French is taught from the age of three to take advantage of the rapid language acquisition that occurs in young children. Montessori students are introduced to French by singing, dancing, and learning basic vocabulary through gestures. In the primary grades, students learn the core fundamentals of the language. Using dramatization, performing arts, and vocabulary acquisition, students develop an enthusiasm for French and second-language learning. Students in our junior program learn the fundamentals of reading and writing. They build upon their basic vocabulary to become more confident and competent with oral communication. In the intermediate years of grades seven and eight, students work towards advanced language structures and oral communication in a purely French environment.
Owing to our small class sizes, enrichment and modified programs can be arranged.
