CHILDREN AND TEENS FRENCH IMMERSION CLASSES
Learning a new language at an early age leads to an effortless pathway to creating a bilingual or trilingual child. Our French language
classes for Kids & Teens are taught in an age-appropriate setting and non threatening environment, where students learn in fun ways.
With only 5 to 8 students per class our instructors provide students conversational and contextual learning through stories, games,
songs, and age appropriate activities.
