All students are introduced to French language starting in kindergarten. Our primary goals are for children to learn, from an early age, to appreciate and understand different cultures, and to see the world from many different perspectives. In Lower School, French is taught through a variety of methodologies such as the communicative approach called AIM with the use of an innovative gestural technique.
In Middle School, students choose either to study French or Spanish. Teachers design and select its course content around the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing. Students gain an understanding of historical, socio-cultural, and political issues and sensitivity to a wide array of cultural differences, whether in food, music, religion, sets of ideas for any country where the target language is spoken.
