When learning a language practice is very important, and it can be done in a really fun way! Because you don’t want your children to forget all that they’ve learned! With a little bit of fun practice they will be ready, and even have a headstart, when their French lessons resume with us or at their school.
In the 2nd Blog this summer, we share more resources and recommendations for children of all ages.
And if you haven’t been onto our Portal yet, go and check it out! It is packed with activities, worksheets and videos for all ages, from babies to GCSE level (for Club Petit Pierrot Members only).
First something for families to have fun together:
VIDEO featuring one of the songs from our CD: “On se balance”. Stella really enjoyed writing and singing this little song and love the musical arrangements that were made for it. It is a fun one to do between siblings, or for parents and babies/toddlers together with lots of practical vocabulary to learn.
