Our afterschool program offers a variety of French classes. To join the class that is suitable to your child, please contact: Xavier Bocquier, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Classes are organized by age and level and take place either during the week – Monday through Thursday from 4:00 pm. to 5:30 pm — or on Saturday mornings from 9:30 pm to 11:30 pm.
Our classes of French as a Second Language are organized according to three levels:
We welcome children starting in 2nd grade and will teach the language through action and fun activities. This includes conversation, listening, reading, grammar and writing.
We engage the children to talk about themselves and their interests. We favor highly interactive classrooms where children help each other and work together.
Each level allows for the students to progress in oral communication but also in the written part of the language. We promote and encourage the reading of different types of literature.
For all ages and all levels, we lead the children to the discovery of the French literature and to get acquainted with the wealth of the culture (Molière, Cyrano de Bergerac, the fables of La Fontaine, the lives and master pieces of famous painters Matisse, Cézanne and others.)
The students enjoy presenting to their parents the poems and plays they memorized during the year. And, each year we plan a special event to welcome their families in the classrooms.
Our program is supported by:
DELF Junior or Diploma of the Study of the French Language
The DELF Junior is a diploma that students with a solid knowledge of French can earn. It is a diploma given by the French Ministry of Education and Superior Teaching.
There are 4 DELF Junior levels corresponding to 4 levels of knowledge: A1, A2, B1 and B2.
This diploma is a great tool to motivate our students. It gives them a goal but also a reward. It is the recognition of all their efforts and the validation of their competencies.
For all levels, the exams are made of 4 parts: oral and written comprehension, writing essays and oral communication.
