French Lessons for Kids

French Lessons are Fun!  Children learn French through activities, songs, stories, cooking and games.   Dice games can be used, for example, to learn numbers or conjugate verbs.  Activities are geared to be personally meaningful; for example, children design their own French coat of arms to express who they are.   In this way French then becomes the instrument through which they learn to participate in these activities.  Parents are encouraged to have their children “teach” them the French that they are learning in order to use it actively at home.
