French for Native Speakers (from Kindergarten to 5th grade)
Petits Francophones Kindergarten & 1st grade – This class is open to bilingual students. In this class, all activities are conducted in French. It aims to develop a rich verbal language, organized and understandable by 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.
Moyens Francophones 2nd & 3rd grade – This class is open to truly fluent in French students 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 & 5th grade – This class is open to students who are truly fluent in French, and focuses on verbal and written expression, grammar and spelling. In this class, all activities are conducted in French. The children read longer texts and consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling, conjugation and vocabulary. Emphasis is placed on written expression: namely write short varied texts (dialogue, fiction, description, portrait). Children are encouraged to read independently.
French as Second Language (from Kindergarten to 2nd grade)
K to 2nd grade – beginners – This class is an introduction to verbal communication and is adapted to the comprehension skills of young learners. The goal is to bring the children to express simple phrases in basic social situations through various activities: stories, creative projects, songs and games.
The EFNY program follows a French-only policy in all Francophone classes, and students from these classes will have weekly assignments for efficient progress. Please help us with this by encouraging your child to follow these rules.
