After 5 years of experience, Speaking-Agency has now formalized its partnership with CNRS. This young company obtained accreditation mainly due to its collaboration with childhood specialists.
A result of a 5-year collaboration with Maria Kihlstedt.
Maria Kihlstedt, a psycholinguistic researcher at the UMR MoDyCo (Modèles, Dynamiques, Corpus) CNRS of the Paris Ouest Nanterre University, has been working along with Speaking-Agency for 5 years.
For all those years, our language aquisition specialist has implemented many actions :
- Holding of a conference about bilingualism in Lyon and Paris
- Development of teaching materials such as the ‘activity case’ (malette d’activité)
Internal training for all our intervenors.
The ‘Speakers’are intervenors at Speaking-Agency. They are trained during half a day at the agency’s premises about safety and animation towards yound and very yound children.
Moreover, videos are made made available by the agency on the intranet for the Speakers, enabling them to watch this training again.
Elaborate teaching materials.
Intervenors are provided with elaborate teaching materials.
The activity case was developed with specialist. It contains :
- Adaptated board games
- A CD in English
A list of media resources is also available on their personal space online, such as press articles, videos as well as a bibliography!
