The child starts the basic acquisition of the alphabet, the sounds and will be introduced to reading and writing in French.

French as Second Language (from Kindergarten to 5th grade)

The goal is to bring the children to express simple phrases in basic social situations through various activities: stories, creative projects, songs and games.
2nd to 5th grade– beginners-intermediate: this class is for beginner and intermediate foreign language learners. The goal of the class is to bring children who are new to French to express simple sentences in basic social situations, and students with basic verbal and comprehension skills to expand their knowledge through the study of a variety of themes and fun activities.
Culture générale (from Kindergarten to 5th grade) – 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 several aspects of Francophone 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, 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.
