French Mother Tongue Support - For native French-speaking children attending a local, ESF or international school
These specially designed courses are aimed at native French-speaking children who can understand and/or speak some of the language, with at least one native French-speaking parent, and who follow the local, ESF or international school system (other than French).
We offer different levels to meet the needs of each child. Lessons follow the French syllabus.
According to his/her age and level, your child will:
- increase his/her listening comprehension and oral communication skills, including proper pronunciation;
- enhance his/her reading, writing and spelling skills;
- acquire a strong foundation in conjugation and grammar;
- develop an interest in French culture.
The main emphasis is on helping your child become truly bilingual and maintaining contact with his/her cultural heritage.
Note: these courses are in line with IB philosophy regarding mother tongue support for children schooled in a language other that their mother tongue.
