play and learnThis is an in-person class!

This class will let children discover French language through games, movement, songs, engaging all of the senses: sight, taste, smell, touch, hearing. This multi-sensory class uses total immersion method to build the language skills through fun activities. We use the method with original songs integrated to the curriculum. Each class exposes children to familiar situations, so they are able to easily reuse their newly acquired skills at home. There is no required textbook for this class.

Class structure: The class evolves around two main elements: the ritual-based repetition and predictability (songs, mascots) and the surprise that comes with new elements in each class (new phrase structures, vocabulary, games).


Class objectives:
- Understand the meaning of activities without needing English explanations.
- Build vocabulary for everyday situations.
- Learn and use useful expressions and phrase structures in context.
- Participate in activities in French, use acquired skills in everyday situations.

Due to precautions in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the class space is very limited. Register now to guarantee your spot.
5% discount is available for second sibling (code SIBLING2) and 10% for third sibling (code SIBLING3).
