Kids will gain the confidence to speak French and to later use their skills to start reading and writing in French.

French for teens

The Alliance Française offers French classes for students ages 11-14 Les Grands and 15-17 Les Ados who are complete beginners or already at an advanced beginner/intermediate level.

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.
