Raise a multilingual who’s at home in English…

…without fears of speech delay or confusing your child!

Does your family use 2 or more family languages?

Did you have your baby in Geneva? Or did you move here recently with your little one? Those are such difficult things to do and you’ve been so brave to make it happen!

But now you have the responsibilty of raising a little person abroad and several family languages to deal with.

You’re probably feeling lost or that your language situation is all a big mess. Are your family and friends giving you a hard time about this too? They might be concerned about your decision to use all your languages with your child, worrying it will be too much or will affect schooling. Or maybe they’re complaining because they think they won’t be able to speak English with your little one.

  • Are you worrying about how you’ll raise your child with English?
  • Would you like them to learn English as if they were growing up in an English speaking place?
  • Are you fed up of raising your child abroad without having a local network?
  • Are you stressed that you won’t be able to maintain your other family languages?

Make language learning your lifestyle

Stop worrying about your child’s language development and start enjoying bringing them up multilingually with English.

Soon you’ll have a child who is able to happily chat away in all your family languages and create strong relationships with your family who live in other countries.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! We truly love your lessons. My son was practising some English words today.”

LAURA and her son – NOVEMBER 2020

“Thank you so much for the English lessons. The girls have really enjoyed them and they have gotten more confidence with understanding and speaking.”

CHRISTI and her two girls – MARCH 2020

I know you want all this, but you might be thinking…

I’m not confident with my English, how can I make sure my child learns it well?

We already speak English at home, will this method still help our family raise a multilingual child?

My child doesn’t sit still, how will they be able to attend English lessons at 2 years old?

How will learning English with the English Voice Academy help us with our other family languages?

Our courses are specially designed to support international families with English speaking parents. Parents with English as an additional language – you’ll have access to an experienced language teacher. Feel free to ask for feedback on your English during the scheduled parents’ social moments. Just by attending our classes with your child you’ll become more confident with your English too!

Families who already use English will benefit from access to beautiful books they don’t have at home, a wide range of nursery rhymes they might not remember from their childhood and the close community we’re building. Increasing English input will help your child develop their language skills almost as if they were growing up in an English speaking place.

We know that toddlers have a short attention span and need to move their little bodies. Our lesson plans include a lot of variety in activities and opportunities for movement. Be assured that little children are learning ALL THE TIME even when they appear to be distracted or busy with something else. Respect for the child is a very important part of our teaching method. We’ll give your child the space they need to wander and process during our lessons. Your little one won’t be forced to participate at any time and will be allowed to join in with activities at their own pace. We also know that sometimes 2 year olds meltdown and tantrum – if it happens we’ll get through it together with no stress, ok?

Our teaching team is made up of multilinguals who are eager to promote multilingualism. We’ll happily share our experiences and tips during our lesson social moments. We organise school events throughout the year, some of which will help you learn how to develop all your family languages. You’ll receive activity packs which focus on family language planning. You’ll have all the tools you need to succeed!

Let me introduce myself…

I’m Roya Caviglia. I’ve taught English for 20 years while living in several European countries. My 2 children were born in the Netherlands and we’re raising them with 3 languages in Geneva – English, Italian and French. I’ve specialised in focusing on communication with babies and I know how to meet toddlers where they are to maximise their learning opportunities.

I know how hard and isolating having children abroad is. My daughter was a toddler during the worst of the pandemic. Together we’ll get your family on track with raising a happy multilingual child who’s at home in all their cultures.

My team and I are ready and waiting to support your family in reaching your English language goals!

Get the tools you need to raise your child with all your family languages.

As part of the English Voice Academy Family, you’ll have access to all the necessary resources to succeed in raising your child with 2 or more languages without stress or overwhelm.

If you’re ready to attend our classes with your toddler and put into practise what you learn as a family you’re in the right place!

How does the Toddlers English Voice Academy course for 2-3 year olds work?

Throughout the year we’ll cycle through themes such as:

Family

Numbers

Food

Animals

Colours

  1. We’ll learn a nursery rhyme together
  2. We’ll enjoy a beautiful book
  3. We’ll play a game or do some crafting
  4. We’ll make sure to repeat material (songs and books) very often to give your child the best opportunity to learn new words
  5. Social moment: There’ll be some time for the parents to chat and get to know each other so you can build your village!

FAQs

At what age can children join a group?
The toddler class is for children aged 2-3. However, we know that every child has their own individual development so they might be able to join the class a bit earlier or stay a bit longer. Email to ask if you’re not sure.

Will we get a spot in our preferred class?
We’ll do our best to put your child in your preferred class. If it’s already running and has space, you’ll definitely get a spot. If you’re joining a class that starts after the summer, we’ll do our best to make sure everyone has a spot in their preferred class, but there might be some changes to the schedule. In all cases you’re covered by our guarantee.

When does the course start?
If the class is already running, you can start at anytime as long as there is a place available in your desired class. New classes start as indicated on our schedule (see image above). If your course starts after the summer, enroll now and make your first month’s payment to secure your spot. Then your automatic payments will be paused until you’ve completed your first month’s lessons.

How long is the course?
The course is ongoing so that you can make language learning part of your lifestyle. There are no in-person lessons during Geneva academic holidays but we know that children suffer language loss over long breaks. To combat this you’ll receive fun activity packs that you can work through during the holidays. They’ll help you maintain consistency with using English in your family and develop your family’s multilingualism. Nothing overwhelming, I promise. Mainly suggestions for optimising things you’d be doing with your child anyway, but so you can do it in English, like reading or playing together. When you finish the year’s programme or your child has a birthday you can continue with the subscription and join the classes for the next age group. You simply stay until you want to leave.

