French for Native Speakers (from Kindergarten to 5th grade)

Petits Francophones Kindergarten–   This class is open to bilingual students in Kindergarten. In this class, all activities are conducted in French. It aims to develop a rich oral language, organized and understandable by the others. The child speaks and is understood through the language. He learns to be attentive to messages addressed to him, to understand and respond appropriately. The child starts the basic acquisition of the alphabet, the sounds and will be introduced to reading and writing in French.

Jeunes Francophones 1st graders  – This class is open to bilingual students in 1st grade who are already reading in English and will be reading and writing in French. In this class, all activities are conducted in French. The child starts the basic acquisition in reading, writing as well as grammar skills. The student will be taught to better differentiate English to French and to understand the basic grammar rules.

Moyens Francophones 2nd and 3rd graders – This class is open to truly fluent in French students in 2nd and 3rd grades who are reading and writing in French. In this class, all activities are conducted in French. The child is faced with varied and somewhat complex texts, while learning basic rules of grammar, spelling and conjugation and begins to write short texts.

Grands Francophones 4th and 5th graders  –  This class is open to students who are truly fluent in French, and focuses on oral and written expression, grammar and spelling. In this class, all activities are conducted in French. The child reads longer texts and consolidates its bases in grammar, spelling, conjugation and vocabulary. Emphasis is placed on written expression: namely write short varied texts (dialogs, fiction, description, portrait). Children are encouraged to read independently.  



Préparation aux examens de français avancé (from 9th to 11th graders)

for native French speakers/advanced French learners.
The participants will be required to pass a written evaluation (short essay).
This class prepares High School students for the DELF B2 exam and the AP French Language and Culture exam. Weekly assignments will be necessary for efficient progress.

    • DELF exams offer an official certification awarded by the French Ministry of Education. Passing level B2 (upper intermediate level) gives access to several French universities.
    • AP exams are American exams taken during High School that demonstrate mastery of rigorous college-level material. Students who pass the AP exam earn credits in most colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.This class will be theme-based. Students will develop French skills in understanding, speaking, reading and writing, while deepening their knowledge on Francophone cultures. Students will also reinforce vocabulary and grammar in varied, creative and engaging contexts, using different resources (videos, audios, literary and documentary texts, websites…).

Please note that AP exams are taken in high schools in May. Check with your high school if you can register for the exam “AP French Language and Culture”.  DELF exams can be taken in FIAF (French Institute – Alliance française) end of May-beginning of June.

 

Écriture créative (from 3rd to 5th graders) – This class is suitable for native French speakers and advanced French as foreign language learners. In this workshop, participants will explore the creative process and practice their writing skills through an array of playful activities and collective projects, as they engage with a wide variety of sound and visual media.

Middle School – French for Native Speakers (from 6th to 8th graders) – In this class, the students will continue improving their French language skills learned in their previous years. We encourage all students with bilingual education to join EFNY. According to our experience, bilingual students will be able to keep and also improve their French language level by continuing EFNY classes.

Culture générale (from Kindergarten to 8th graders) –  These classes will focus on Geography and History. Students need to be fluent in French. Language skills will be studied during this class. In this class French language academics will be introduced in a new creative way. Students will explore every aspect of French culture and heritage: history, arts (painting, literature, photography, cinema, architecture…), gastronomy, traditions. They will discover major figures from different periods.

 

The EFNY program follows a French-only policy in all Francophone classes. Please help us with this by encouraging your child to follow this rule.
