Make your child’s introduction to French an unforgettable experience!

FIAF’s Minimes (EMN) program sends your child on a journey in French, with Felix, Lila and their friends: Madame Bouba, Tilou, Pic Pic, and Pirouette.

Our dynamic teaching approach promotes attention and reflection among young language learners through group and individual activities that keep children active and engaged during the class. Children sing songs, participate in educational games and interact in French from day one! Music, photos and fun readings help children reinforce vocabulary and language structures previously studied.

Our curriculum consists of twelve consecutive tiers from beginner to intermediate levels: EMN 101, 102, 103, 104, EMN 201, 202, 203, 204, EMN 301, 302, 303, 304. Each level can be covered over one 11-week session (fall, winter, spring).

Complete beginners can enroll directly in EMN 101 and will then continue to the next levels.

Children who are new to FIAF and had previous exposure to the French language will be placed in the right level by one of our experienced French teachers after taking a free, quick and easy placement test.

French for Native French Speakers also available.
