Description of children's classes

We offer immersion classes for complete beginners (from 1.5 to 17 years old); and specialized classes for French-speaking children. We develop hands-on curricula to guarantee personalized learning. Every child is different and has personal learning needs. We make sure that our young students feel comfortable from the beginning. Only in a playful and fun environment, they will be able to learn. On the other hand, our young students will learn a lot of authentic French. In our classes your child will not just learn words through flash cards and a translation method; or just sing songs whose meaning he/she may not even understand... He/she will progress in a natural and action-based language environment.

To make sure we offer kids the best possible French education, our group classes are in small groups. At the French Academy we choose quality over quantity.
