Very impressed by the quality of the program, everything was interesting and fun to learn.
Overall a very helpful and enjoyable way to practice French. I had a great time and it encourages me to continue to learn French.
I really liked the way the teacher taught us real life vocabulary. It was a good program, and the pace was right for my level.
My child is intrigued by my course and it has “spring boarded” many discussions. Now we do “our homework” together.

My children continue happily in French immersion.

There are lots of activities you can do with your children.This is a great program for French immersion parents and is fundamental in helping my children continue happily in French immersion.
Not only do I understand a little more of the challenges my child is faced with on a daily basis, I am now able to read along with her and have a better understanding.
