Effortless french for kids

Researchers believe there may be a 'critical period' lasting roughly from infancy until puberty during which language acquisition is effortless. Children acquire language through interaction with others and can benefit from playtime in French, learning French like they learn their first language.

Games offer a fun-filled, relaxed environment where your child can practise using new words in new situations, and are free to express themselves. Participating in recreational activities in French is an effective way to develop language and communication skills. It also helps your children to be more socially confident and may be a way to forge friendships.
