New French course for parents and very young children (3-5 years old)
Why take this course
Our first goal is to help families with very young children transition into a French-speaking environment. This means getting ready for school, doctor’s appointments, socializing, birthdays, sports and other clubs, as well as life in the community. As we know…at that age, parents are always present and fully implicated in their child’s life. Learning French together is an essential and fun way of preparing him or her to French-speaking school and other activities. Our deepest wish also is that you as a parent fully benefit from these early years and build meaningful and valuable relationships throughout the community.
What will you know when you finish this course
First time learners will acquire a working vocabulary to feel comfortable in a range of practical situations including: at school, at the doctor’s (dentist, pharmacy…), shopping, interacting with neighbors, in the park, safety concerns, etc. Activities based on storytelling, role play and conversation will give parents the confidence and skills to use French, while children will be familiar with a range of contexts. Online activities reinforce vocabulary (over 800 words and expressions for beginners) , speaking and listening skills.
The fee depends on the number of participants. For a 90-minute course with 10 families, the price is set at 600 CHF/year (30 lessons of 90 minutes), or 200 CHF per term.
