Fun online French classes for children aged 0 to 5 years
Would you like your child to learn French in a fun and effortless way?
French Frogglers focuses on teaching French with a Montessori inspired method to children aged 0 to 5 years, in an enjoyable and entertaining way.
We will not be able to resume our physical classes this term, but you can book a 10-week online course for the Summer Term and attend the weekly classes with your little ones from the comfort of your home.
Classes are interactive with flashcards, songs, stories, games, puppets and show and tell, all live via Zoom so children can see one another and feel connected to the teacher as well as their friends while learning French the fun way!
Toddlerhood is the perfect age to start learning a new language. Young children do it naturally and effortlessly and, as they have powerful imaginations, they love learning in a fun and playful way.
Learning a new language is also incredibly beneficial for stimulating our children’s brains and improving their creativity, confidence, self-esteem and cognitive abilities. It also plays an important role in childhood development.
The sensitive period for language development described by Maria Montessori occurs between birth until six years of age, when all children have an absorbent mind. During this period, they are naturally interested in learning the names for everything in their environment, making it the ideal time to easily learn, understand and speak a second language, and expand their vocabulary.
The children at French Frogglers will intuitively learn French through songs, simple stories, games, and interacting with a variety of puppets (including star puppet Frogouille!).
They will learn vocabulary about a variety of topics. Each term will introduce a new topic, and learning colours and numbers will be implemented in each and every class.
Your children will always hear the right pronunciation of the vocabulary introduced in the lessons, and as they are excellent imitators, they will acquire a lovely near native French accent.
This class is taught by a very experienced Montessori trained French teacher and native French speaker, and is perfect for both beginners and bilingual children.
If you are a bilingual family and are keen for your child to have regular language lessons to maintain their knowledge of their family’s native tongue, this is the perfect class for you! Very young children have the incredible ability to absorb and learn several languages at once, without getting confused.
So whether your children are beginners or speak some French already, they can benefit greatly from a class using both English and French.
French Frogglers will develop your children’s taste for learning French, and is a perfect basis for future successful language learning! Learning languages should be fun and effortless – at French Frogglers we focus on both – with the emphasis on fun!
