Viva! Sing Spanish @ The Yard

Gracelands Yard,
From birth, infants make no distinction between music, language, singing and speech. Children can imitate the rhythm of a language long before saying the words. Young children often reproduce other languages with perfect pronunciation. Listening to music in a foreign language is a fantastic way of learning single words and phrases in context. Website

About Kensal Green

Kensal Green is a neighbourhood in the London Borough of Brent. The area is also referred to as Kensal Rise. The names Kensal Green and Kensal Rise are used somewhat interchangeably by non-residents to denote the same neighbourhood, although residents differentiate between the areas based on proximity to the local tube and train stations.
