Saturdays 9:00- 9:55am
From April 7th to June 16th (no class May 26th-28th).
- Children will be immersed in the language though playful activities, songs, dances, stories, games, and more. Parents or caregivers can contribute by encouraging the children. Arts and crafts will develop the fine motor abilities of the children. Interaction with puppets will make learning French really fun!
- The class is in full immersion and therefore suited for French or English-speaking children. At a young age, children are very intuitive and beginners will learn fast. French-speaking children will talk and interact more, while English speakers will need more time to pronounce the words, but they understand very fast.
Babies and toddlers will build new vocabulary through puppets, images, songs and situations in the same way they are building these skills with their language spoken at home.