Where is your classroom location?
Check the schedule image above for current lesson locations. We’re looking for a more permanent solution. We would love an affordable space that we can grow into. If you know of a place please send us a message.

Do you use the Swiss or French academic calendar?
We use the Swiss school holiday schedule for ALL our courses, even those held in France.

What happens if we can’t come to a lesson for any reason?
Should your child not be able to attend a class, that class cannot be recuperated. You can however consult ClassDojo where our teacher shares what we do every week in class. We will do our best to share song links etc, if that’s possible, so you can catch up.

If we’re going on holiday for a month or two, do we still need to pay the monthly fee? Or can we pause payments and keep our class place?
The monthly fee is payable for as long as your child is enrolled. If you wish to take a break of many weeks you could cancel your subscription but we cannot guarantee your place when you return. Please note, there are no in-person lessons during Geneva academic holidays but we know that children suffer language loss over long breaks. To combat this you’ll receive fun activity packs that you can work through during the holidays. They’ll help you maintain consistency with using English in your family and develop your family’s multilingualism. Nothing overwhelming, I promise. Mainly suggestions for optimising things you’d be doing with your child anyway, but so you can do it in English, like reading or playing together.

Can both parents come to the lesson with our child?
One parent can accompany their child to the lesson.

Do I have to stay for the lesson or can I drop off my child and come back later?
One parent is expected to stay and participate in the toddler classes. We cannot take care of your child without a parent being present.

Will you open classes on other days?
If you’re interested in attending a class on another day, let us know and we’ll put you on the waiting list and investigate locations. We need a minimum of 2 families to open a new class so tell your friends!

Can we change from one group to another?
You might be able to swap to another day or location depending on availability. Contact us to check.

What happens if a teacher has to cancel a lesson?
In the case a teacher cannot attend a lesson we will send you a replacement teacher. In the unlikely event that we are unable to provide a replacement for our teacher, we will provide you with a digital study pack. Maybe you’ll join up with the rest of your group and work through it together in the park!

What’s the difference between the EVA Community and EVA Family?
The EVA Community is made up of families who come to our events, receive our content by email, follow us on social media and who previously subscribed to any of our online or in person courses. The EVA Family is everyone currently subscribed to our courses.

Is the teacher a native speaker of English?
Some of our teachers are native speakers and some are not. This has no effect on the quality of our courses because being a native speaker doesn’t guarantee a person will be a good language teacher. All our teachers, whether they’re native speakers or not, are language learners, qualified teachers, and passionate educators. They’re the perfect people to support you on your family’s multilingual journey.

Are these classes for families who are non-native speakers or native speakers of English?
Our courses are specially designed to support international families with English speaking parents. Parents with English as an additional language – you’ll have access to an experienced language teacher. Feel free to ask for feedback on your English during the scheduled parents’ social moments. Just by attending our classes with your child you’ll become more confident with your English too!

Families who already use English will benefit from access to beautiful books they don’t have at home, a wide range of nursery rhymes they might not remember from their childhood and the close community we’re building. Increasing English input will help your child develop their language skills almost as if they were growing up in an English speaking place.

Is there a community space for our class?
You will be added to our ClassDojo online community. This will really help with building your local network.

Will you have lessons for other age groups?
Yes! We’ll open baby sign language classes and classes for pre-schoolers (3-4 year olds) soon. If you’re interested in these courses please let us know by email. We’ll make sure you’re the first to know when they’re available for enrollment!

Can I pay via Twint, bank transfer or cash?
We can only process your monthly payment via the Stripe check out accessible via the button above.

Can I pay per year?
At this time we can only process monthly payments.

Do you offer a guarantee?
We know this program works and we’re sure you’re going to love it. However, life with little children is complicated so we offer a no questions asked 30 day money back guarantee. Just email us to organise your refund within 30 days of your first lesson.

How can I cancel our subscription?
You can cancel your subscription by sending us an email. We require one month’s notice from your usual payment date.

I still have a question, who should I ask?
We’d love to help. Email us at info@englishvoiceacademy.com

We have been warmly welcomed to English Voice Academy reading session by Roya with my 2 years old daughter. She was quickly refreshed with fresh fruit and healthy, hommade snack, that was very helpful after crèche. She listened the amazing story in a playful environment and even she does not speak English she was captured by it. On the way back she started saying English words. Such a lovely and educational activity to expose and enreach children with English language and children's literature.

If you’re looking for an English teacher I can totally recommend English Voice. We’re raising our daughter bilingual English-Dutch and started with Roya when she was a baby with sign language. It has helped us lot, because my girl was able to express herself before she was able to do that with words.As a preschooler we did the English in the park lessons. Where she gradually got used to English lessons in a more structured way.Since start of primary we do the Cambridge English lessons and after a 1,5 years now she reads the same level English as Dutch (going to a Dutch school) and is completely comfortable speaking English and translating either way.The lessons are fun, flexible and follow the rhythm and speed of my child. Without pressure she learns a lot and she loves to go to her lessons.
Thank You for the Early Pottying MasterclassDear Roya,I wanted to thank you for the Early Pottying Masterclass. I'm already seeing positive results by applying the techniques with my baby. I am absolutely stunned by the capabilites of my 16 month old. Your insights have been incredibly helpful.Best regards,Filipa

I've attended two webinars by Roya - one on early potty training and another on raising a multilingual child (done jointly with Our Parenting Journeys) and both of them have been brilliant resources for me and my partner as we navigate the ups and downs of raising a toddler. Roya is a brilliant professional who offers a variety of much needed parenting/baby related solutions!
