Description of children's classes

We offer immersion classes for complete beginners (from 1.5 to 17 years old); and specialized classes for French speaking children. We develop hands-on curricula to guaranty a personalized learning. Every child is different and need all our attention. We make sure that our young students feel comfortable from the beginning. Only in a playful and fun environment, they will be able to learn. On the other hand, our young students will learn a lot of authentic French. In our classes your child will not just learn words through flash cards and a translation method; or just sing songs whose meaning he/she may not even understand... He/she will progress in a natural and action-based language environment.

To make sure we offer young people the best possible French education, our group classes are in small groups. At the French Academy we choose quality over quantity.

Les Poussins (2-5,5 years) - French and English speakers

Let's play and sing in French! Children will be immersed in the language though playful activities, songs, dance.

Little ones will learn more new words and more complex structures, using them in fun, age-appropriate activities like arts, games, stories. Craft, drawings and pre-school writing activities will develop the fine motor abilities of the children. We will introduce writing activities to get started with French Alphabet, simple words, sound recognition. Older children will be more challenged with extra words' sheets.

In complete immersion, this class is also perfect for French speaking children.

The plus:
- We recreate an authentic language environment (no flash cards methodology!)
- Teachers are native speakers (no accent!)
- Child focused approach

Parent Participation and Responsibility

One parent or caregiver must stay next to the classroom or not far in the building. If your child feels very unconfortable (especially during the first class) you can participate in the class activities.

Code of Conduct
If a child becomes disruptive, the teacher will ask you to take him/her out of the class until he/she calms down in order to preserve a constructive learning environment.
