Bilingual children living in an English environment often have a good understanding of the French language but need encouragement in order to speak fluently and to learn to read and write. Our aim is to help these children develop their oral, reading and writing skills. Our classes follow the French curriculum for primary school children and employ methods developed specially for bilingual children, whose linguistic needs are different to those learning French as a foreign language.
We offer several classes for children from bilingual families. We keep all of our classes small in size to maintain the high quality of our lessons.
