How do we learn?
In our classes, we teach an array of language through our specially developed teaching technique and our unique and dynamic curriculum. It’s been tried and tested on around 10,000 children over a period of over 2 decades, in fact our continually evolving curriculum is always bringing new, fun ways of teaching the language. In our classes we only speak French and use total immersion teaching. Some of the key elements of our curriculum and the success of our teaching is we adhere to our motto of #MakingLanguagesFun, along with parent/family and child participation. We teach, not only vocabulary, but also language structures that can be used in daily life through song, games, stories and so much more! You really have to come along and see for yourself first hand and experience it for yourself.
Who is the class suitable for?
This class is suitable for families from birth to around 9 years. You may have no French language ability, or be fluent. It is also suitable for native speakers as we teach language structures, vocabulary, songs, traditional tales that a child would learn in its mother tongue. Our job is to teach you how to integrate the language that you learn in class in your home environment. The only thing we ask is, that you want to learn whilst having a #MakingLanguagesFun experiences, have a desire to learn and join in with your child and we will teach you how to integrate an additional language into your home environment.
How soon should I start my child’s language learning journey?
This is one of the most common questions we are asked. The answer is, as soon as possible. A baby is born with the innate and intrinsic ability to acquire several languages from BIRTH. Not just one or two languages, but several. It’s a bit like asking, shall I speak to my baby in my mother tongue eg English, or should I wait until they are 3. You’ll be amazed and you only need to check out our videos on our social medial feeds and you will see some very young children who can count to 20 at 2 years old, often better in French than in English! There are so many benefits of learning an additional language, not just for your child, but also for yourself. We liken it to a workout for the brain and which also enhances cognitive development.
Do you provide a sibling discount?
The cost of the class is for one family per household, what a bargain, a full family learning experience for a small weekly cost.
