Classes for French speaking children

The lessons take place on Saturday mornings from 10 AM to 12 PM at our Maida Vale center in London (W9) and from 9.30 to 11.30 at our Belsize Park center in London (NW3). The children in these classes follow the French curriculum in French.

There are about ten lessons per term. The pupils are spread in groups of eight children maximum. The teachers are qualified and experienced, and are trained to the method we are using.

We have classes of all primary levels between 'Moyenne Section Maternelle' (4 years old or nursery level) and 'CM2' (Year 6/7). Once we have taught our younger pupils to read French properly, we move on to teaching them grammar, spelling, and conjugation. Once the children have completed the Primary school levels, we prepare them to sit the DELF exams, starting with the DELF B1. DELF are a set of official French proficiency tests administered by the Centre International d'études pédagogiques. Having the DELF B2 qualification means pupils can go to a French university without taking a French A-level or taking an entrance exam in French language. French certifications will also look good on their CV.

Ma Petite Ecole’s aim is one of a school. However, we make the studying as enjoyable as possible for our pupils. To help the children practice what they are learning we use educational games whenever possible.

 

French as a Foreign Language 

We have classes of French as a Foreign Language on Saturdays from 9.30 AM to 11.30 AM at our Belsize Park center, for children aged 5 or older. In class, students work on acquiring and developing French listening and speaking skills as well as French writing and reading skills with the aim to prepare them to take the DELF exams.

 

Classes for Children who have some French speaking background

Some children go regularly on holiday to France, attended a French School when they were very young, or have French relatives who occasionally talk to them in French. Therefore they are not complete beginners; they have a potential to learn French quite fast in a group of children with similar background. We have classes for them at Belsize Park and Maida Vale.
