What child doesn’t like to experiment and discover new things? In Science Lab we ignite your child’s curiosity and offer the opportunity to do experiments, all in French! Connect your future scientist to any computer, tablet or mobile device and science is at their fingertips; even conducting experiments using ordinary household items. But that’s not all. After class, children will continue to learn by working on independent projects and preparing for next week’s lab. Beginners are welcome.

Details about the class:

Students will interact with scientific topics in a French immersive environment. Over the course of 10 weeks, students will encounter themes ranging from the incredible characteristics of light and sound to the marvels of the natural world and outer space. They will study the following themes: light and color, sound, astronomy, chemistry, and the environment. The class targets the following objectives:

  • Practice speaking French.

  • Learning new French vocabulary: learn about and discuss prominent figures, theories, and events relating to the week’s science theme through short stories, videos, and games in class.

  • Participate in simple at-home experiments during class using minimal equipment and/or household items (one in-class experiment every other week).

  • Collaborate with classmates and dive deeper into topics of their choice and interest during the class.

10/19/2020 to 11/16/2020
Instructor: Nirvana Fairbanks

In Travel Club, your child needs only an internet-connected device with Zoom and a suitcase filled with imagination, curiosity and the willingness to speak French! They’ll visit one city per week in the French speaking world just like they would with their family. They'll explore the city, discover landmarks, and check out local food. This class is perfect for diverse cultural exposure through fun activities.

Details about the class:

Students will travel virtually each week to a city in France or another French-speaking country! They will be introduced to countries and cultures through videos, images, games, songs and stories. They will learn some general information and explore various aspects of cities, such as famous landmarks, natural areas, and restaurants with popular food from the area. Students will learn or revisit more advanced vocabulary useful for travelling, such as airport or train station vocabulary, and travel activities. We will also discuss some customs and aspects of various cultures. There will be a simple activity to prepare at home for each class. For example, a short paragraph and drawing describing something that they enjoyed learning about, or a short paragraph and drawing describing a family trip they took, or an imaginary trip they would take if they could.

 The class targets the following objectives:

  • Practice communication skills.

  • Explore different French-speaking countries and their culture.

  • Acquire travel-related vocabulary.

  • Learn customs from different cultures.

Instructor: Joëlle Ceran

childrens workshopStory time takes on a twist as your child becomes the story teller. Each week, the children ages 5 through 9 will listen to a story and, in their own words, retell it. Easier said than done when learning a foreign language.
 
Each workshop begins with a simple story read by the teacher Joëlle Ceran, en direct de France (Live from France). Using their existing French vocabulary, the children are invited to retell the story with the support of the book’s illustrations. Through repetition and rephrasing, the children will begin to discover different ways in which to assimilate and reuse the language they are learning or already know. The objective of these workshops is to guide each student from producing isolated words toward simple and more complex sentences through the use of stories. By doing so, the child will gain the mastery of their own linguistical style and learn to retell stories in full autonomy.
 
These 45-minute drop-in workshops are ideal for children with some exposure to French vocabulary such as colors, shapes and numbers. Enroll your child in any one workshop for $14 each or save on the entire bundle of four workshops for $52.
