Through this fun and interactive course, students new to French will love learning Canada's second national language!

About this course

This course is designed for learners who are new to French and who learn best by having fun. It will give students the opportunity to build a foundational understanding of the language by practising their listening, speaking and writing French skills through reading and engaging tasks.

As students learn best by doing, a variety of interactive games and activities will be used. We will learn using songs, games, role-playing and most importantly, fun! Every class will begin with a review of the previous class, as the best way to learn a new language is to practice and reinforce.  

Learning a new language can be intimidating, this class aims to make language learning fun and put students at ease in order to create a safe and welcoming learning environment. J’espère de vous voir en classe! (I hope to see you in class!)
