Parent of Zara (10 years old) and Lilah (9 years old) "My daughters have been taking French with Nathalie for a year now. They were resistant to starting a language class, but Nathalie made them feel comfortable from the start. Her teaching style is interactive and fun. She incorporates games and songs into the curriculum and even teaches them about French culture. I’ve been so impressed by how much they have learned in such a short amount of time! For anybody wanting to introduce their child to a foreign language, I highly recommend the children’s lessons at Alliance française!"


My son enjoys the class. Thursday which the class is scheduled has become the “French Day” for him. The books and teaching materials are very child-friendly and absorbing. Online lessons featured some funny animations which make the learning experience entertaining and productive at the same time. Most importantly, the teacher is very patient and professional. She has managed to make my super-energetic and easily-distracted son engaged and interested. 

Starting to learn a new language at an early age has a lot of advantages. It is well known that kids are more receptive to new information and that at early ages they tend to create and relate language structures more easily. For them, there’s no second language. They use the knowledge they gather to nurture and enrich both of them.

It is also proven that a second language can enhance kids' creativity. A new language provides a new set of skills for them since it changes their perception of things and enhances their memory capacity.

A new language also expands their cultural knowledge. And with it, it teaches acceptance and understanding. Learning a new language introduces kids to a new culture and helps them accept and understand cultural differences.

According to the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, around 280 million people around the world speak French, this makes it the fifth most spoken language in the world. It is projected that by the year 2050, French could be the most spoken language in the world with 750 million speakers. Getting your kids started into French and French culture can be an investment for their future.
