Love languages, love books... love le Bibliobook at Natta-lingo!!

Do you want to encourage your children/pupils to learn languages and to enjoy books? Do you believe in developing literacy through stories? I can help you!!


The 2 winning children will win the chance to MAKE THEIR PUPPETS and Le Bibliobook will VISIT THEIR SCHOOLS


​More details here.

I am Nathalie Paris, a qualified teacher who delivers primary languages lessons weekly in 3 schools in County Durham; the rest of the time I aim to support (with or without the bus) the hard work which is being done by teachers, parents and carers to develop literacy, reading and the learning of languages ; I do this by giving children and adults the opportunity to share stories in another language. They all learn whilst enjoying themselves in a unique environment.

Pupils and staff (up to a whole class at a time), children and their parents or carers, all can enjoy having a look around the bus, listening to stories in French, doing reading activities, speaking French with puppets, singing and playing games! You can check our availability here. Do get in touch if you would like to find out what the fuss is all about!

I also offer Spanish and German!

I have owned the bus for 2 years and a half years and am now looking forward to starting my 4th academic year with it ! It’s been as far as Leeds and Doncaster but has otherwise travelled around the North East : Lanchester, Stanley, Newcastle, Ushaw Moor, Consett, Burnopfield, Washington, Darlington, Shildon, Blyth, Cramlington, Ashington, Willington, Ebchester, Bishop Awkland, Jarrow, Trimdon, Stanhope... Where else will it go ? Is anyone in Yorkshire, the Lake District or South Scotland interested ? I’d love to drive over to work with you !
