Start your child in a new language or boost their scholastic performance in French with FIAF’s Juniors!

Our multidisciplinary approach promotes interactions in French through role playing everyday tasks to awaken teens’ interest and imaginations. FIAF’s Juniors focus on developing oral communication, including both listening comprehension and speaking skills. Your child will additionally build a solid foundation in reading and writing in French at a beginner and intermediate level and learn strategies to become a more independent foreign language learner. The Juniors curriculum integrates preparation for the DELF JUNIOR exams.

Our curriculum consists of eight consecutive tiers from beginner to intermediate levels: 101, 102, 103, 104, 201, 202, 203, 204. Each level can be covered over one 11-week session (fall, winter, spring), or one 2-week intensive session (summer).

Beginner: 101–104
Upon completion of levels 101 to 104, teens will know how to greet someone, introduce themselves and others, describe a person, and express emotions. They will be able to talk proficiently about jobs, housing, and meals. Students will also learn how to have a conversation over the phone in French and make vacation plans. In grammar, frequently used verbs and irregular verbs will be covered. The imperative form, the present tense, the future tense, the “passé composé” and “imparfait” past tenses, will be introduced along with reflexive verbs and their usage.

Intermediate: 201–204
Upon completion of levels 201 to 204, teens will be able to talk about someone’s physical traits and character, describe their interests and environment. Vocabulary relating to tourism, hobbies, health, transportation, nature, and city life will be studied. The future, recent past, and continuous present tenses will be covered. The conditional tense and difference between “imparfait” and “passé composé” past tenses will be learned, and the “subjonctif” form will also be taught.

 

What class to choose?

Complete beginners (students who have never learnt French before) should enroll directly in EJR 101 and then continue to the next levels.

Children who are new to FIAF but have previous exposure to the French language will be placed in the right level by one of our experienced French teachers after taking a short placement test.
