A few more words about this course

This course will help your child learn French at their own pace with various themed vocabulary, many colourful pages of resources to support their learning and fun interactive activities that will let them practice what they have learned in the videos.  It will also give you all the tools you need to support your child in their learning and make French an exciting and stimulating part of your family life!

Paired optionally with this access, you can also register your child for a weekly 30-minute group call with the teacher where they will be reviewing what they’ve learned that week with live, tailored teacher feedback. Register for the calls through your dashboard once you’ve purchased access (a link with the instructions will be mailed to you when you sign up).
