FRENCH FOR KIDS

We come to your nursery or pre school with a workshop for toddlers to learn French in their own surroundings. French for Kids will induce young toddlers to the French language and culture.  It can be regular classes or one offs. 

Based on games, movement and music, your kids will learn French in a fun way!

 “Fanny has been providing weekly french classes for my nursery for some time now and we think she is fantastic. Fanny has masses of energy and a natural gift of teaching the children in a fun and enthusiastic way! “

A language workshop designed for schools. Learn new words, get fluid and confident! It is available in French, German and Spanish. The native professional actors can adapt to your students needs. From Key Stage 1. 

Through games and drama, a fantastic way to make a foreign language accessible!

We can also adapt L’ Atelier to books and plays for secondary and A level students. Projects presented below are adaptable to the school or teacher’s demands. It allows students to go deeper into the author’s work with the use of improvisation, acting and glimpses of directions. A minimum of 5 sessions are required if you would like to put on a performance.

L’Etranger by Albert Camus – Candide by Voltaire – Les Mains Sales by Jean-Paul Sartre – Boule de Suif by Maupassant – Tartuffe by Molière – Le Château de Ma Mère by Marcel Pagnol.

“An enjoyable experience for the students. They had a lot of fun and it was great to see them performing in French. This workshop has enabled them to see languages as something fun, enriching, maybe challenging but not insurmountable.”
Sarah Decroucq, St Peters School, Bournemouth
