Bonjour Babies is a fun and stimulating French language learning program for little ones aged from 6 months to 10 years.
Our programs give children the opportunity to be exposed to a second language in their early formative years, whilst simultaneously enabling caregivers to learn along with them. So it’s French for fun for you and your little one!
Older children learn independently from their parents in a fun, musical and interactive learning environment. Give your child the best possible start in life by exposing them to a second language as early as possible and reap the cognitive rewards.
Suitable for beginners and native speakers alike.
‘Bonjour Babies’ – 6 months-2 years (40 mins)
The ‘Babies’ group introduces the French language through simple songs and actions, with new key words being introduced each week. Many songs are interactive, encouraging the caregiver to engage their child in simple actions to reinforce the key words and to create a fun shared learning experience!
‘Bonjour Toddlers’ – 2-3 years (45 mins)
The ‘Toddlers’ program closely follows the structure of the ‘babies’ classes, using songs as the main method of teaching. Additionally, the children are exposed to more complex sentences and delivered verbal instructions to follow. Basic themes are introduced, such as morning routines, emotions, weather, eating and drinking language, and colours. Simple games using the parachute, as well as interactive songs are used to encourage the children to start verbalising the language in a fun and effective way.
‘Bonjour Bigkids’ – 3-6 years (45 mins)
The ‘Bigkids’ program involves themed classes incorporating songs, games, stories, puppet plays, interactive play (including parachute games), and craft activities. Children revise the previous week’s themes at the beginning of each class and have regular routine of songs to instil a sense of mastery in the children. Collaborative learning tasks, such as making themed murals, are designed to elicit cooperative learning and shared enthusiasm for group outcomes. These interactive classes enable children to begin speaking the basics as well as improve their oral comprehension.
‘Bonjour French Club’ – 5-10 years (1-2 hours)
The French Club classes provide an opportunity for children to learn independently from their parents. They cover basic French language conversational skills, routine discussions (introductions, eating, drinking, daily routines), the weather, feelings, days of the week and numbers. Each term follows a theme, which is incorporated in the chosen activities, songs and learning aids.
