Play and sing
Play and sing in french in Paris !
The Happy French “games and songs” workshop ( we have adapted our french lessons into workshops) allows your kids to have fun and learn French thanks to cultural, enjoyable and educational activities.
It boosts the cultural and linguistic knowledge of French!
It’s a place for children to expand their vocabulary, learn to recognise the different sounds of the French language, and also to discover French customs and traditions.
The workshops are gradual and follow the child’s progress, on a personal level as well as a linguistic one. The workshops consisting of small groups let each kid to be focused on, with regards to specific needs and demands.
Reminder of the linguistic notions learned during the workshop
At the end of each workshop, we go over the new vocabulary that was introduced during the session to facilitate its assimilation.
The new vocabulary and the new songs are written down by the teachers and sent by e-mail after the workshops.
This time is also devoted to exchanges with the children, who are free to express themselves, ask questions or make their feelings known.
Our “games and songs” workshops
Games in small groups
During the small group workshops, the kids can choose their activities according to what they want to do, or the themes they’d like to discover.
These games are an opportunity to converse in French, to learn to express an opinion and defend a point of view, all under a teacher’s supervision.
Games in a large group
During the large group workshop, the children get to exchange their knowledge and use the new terms they’ve learned.
This large group also allows for more fun in the games, as well as physical activities like miming, treasure hunts or life-size games!
These activities increase spontaneity and the use of French, as well as group cohesion.
The catalogue of French children’s songs is quite large and varied. It can adapt to all ages and tastes.
Singing in French helps improve pronunciation thanks to the repetition of words, and it also allows kids to get used to French syntax and feel the rhythm of how French is spoken.
It’s an excellent tool to improve their vocabulary and discover French children’s cultural references.
