Bonjour! Learning a foreign language is not easy. It requires a huge commitment and a lot of patience. We are hoping that learning to speak French as a family will be more effective than an individual attempt. This year we will try to give the children an integrated French curriculum, with initial emphasis on oral communication through the memorization of poems, dialogues and songs. Basic grammar and the reading of simple stories will help to develop comprehension. We will study French 5 days a week using a combination of language software and conversational study to achieve the best possible level of proficiency.
