Our History

Philippe Fraser:
I lead an amazing group of teachers, designers and programmers to bring you our new Language Fantastic Home-Learning Educational Language Course. I'm so excited about this project and to be able to develop these games for the children in our schools and to share our excellent in-house resources with children for home learning.

Philippe Fraser I was lucky enough to be brought up bilingually, speaking French and English at home;  I wish every child could be given this amazing opportunity. I wish every nursery school everywhere in the world was at least bilingual - if not trilingual.

I learnt German at school (obtaining an A at  A-Level). At the age of 16 (whilst still in full time education) I became a part-time professional interpreter with "Language Line", an agency where I worked for clients such as the courts, the police, the Home Office, Amnesty International and private clients etc.

I was awarded a degree in Japanese at SOAS (University of London) where I also became fascinated by the study of linguistics. In 1997 I was awarded a scholarship to study at the prestigious university of Waseda in Tokyo. More recently I have started to learn Spanish and British Sign Language (my 6th language) as hobbies.

OutstandingAfter carrying out research into the best bilingual and multilingual schools in Paris in 2007, I became the Director of an existing nursery and transformed it into a bilingual setting: Mars Montessori Bilingual Nursery School in Angel , London.  We have fantastic teachers at Mars, and we learnt firsthand the best ways for children to acquire new languages and also how to best involve parents. In November 2011, Ofsted awarded Mars an "Outstanding" rating in every single category of education & care.

In 2011 I joined forces with Amandine Alys & Olivier Bertin and opened my second bilingual nursery school as a joint venture, Les Petites Etoiles in north London. Again, we are building a brilliant team to look after and teach the children.

In May 2012 our newest nursery Les Trois Oursons opened. Here we accept children from age 1 - an absolutely ideal age to start experiencing a new language.

I'm absolutely passionate about what I do. I love my job, my teams and the families we look after.

It's a privilege and an honour to look after so many children - and see their transformation over the years.

I can't tell you how excited I am to be bringing you Language Fantastic Home Learning Games - you'll be amazed at how quickly your child will learn new words in French.

When it comes to learning a new language, research and evidence show one unambiguous conclusion: the younger the better. So without further delay try our free sample game by clicking here, and then sign-up for Language Fantastic
