Learn French

BILINGUAL CLASSES

Your child speaks French as he/she went to a French school in the recent past. He/she also speaks French because it is spoken at home as a second language of communication. In other words, French is a part of your child’s life!

These courses have two objectives: to support French language to become a solid medium for intellectual and personal development for genuine cross-cultural children AND/OR to maintain their school knowledge and savoir-faire that is necessary to join the French education system.

Children are grouped according to their age and/or level in French.

Please note that children are only eligible for these classes after taking a placement test with one of our teacher who will assess their level in French.

LES TODDLERS BILINGUES

2 to 3 years old

Saturdays 9:30 am to 10:15 am

 

A fun way of practicing French outside your home! Children engage in playful activities through songs, dance, stories, games, and more. Children are encouraged to form and understand new sounds, and also discover the diversity of the French heritage as it is taught in Maternelle. 

LA MATERNELLE
 

3 to 4 years old

Saturdays 11:45 am to 12:30 pm NEW CLASS

 

This class is for bilingual children. The course focuses on understanding and oral
communication using songs, counting rhymes, dances and children’s books but most of all,
your children will have a lot of fun!


The presence of a parent or carer is required during the class as their presence can help
introducing French communication in the parent-child relationship.
