Learn and practice the French language in a fun and engaging way with us. We do vocabulary building, games and engaging activities in a safe, structured learning environment. We keep kids engaged intellectually but also physically. Kids retain the newly acquired vocabulary longer this way and they have fun in the process.
"I really liked Bouchra from the first moment we met. And importantly, so did my 4yr old daughter. Bouchra is helping her to continue her French skills, since we have just moved here after living in Geneva. Bouchra is really good at starting the lesson in a very kid-friendly way, and I can hear my daughter opening up to speaking French with Bouchra in a way that she finds difficult to do with me. My daughter looks forward to her time with Bouchra, I think she really enjoys the time with her, as well as practicing her French. Thank you Bouchra!"
The French Classes now run on Fridays at 5.30pm in Old Amersham. These classes are aimed at children between the ages of 3 and 12 years of age. Both bilingual and non-bilingual children are welcome to join us. We accompany children in their journey to learn French by building on their vocabulary base and improve their French speaking skills. We organise different fun activities and exercises based on their level. We also use various tools such as visual aids for non-French speakers for example and sub-titles to ensure that the children feel comfortable in the French-language immersion context. Students can feel learning vocabulary is repetitive and therefore are less engaged. We have a wide range of games and activities that we use during our sessions to keep learning fun and the kids engaged.
The children are encouraged to speak as much as much as possible during the lessons in order to exchange ideas and develop their vocabulary range. This in turn increases their confidence in their oral expression abilities as well as their listening skills. They learn French effortlessly. Throughout the year we explore cultural themes through structured play and exercises which are all age appropriate. The number of children per class is limited in order to allow each of them to express themselves in French. Cost is £15 per session.
In France preschool is called maternelle. It comprises 3 sections Petite section, Moyenne section, and Grande section. The main aim of nursery schooling is to start to develop oral expression and communication through music, songs and games otherwise call 'ludique' activities in french.
This is called école primaire. There are two groups: KS1 & KS2. We review all of the basics from phonics to ensure pupils can read french to basic maths to ensure they are confident with number but also the introduction of tenses to ensure children can express themselves using the past, present and futur tenses.
This is collège. We review a wide range of topics (such as technology, global and social issues, school, etc.), tenses (8 in total) as well as grammar. We work on speaking, writing, listening and comprehension (reading) to prepare the student to take their GCSE exams. The earlier they start the greater the progress.
Classes are held on Church Street in Old Amersham at 2pm.
