Playful initiation to English
Kaleidoscope Ecole Bilingue opens its doors every Wednesday and school holidays to give your children the chance to become familiar with English, without needing to knowing it, and having fun. The program is aimed at children from 7 to 10 years old. The English courses were created on the belief (confirmed by official studies) that bilingualism offers our children many intellectual assets, and undeniable advantages for their adult life. Through our English courses on Wednesdays and school holidays, we have succeeded in creating a bilingual, open-minded and dynamic environment that contributes to the intellectual development of our students.
From the CP year, we have several options on way to welcome your children. On Wednesdays, you can leave your children after school, from 12:30 pm, and we will provide a good balanced meal followed by an afternoon of classes. You can also bring them at 1:30 pm for the classes only. We designed a specific program designed to learn English in a fun way, but also to accompany them in the acquisition of reading and writing, an essential point of the program from CP onwards. Thus, the emphasis is on the language development at the level of writing, comprehension of the text, grammar, spelling … The acquisition of language is treated as a whole and in a structured way, in order to to enable children to appropriate this essential aspect of learning English. The program is designed to adapt to the rhythm of the children as best as possible and emphasizes play, autonomy and confidence. The classes encourage oral language and communication / interaction with other children while having fun. We use songs, music, games and stories to encourage children to express themselves and take part in activities. With this playful and participatory approach, your child will learn very quickly to recognize words, phrases and numbers. Each period (around 6 weeks), new topics are tackled in order to stimulate the interest of the children and to encourage as much as possible the understanding and the spoken word in English.
