Old Town French

French classes in Old Town Alexandria for children

French for children ages 1 to 11 years-old

Your child will enjoy learning French by engaging in fun, hands-on activities! Each session will be conducted almost entirely in French using the immersion method and a multi-sensory approach. We will have fun singing songs, learning finger plays, using puppets, dancing, reading stories, and creating amazing art. Each session focuses on salutations, basic commands and sentences, colors, numbers, parts of the body and different aspects of our natural world. No French experience is necessary, everyone is welcome! Parents are invited to learn with their child in class!

Along with learning colors, animals, seasons, counting, parts of the body and salutations, we will focus on a special theme throughout the session.  This spring's theme includes:  Sciences: Les oiseaux  et les expériments scientifiques.  Science: Birds and science experiments.
Previous themes include "C'est le printemps!" It's springtime!; "Au marché" At the market; "Ça bouge!" It moves!, "Les animaux de la ferme" Farm Animals, "Les cinq sens" The Five Senses and "Bon voyage" Let's visit different Francophone countries!
