Learn French

CHILDREN CLASSES

At the Alliance Française Wellington, it is never too early to start learning French! Children are given the opportunity to be immersed in French through a variety of fun courses and activities from as early as the age of 2.

 

Contact us at admin@french.co.nz for further informations.

Please note that ages are indicative only. Children are placed in groups according to their level in French.

Research shows that children between the ages of 1–10, who learn a second language in addition to their native tongue, have a higher success rate in future academia. Children in this age range have more ability and succedd in learning a second language, rather than those who start later in life.

 

At the Alliance Française Wellington, we believe that the ability to speak a second (or even a third) language is one of the keys to success in our global world. Opening your children’s life to a second language will not only broaden understanding and acceptance of other cultures but also improve comprehension in English.

 

French is one of the most popular and widely spoken European languages in the world, and the renowned Alliance Française Wellington is the best place to immerse your child in an enjoyable, rich and varied French cultural and language program.

TODDLERS

2 to 4 years old (please note that the child has to be at least 2 years old at the time of enrolment). For bilingual and non-bilingual children and parents.

Monday   | 9:30am - 10:15am

Saturday | 9:30am - 10:15am 

 

The French for Toddlers class aims to introduce basic French vocabulary early during a child’s growth. The classes cover vocabulary for animals, colours, numbers (0 to 10) and fruit and vegetables. These themes are taught through songs, games, and dances which are always 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.

As your child grows, we offer a class called French for Petits Filous where they will learn new words. During these classes we play Bingo, Twister, sing and dance, which are all fun and stimulating ways to practise vocabulary. We teach the French words for body parts, the weather, clothes and family members. Each class concludes with a story to help children link words together to form small and easy sentences.

LOUSTICS
 

5 to 6 years old

Saturday | 10:30am - 11:30am

During the French for Loustics class children learn vocabulary for colours, animals, food, family, and start creating basic sentences. By the end of the class, your child will have learned how to describe their family (eg. “J’ai un frère; j’ai trois sœurs”) and will be able to tell you about animals and food.

 

The teacher will stimulate the curiosity of your child by skilfully mixing songs, stories and games, with the goal of learning French words and sentences in an enjoyable manner.
