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 Ã¢Ã¢'¬Ã "mother tongueÃ¢Ã¢'¬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.
