordeaux-Gradignan, at 47, avenue du poterie - 33170 Gradignan
