Classes Description:

French for Native Speakers (from Kindergarten & 1st 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 oral 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.

French as Second Language (from Kindergarten to 2nd grade)      
K to 2nd grade – beginnersThis class is an introduction to verbal communication in French and is adapted to the comprehension skills of young learners. The goal is to bring the children to express simple phrases in French  in basic social situations through various learning age-appropriate 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 progressPlease help us with this by encouraging your child to follow these rules.
