Academic French programs for students interested in improving their French language skills.

 

Description

Registration is now open for 2019/2020! Spots available on a first come basis! Limited Spots for each class!

The Weekend French Coaching Classes for children are offered from September to June to complement the French studies of your child in school. We provide personal attention with a small ratio of 1 to 3 and aim to help them improve in 4 critical areas: Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening. Some of the great benefits of this program are:

  • Students are grouped by French skill level
  • Multimedia, a powerful learning tool, is used to keep students engaged
  • Provides a great French-esque social environment
  • Coaching sessions and French cultural activities are carried out weekly to motivate students to keep learning French

Register for 1 or 2 classes at a time for the whole school year!

  • Core French – Gr 4 to Gr 8 Regular English Stream or Extended French
    This program is meant to give students a stronger foundation in their French language skills. Part of the class involves learning/studying French songs in order to understand the French sentence structure as well as to improve basic vocabulary. Other activities, such as creative writing, sentence building, vocabulary enrichment, and spelling, will boost students’ confidence in their ability to understand texts and stories which will give them a great academic advantage.
  • Read-Along – Gr 1 to Gr 5 French Immersion or French School
    Children will partake in an intensive reading program with an emphasis on pronunciation and reading comprehension to help students become independent readers.  They will have the chance to improve their oral skills and expression through a wide variety of materials which include images, videos and presentations. Even though there might be a writing component to the program, this class primarily focuses on developing reading and speaking skills in order to develop confidence in oral speaking abilities.
  • Little Sing-Along – 3 to 4 yrs
    This program is meant to develop listening skills, vocabulary, and pronunciation of the French language. Children are encouraged to follow the mentors and sway rhythmically and repeat out loud to match the rhythm and lyrics of songs. The groups repeat the songs together, attempt to memorize the words and lyrics, and participate in craft activities linked to the theme of the day, in an effort to improve pronunciation. Research has shown a powerful link between sounds, and memory retention. Singing will use a combination of both, the entertainment value, and the sensory interactions, to enhance memorization by using repetition of words that are used to construct phrases and sentences.
  • Sing-Along – Beginners (Gr 1 French Immersion in Peel; Gr 2 French Immersion in Halton; SK to Grade 3 English Track)
    This program is meant to develop vocabulary, pronunciation, and build foundational knowledge. Since singing and music are very entertaining and interactive, we picked a great selection of educational songs to keep them engaged. Children are encouraged to sway and repeat out loud to match the rhythm and lyrics of songs. The groups repeat the songs together, attempt to memorize the words and lyrics, and participate in craft activities linked to the theme of the day, in an effort to improve pronunciation.
  • Learning Out Loud (LoL) – French schools or French Immersion Gr 2 to Gr 7; Extended French
    This program offers creative writing, reading comprehension, spelling, conjugation, and conversational time, which will not only help the students improve their French but also give them an edge at school. A French coaching session of approximately 10 minutes is used weekly to encourage students in their pursuit of French! Read, Write, Speak, Listen!
  • Homework Club – Gr 1 to Gr 8 all levels
    Need extra help with your school work or your project? If so, the Homework Club is your best friend. Students bring their French homework or assignments and our dedicated staff will provide help and support with their work. If your child has no homework or lessons, we will have oral and written activities ready for them.
