Et Voilà! Bearsden Care Home Residents Learn French

Residents at a care home in Bearsden are proving it’s never too late to learn a new language by taking up French lessons.

Meallmore’s Antonine House care home has teamed up with Glasgow-based social enterprise Lingo Flamingo, who visit once a week to provide interactive language classes.

Language learning in later years has been shown to have a number of benefits and it is believed that speaking multiple languages can delay the onset of dementia by up to five years. The classes help to improve residents’ cognitive ability, communication skills and well-being, as well as build their confidence.
