Unlock a world of culture, art and opportunity for your kid with our French lessons for children. The fifth most widely spoken language on the planet, French is spoken on all five continents across the globe. It is the language of the arts, fashion and gastronomy, and opens doors in the higher education and international job markets.
We offer three French for kids programs, based around the age of participants, and tailored to their developmental stages with age-appropriate lessons, activities and materials.
A boost for the brain
Research has found that children who learn a second language may be more creative, better at problem-solving, faster learners, and find it easier to connect with different cultures.
Children also find it much easier than adults to learn a second (or third) language because the language center of their brain is still in development.
