My classes:

I’m Amber, and I teach musical and fun French Classes for young children, live on Zoom, pre-recorded, and now, post-lockdown, face-to-face.  I’ve had some amazing feedback from my online and face-to-face classes in the past and I can’t wait for our new sets of classes starting this April and May.

Here is what is happening this Spring and Summer (more detail below):

  • Ages 18 months to 6+ years: Pre-recorded French classes. Topic: ‘Sun, Sea and Sand’.
  • Ages 6-8+ Zoom classes on Thursdays at 4 – 4.30 p.m. Topic: ‘Sun, Sea and Sand.’
  • Ages 7/8-10 Zoom classes on Thursdays – details to be announced very soon.
  • Bébé et moi (Baby & Me French) on Wednesday mornings at 9.30 .m. face-to-face outside class in Atherstone where you can learn how to introduce French to your baby through simple songs and play.

Zoom classes

This Spring, I have a 5-week Zoom class aimed at children aged 6-8+ years. This class includes a mixture of songs, games and activities to teach children French vocabulary themed around the topic ‘Sun, Sea and Sand’. And you don’t have to worry if you miss a week – your booking includes access to my pre-recorded lessons and language resources. Some children in my Zoom classes move on to being able to understand and respond in sentences as well as single words. The hallmark of all my classes is to make learning fun, and I’ve had great feedback from children attending my Zoom classes so far. Classes take place on Thursdays at 4 p.m. and start on 22nd April. I then have a series of classes running through the whole academic year, which you can also access. You can book right now – here.

Pre-recorded classes

All of my classes for younger children (aged 18 months to 6 years) are pre-recorded this Spring. These online classes are released weekly on Fridays via a private Facebook group and are available to watch at your leisure. In the pre-recorded classes, I carefully select a range of songs and activities for younger children, with a suggested upper age limit of 6 years. The pre-recorded classes include some sort of sensory play every week, and lots of creative activities using easy-to-get-hold-of resources at home. You can also choose to have access to weekly song sheets and French vocabulary to help you learn from home. I often find the adults are learning as much as the children. This Spring/Summer our topic is ‘Sun, Sea and Sand!’

Pre-recorded classes come in two options – video-only at £12 per 5 videos, or video-plus-resources at £18 per 5 videos plus learning resources (including an invitation to a parent Zoom chat one in each five-week course).  Click here to book a pre-recorded class.

Face-to-Face classes

Prior to Covid, all of my classes were face-to-face and I am now starting to reintroduce them, starting with a special class for parents and babies, which will take place OUTSIDE, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Bébé et moi (Baby and Me French) begins on Wednesday 5th May, and you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to bond with your baby while learning some simple French songs and play activities together.

Class content and prices:

I teach 6 different topics over a two year period, meaning that there is something new to learn each term.  This Spring, our topic is On y va ! (Let’s go) and comes in two 5-week blocks, starting on Thursday 14th January and Thursday 4th March.  Each course is 5 weeks long and costs £30 per family, including learning resources and a parent Zoom chat.  You can access one or both courses. Pre-recorded class prices come in two options – £12 for the videos only.  £18 for the videos plus teaching resources – key words, song lyrics, etc, plus a parent Zoom chat.
