Tips for Parents

How to help your child build/use their French  language skills?

1. Screen time negotiation - watch tv in French, movies in French set the device setting to French for iPads and other devices

2. No google translate - have your child use a dictionary and bescherelle

3. Vacation in a French speaking area and have your child be the family translator

4. Have family French nights - play games, learn expressions etc in French with your child as the leader

5. Read together - read a novel that is available in French and English and discuss it together
6. Attend functions in French organized by l'ACFA (Association Canadienne Francaise de l'Alberta) here in town
7. Subscribe to a French magazine such as Okapi, Geo Ado, Curium etc
8. Graphic novels or comic books in French are great for reluctant readers
9. Apps and games - many have French versions available
10. Music - many French-language popular singers are waiting to be discovered by your child in different genres of music
