Spring classes will start live on Zoom the week of Monday, April 6.
To ensure the best possible remote learning experience, class formats have been adapted as follows: Class will start with a live 30-minute interactive session on Zoom. This will be followed by 55 minutes worth of work to be completed individually by the students while the teacher remains available to answer questions. The group will reconvene on Zoom for the last 15 minutes of class. Live lessons will include songs, vocabulary games, question & answers, and other guided activities inspired by a topic of the day. Kids will receive homework assignment that they must complete before the next class.
We will move to in-person lessons at FIAF as soon as we are able to reopen.

FIAF’s Benjamins classes for ages 5-6 introduce kids to French language through hands-on, age appropriate activities including stories, creative projects, songs and educational games.
Our curriculum based on colorful and imaginative storybooks is taught in French by experienced native French-speaking teachers. Our multi-sensory approach promotes a gentle immersion experience in small classes that allow your child to seamlessly become familiar with French.
