How we are different

Our approach aims to create a friendly environment, where children can learn and play without realising they are being immersed in the French language.

We feel it is important for children to feel comfortable in a French-speaking environment, in order to respond naturally to our team of native French teachers happily, and to play, sing, draw and paint just as they would at home.

In order to keep parents up to date and encourage closer collaboration, we will occasionally send emails with progress notes and topics covered in the class.

 

Structure and content of the workshops

Behind the relaxed and playful atmosphere, there is a carefully designed structure to the workshops. Topics are presented step-by-step and new vocabulary is introduced while recurring themes and games reinforce the learning process.

The attraction of these classes is very much reflected through the commitment and enthusiasm of our team of teachers.

All of our teachers are French native speakers, trained to interact in French, encouraging and helping children to understand and express themselves in this new language.
