French Lessons for Children
Whether you and your family are visiting Paris for a short stay, or your children are enrolled in a French school in Paris, French à la Carte offers French lessons for children and adolescents at your home in Paris. Our lessons suitable for different age groups ranging from 4 to 16.
Our French lessons for children and adolescents can be undertaken in addition to French tuition at school. For example, if your children encounter specific difficulties, or wish to progress faster.
Our lessons can also be an introduction to French if you and your children are in Paris only for a short time.
Content, Format, and Method
Flexible: a weekly lesson (90 or 120 mins, or more if you wish).
An intensive program is also available (up to 12 hours per week).
A flexible and personalized schedule that takes into account weekends and school holidays.
Your children will learn French from a private tutor specialized in teaching French to children. The tutor will be a native French speaker.
Individual lessons based on communication, using stimulating and creative activities dedicated to the specific needs of children and individual learning styles.
Whether your children haven’t had prior exposure to French, or if they are currently enrolled in a French school in Paris, the tutor will adjust the teaching method to their level.
Children 4 to 7 Years Old
At this age, children do not usually have fully developed reading and writing skills just yet. Your private French tutor will utilize stimulating and engaging learning activities such as games, songs, videos games, and board games.
A communicative and creative approach will help give your children confidence in speaking.
Children 8 to 12 Years Old
At this stage, children are now able to utilize a range of different skills, including reading and writing in French. The lessons can be undertaken in addition to French lessons at school.
Our courses can be focused specifically on written skills, oral skills, or both, depending on the needs of your child. Generally speaking, children in this age group tend to broaden their vocabulary and use French more spontaneously.
Adolescents 12 to 16 Years Old
Your children might need help with coursework or revising for exams. For this age group, the tutor will be using semi-adult learning methods.
Learn French While Having Fun in Paris
Paris, at any season, offers an endless list of activities suitable for children. If your children dream of climbing to the top floor of the Eiffel Tower, seeing wild animals at a zoo in the heart of Paris, admiring Christmas decorations around Paris, or a thousand other fun activities, our lessons are designed with their needs in mind.
From 8 years of age, your children can combine French lessons at their home with discovering of Paris. In French, of course!
Feedback from Students
Nancy Quartey, American expat in Paris and mother of Neilah – September 2015:
My daughter started taking lessons with Nindra through French à la Carte last year when she was 5 years old. My daughter loved her from the first day they met and adores their lessons. Nindra is serious but fun and also very patient with my daughter. I immediately noticed a difference in my daughter’s French as she would practice what she learned during her lesson throughout the week, looking forward to their next lesson. Nindra is a pleasure to invite into our home every week and I would highly recommend her.
