La Petite Ecole Francaise (or, The Little French School!)

La Petite Ecole Francaise (or, The Little French School!)

Over the last fifteen years, our classes have proved extremely popular and have developed a loyal following in many schools. Whilst it is now a Government requirement for primary schools to provide foreign language teaching on the curriculum, our classes have remained popular.

We believe that this is due to a variety of factors:

small class sizes and a focus upon the needs of each individual child;
a fun and active style of teaching;
classes led in French by teachers for whom French is their ââ'€š¬Ã…"mother tongueââ'€š¬Ã‚ (or equivalent); and
structured learning which gives a clear sense of progression to each child.

Our classes are also seen to be complementary to the curriculum on offer (in schools that provide French); are a valuable method of extending the skills of more able pupils; and are a way of French-speaking families staying in touch with their mother tongue.

All these factors combine to help us to achieve our aim: to give each student the confidence to become fully self-expressed in a foreign language.

The benefits of learning a foreign language at an early age are numerous. We support the view that the brain is like a muscle, capable of growth and that learning a foreign language can exercise certain crucial areas and increase the overall scope and performance of the student.
