What you will do

Single session

This class is dedicated to children aged 6+ wishing to learn French as a foreign language. The main objective of the class is for children to understand and express themselves in French and the focus is on everyday conversational language.

She is using a manual based on Montessori approach to ensure fun and creativity are at the heart of the learning process.

Themes throughout the year (non-exhaustive list) Concepts : colours, numbers, shapes, alphabet, quantity … Animals : farm animals, sea life, jungle animals, pets, habitats, animals sounds, baby animals … Daily Life : home, means of transport, clothing, body, jobs … Nature : seasons, seaside, mountain life, sky, landscapes … Hobbies : instruments, sports, games, circus … Celebrations and customs : Christmas, Halloween, Mardi-Gras …

FLE 1 - BEGINNERS The main focus of this class is to get the children to discover French vocabulary by family of words. Situations relate to daily life: animals, body parts, numbers, colours, seasons, alphabet, months, days, instruments of music, house, means of transport …

FLE 2 - INTERMEDIATE The main focus of this class is to get the children to use words and typical phrases expressing who they are, what they like and how they feel and to develop their French vocabulary by family of words. Situations are linked to feelings (i.e. anger, joy, etc), censorial worlds and daily life: what they hear, what they taste, smell, see. The teaching approach encourages the children’s participation through songs, games, crafts, drawings and notions of basic written French.

FLE 3 - ADVANCED The main objective of this class is for children to understand and express themselves in French. Children are encouraged to talk about themselves, their tastes, their environment (family and school), their plans, fears and preferences. The focus is on everyday conversational language. The children learn to talk about where they come from, where they live – we also focus on how to ask basic questions – talk about the weather… Each child has his own notebook for lessons and homework as well as a smaller notebook (we call it “vocab book”) for vocabulary.

With Laurine, you will learn French at your own pace. She takes students of all levels and the class can be organised at home or at your school. Lessons can be provided one-to-one or for small groups of up to 3. She will set-up a programme adapted to your needs once you have decided to start. Her private tuition can be arranged for your children or for teenagers.

Private tutoring sessions completely focus on the learner’s individual needs and adapt to their unique learning style. Her approach and curriculum symbolise the joy, freedom of choice and celebration that should be in every early learning experience. Every session will start by a reminder of 15 min, every 10 min we will change the activities (fun worksheets, language games, songs, creative and social play). Step by step, you will see how your child will progress very quickly.

Laurine has been the private French teacher to my son, now 9, for a year. My son has some additional needs and is flexi-schooled. He requires kindness, patience, humour and challenging work in order to apply himself. Laurine has provided all four throughout and I hope she will be able to teach my son French through GCSEs and higher exams. Without a doubt, she has given him the confidence to approach Spanish and Latin studies and belief that he has an ability with languages. Our family is not French-speaking and it is not possible every week to practise the new aspects of French taught by Laurine in the last lesson. Laurine is always understanding though and never makes my son feel bad if she needs to repeat something. Each week, Laurine arrives with a bagful of beautifully made, colourful exercises and games and is always happy to leave films or books for extra work. She is an exceptional teacher and I feel so lucky that Language Melody sent her to us. I am sure any child who is taught by Laurine will feel happy and learn well.
