Listen, Speak & Learn is working in partnership with Destination Africa to create and develop the most unique and creative African cultural workshops for children and families.
Destination Africa now in its third series is turning heads and creating a buzz in the London area. Destination Africa wanted to create cultural workshops for children of the African diaspora where they could learn about the languages and culture of Africa, while development their knowledge, geography, history to name few.
These classes are truly amazing and are designed to work build children up holistically. Seeing the work for myself, it was something I had to get involved as our future leaders are being prepared today. Join us if you can at the Forest Hill Pools, Dartmouth Road, London SE23 3HZ on Saturdays.
This series of workshops have been themed “It takes a village to raise a child”. The focus is on hearing the voices of parents, guardians, grandparents, uncles and aunties to share what they do and provide some wisdom and advice to assist the children in their development. These workshops are a must for allowing children to gain a greater understand of themselves and the wider African continent.
In addition to teaching the basics of Akan Twi, children and families are also learning the basics of the sotho language using many techniques developed by Listen Speak & Learn. The Presentation & Awards Day has been scheduled for Saturday 25th March 2017 @ 12:30hrs, where the children will be showcasing what they have learnt with family, friends and members of the public. Feel free to join us more information to follow.
