French is steadily reappearing in primary and secondary schools, although the offerings and quality are still modest compared to languages like English. More and more children are studying French in addition to English at school. Our courses perfectly complement a normal school week. With only an hour and a half of class, our French classes are helpful, while avoiding turning into a burdensome extracurricular activity.
Is having my children learn French a good investment in their future?
With the projected economic and population growth of French speakers, as mentioned above, French will undoubtedly give your children a leg up when they reach the job market. Companies around the world, across industries, will invest billions in African countries, where a major economic boom is underway. Your child can be prepared when all those companies look for professionals who speak French.
And what should a French course for children guarantee parents?
Basically the same as a quality English course. The teacher must be a French speaker, of course, and communicate with the children from the beginning in accurate and natural French. What else? The teachers must have extensive experience in early childhood education, and the academy needs to provide quality materials for children to learn in a natural and fun way, avoiding overwhelming them.
Are you unsure that we are all we’re cracked up to be?
If you still have any questions about who your children’s teachers will be, we invite you to get to know them a little better.
What do your children do in a French class?
Easy! They’ll play, sing, draw and do lots of other activities in their class, similar to what they do in other educational environments. The difference is that here, all this will be done in French. These classes, with a fluent French instructor, will be set up so as to motivate children to want to learn and participate in French while having a good time.
Who are the French teachers for children?

What our students say
My daughter is very happy with her French classes. I feel that she’s reinforcing what she’s learned at school as well as picking up new things, which are very practical. Also, as she is learning through games and having a good time, she finds the classes really fun. So it is an easy way for her to learn French, she learns without even realising! The truth is she is really happy and loves going to her classes.
I have loved the course, not only for the way of giving classes, but for their patience and good humor when it comes to teaching. I will continue next year without a doubt. Merci CLICK!
