Level 4 for 7 – 10 Year Olds
Horacio the Hot Air Balloonist loves to use his imagination and is getting better at French each week. During lessons, he watches Toy Story 3 and Ratatouille, answering more tricky questions in his quest to help the characters on their adventures. He is learning how to use possessive pronouns and his parents are impressed that he’s speaking the language at home.
About the Lessons
Based on Skoldo Book 2, children learn specific grammar to have day-to-day conversations. They learn how to discuss the weather forecast, their favourite food and hobbies, and what they do during the day. They also learn how to ask for directions, tell the time, and discuss fun places to visit.
During a well-known story, grammar and vocabulary from Skoldo Book 2 is introduced into questions and answers. After each short video, the children answer questions to help the characters in their adventures. For example, the teacher will ask ‘Ton père donne la pomme?’ and the group answers the question ‘Non, mon père prend la pomme’. They are then asked ‘Pourquoi?’ and the group answers ‘Parce que mon père a faim’.
Ratatouille, Toy story 3, Bolt, Monsters University, Big Hero 6, Shrek 3, Brave, Despicable Me 2, Inside Out, The Incredibles, Kuzco, Up.
Class Size & Duration
Up to 6 children per class, or smaller private groups can be organised. Sign up for a term (typically 10-12 weeks) and choose to have 1 or 2 classes per week. Each class lasts 50 minutes.
WHAT PARENTS SAY
“Michael and Arnaud have a unique approach to learning French, and their lessons are instructive, engaging, and, most importantly for this age, FUN!
Barron and Snowdon are both much more confident and more fluent in French and this has also been noticed by their French teachers at school.
Michael and Arnaud have developed a brilliant method of teaching French to young children, and I would HIGHLY recommend their classes to anyone looking to improve their children’s French abilities.
Barron and Snowdon look forward to their lessons which is a dream for a parent.”
