Languages for Kids is a unique, bespoke French class for under 6s, the aim of the classes is to teach basic French. With songs, small games, images and music, we make French accessible specifically to this age group. After a few classes, the children are able to count, name few colours and even ask you how you are in French!
It was created by Fanny Dulin, French bilingual actress experienced in performing for and with children, and herself mother of an English child. It is based on drama games to make the classes interactive and playful. The workshop leaders are native French and professionally trained actors. They are DRB checked. It lasts 30 minutes and can be booked regularly or for a one off event.
“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!”
Stacey Wittingham, The Square School, London
We always sing “bonjour” and “aurevoir” at the beginning and the end of the class. We also warm up by singing a song about different part of our bodies and doing so at the same time. There is a French song taught for ten classes.
New Words and Counting
We learn a new word or a concept every two weeks. To make it more accessible, we use pictures, scarves and our friend Magali the pink frog. It is the same for learning numbers.
Music and Dancing
Every two weeks, we discover a new animal together through pictures. We also do a little dance on a French song related to this animal.
The class is aimed at groups up to 12 children and last thirty minutes
We strongly recommend to book a block of session so the children can learn more. Also keep in mind that at this age, they need to get used to the leader. So it is better to maybe have a familiar face around!
We are also very happy to come to your school and just do a “one off” session. In that case, we can take up to 25 kids and need the teacher to stay with us and participate. The content of the workshop is then a little different to what is described above but has the same touch.
