We learn French in a small class (max. 10 children), in a fun and friendly way using songs, puppets, stories, games and accompanied by our mascot, Greg La Grenouille (Greg the Frog!).
Each class is planned according to age, abilities and follows standards set by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
At the beginning of each class, I always explain briefly in English what we are going to do and tell you about our topic. Then, ONLY French is spoken in class because being fully immersed in the language will allow children (and parents, carers, etc) to learn quickly and to gain confidence in using French.
Each session lasts 45 minutes.
Do not panic if you don’t speak French or if you don’t feel confident speaking French as I use lots of visuals, gestures, body language, expressions, modelling, and movement to complement spoken words. This will allow you to develop comprehension without direct explanation. The point is to listen, copy and learn how to use the language correctly.
