Talking Matters

Talking Matters is a national campaign to get us talking more and differently to babies and young children.
As part of this initiative, ESOL starter packs have been co-designed by the Talking Matters team,  ELP staff (Auckland West), volunteers, Culture and Language Assistants (CLAs) and language experts.
