During the classes, your children will meet new friends (hand puppets) and will have a lot of fun. The teachers use authentic materials: children books, songs, TV programs, videos, plus a lot of interactive games and activities that make learning grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation very fun!

Advantages of the French Academy DC:
- Native teachers: children learn the right pronunciation from the start. You don't want them to start speaking with a foreign accent and have difficulties to get rid of it later on.
- Experienced teachers with Master's degree
- Proven methods: action and communication based immersion, re-creating a natural language environment
- Small sized classes
- French Culture!

Did you know that learning a foreign language has a positive impact on the general learning abilities of children? French is also one of the most needed languages in the world. Register your child for a class at the French Academy today!

Hey, yes this is cool –
let's teach kids to be snobbish and rude, and use perfume instead of bathing every day. Girls, no need to shave your underarms – be like French girl! Hate all kidding aside, I've spent time in various areas of Europe, and "being more French" is not something I would ever advise or encourage a young person. Just about any other European area has a lot of wonderful culture to offer, but France, and particularly Paris – not so much.
