Learning languages is fun!

Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Bienvenue!


Vale Languages aims to pass on a love of language learning, to enthuse and inspire children and give them a valuable skill which lasts a lifetime in a competitive world.


Hi, I'm Katherine Smith, a modern foreign languages graduate with experience of teaching in the public and private sectors, both in UK and Europe.

I established Vale Languages in 2001 as a specialist group, offering language tuition to primary school children.

Since then, I've taught hundreds of children in local schools in the Vale of Glamorgan and established a reputation of high quality language provision.

Languages Literacy & Communication 


In line with the new National Curriculum requirements, Vale Languages delivers French and Spanish to KS 2 pupils.  Children are encouraged to take risks in new language patterns and sounds as well as focus on new cultures.  A strong foundation is established for further study at secondary school.

Lunch-time and after-school language clubs 


KS 1 & KS 2 children learn the languages through songs, stories, games and activities in a relaxed, fun environment. Emphasis is put on accents and children are encouraged to have a go at role play in preparation for using the language abroad. 


Annual shows 


Every academic year, we invite and perform for parents and teachers.  KS 1 children sing action songs and KS 2 children present a play. 

All children receive a certificate of attendance and some receive a special award for outstanding achievement. The clubs are not only about learning a language but growing in confidence and developing self-esteem.

Summer camps


Intensive summer camps are held each year where children attend for the whole day.  Language learning is consolidated through games, drama, art, craft and cookery.
