At this developmental stage, kids possess their greatest ability to absorb and retain a second language qualitatively similar to their native language. Phonological acquisition is time-sensitive, contrary to grammar and vocabulary learning. Hence, and the emphasis here is on speaking using the Listen. Absorb. Speak.™ method.
We use the Listen. Absorb. Speak.™ method. At this level, students will increase their French knowledge through more independent activities, such as reading, storytelling, art, and culture lessons. Travel Bugs are given task-oriented and multi-sensory activities that allow them to use their French in a specific context. The Travel Bugs syllabus has been specially designed to pique the interest of each student and encourage them to be active learners. Phonetic and grammar rules may occasionally be introduced, based on the questions raised by the students.
The Aux Petits Soins Ensemble Program is a combination of French language immersion classes and social activities designed for adults who want to 1.) learn French for the first time, 2.) improve their existing French grammar, phonetic and conversation skills, or 3.) polish their overall mastery of the French language and dig deeper into French culture.
