Learning a second language is a beautiful journey, and there’s been countless studies supporting that the optimal time to begin this voyage is as children! We are so excited to offer the Les Petites Pommes French Immersion Prep Program to our younger students so that they can have the opportunity to feel so nurtured, engaged and supported right from the start!
Our classes are small and organized to use multiple senses to engage in language acquisition. Our environment will peak the child’s curiosity and allow them to use and develop their skills of observation, exploration, manipulation, thinking, reflection and imagination. Through structured activities, games, nursery rhymes and discussions, we will be introducing our students to the wonderful world of French!
We have a variety of topics we touch upon, varying depending on the age & experience of your child, including:
- Un arc-en-ciel de couleurs! (A rainbow of colours)
- Nos amis, les animaux (Our animal friends)
- Les nombres (Numbers)
- Nos 5 sens (Our 5 senses & adjectives)
- La famille et l’amitié (Family and Friendships)
- Notre environment (our environment)
- Nos sentiments (Our feelings)
- Nos corps (our bodies)
- La nourriture (food)
- Le monde merveilleux de la météo (The wonderful world of weather)
Classes will take place on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings for two hours at our location in Westdale. You may register for either one or both days a week. Students can begin anytime throughout the year and no French experience is necessary! Parents can also cancel their students registration with one month’s notice.
