What to expect the first FEW weeks....
Students can expect:
to engage in a collaborative, engaging atmosphere
to hear French language during class most of the time
to meet many new friends
to learn many new words and phrases in French within a short amount of time and be excited to share their new learning at home
During the first few weeks, your child may come home very tired. This is normal, as for a large portion of the day, their brains are processing information - they are "on" for most of the day. Teachers do their best to help students acclimate to the language, however it is nonetheless very tiring for the brain to be processing all day. Allow them lots of down time during the first few weeks.
