Minis

Language

Our "Minis"  French classes are tailored for 3.5 to 5 years old

At Alliance Française Vancouver, we are specialized in French lessons for young children. Our French classes focus on early language initiation to enhance learning acquisition skills. This early start helps children progress steadily in other subjects at school and prepares them to excel in French programs or other school subjects. 

Our classes are available mornings at 11am, afterschool at 3:45pm or 4:45pm, and also on Saturdays at 11am. Each class is 45 minutes long.


Age requirement : children must be 3.5 years old to 5 years old with no prior reading or writing skills.  If your 5-year-old child has some reading or writing abilities, please visit the 5-7 page.

We use the method Les Petits Loustics, éditions Hachette, a workbook 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. 

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