Home Learning Through The Arts

French

Pre-school and Grade school (3-12 yrs)

Children learn the marvels of the French and Spanish language and culture through action, dance, music and drama. Our puppet shows are all told in French and Spanish. With the book and tape featuring fun characters like Carlos Conejo (Froufrou le lapin), children soon pickup the rudiments of these beautiful languages.

Toddlers (2 1/2-4 yrs)

Research has shown that this is the perfect age to expose a child to a second language. Dancing, music, gross motor activities, puppetry and singing helps your child incorporate simple vocabulary and the sound system of the French and Spanish language while having fun and learning coordination and movement skills.

French Family Fun

Taught by native speakers, these two classes provide the entire family– parents or grandparents and children — a language and cultural immersion experience together. Exciting activities like music, dance, art, cooking and puppet shows involve the entire family in the learning process. Adults not only learn with the children but also acquire a wealth of ideas on how to continue the learning at home and speak together in the target language. Appropriate for both beginner and intermediate learners.
