FRENCH

With 274 million speakers, French is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. No less than 84 states and governments are represented in the International Organisation of La Francophonie, and among them Qatar! French is also a language of considerable cultural dimensions. It is a gateway to the arts and sciences. In fact, French has helped shape disciplines ranging from international relations, literature, and philosophy to cooking, fashion, theatre, dance and architecture. French is also a language of international business, higher education, travel and tourism. And it is the 4th language on Internet.

French is also the second most widely learned foreign language after English in the world, so learning the language might become essential for your children’s future personal and professional development. Speak French like the French. Learn the secrets of the French gastronomy and culture. That’s what every learner aspires to. The best way to achieve it is to start early, in childhood. If you “missed the boat” in your childhood, this spring, we are giving your children the opportunity.

Our French language classes for children are full of fun. Children learn to understand and express themselves in French, taking an exciting journey into the French language and culture. They learn and practice the language through well-structured lessons and diverse activities involving songs, games, crafts, music, drama and art. All activities, vocabulary and grammar structures are age-specific. Our curriculum follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and it is developed for each age group according to the specificity of the cognitive development for that age.
