Our French classes are tailored for 5 to 7 years old

At Alliance Française Vancouver, we are specialized in French lessons for kids . Early learning of languages is a key factor in improving learning acquisition skills to progress steadily in other subjects at school. We prepare children to keep up or go beyond their French programs at school, to acquire the knowledge for entering the best programs.  

Our classes are available afterschool at 4pm or on Saturdays. Each class is 1.5 hour long with a small break time after 45 minutes.

We use the method Les Loustics, éditions Hachette, a textbook with a playful approach, fostering communication skills development. It is designed to catch children's attention and show great results, concentrating on oral expression with active speaking and listening, without forgetting written and reading skills thanks to a workbook with stickers, designed for kids! 

At the end of each session, teachers assess students and parents receive a certificate of achievement.

Karaoke songs, video-illustrations, poetry, and writing practice activities are available online: https://lesloustics.hachettefle.fr/
