French – English Program

(Basic French)

Early Start French

In Early Start French, students are exposed to French and its language patterns at an early age, discovering and exploring simple language structures required for purposeful communication. Their comprehension increases when linguistic structures, along with an array of visuals, are used and reused in a spontaneous and natural way within the context of a theme. Students are formally assessed on their oral communication skills (listening and speaking) only.
