French for Kids is owned and operated by Alain Augustin, a native of the French Caribbean.  He devised his own teaching method after searching for a published method to teach his son French and coming up empty-handed. Starting from the basics of the French alphabet, the method then progresses to vocabulary, reading, comprehension, and grammar, using a combination of provided and recommended materials from Francophone countries across Europe and the Americas which highlight the richness of the language. Conscious of the fact that children cannot learn a language just by watching videos, singing songs, and memorizing simple sentences, this method focuses on the the building blocks of French necessary to have a working knowledge of the language and to eventually further the student's study of the language independently. Also important to the method are the enthusiasm and motivation of the student and their parents.  Alain's method is ideal for school-aged students who know how to or are learning to read.

Hello It may seem a little strange me posting on this forum as we live in France but our past experiences from using this particular forum for our region in France have been good so I am hoping that this may also be true of this forum :) Our 17 year old son is now into his final year of study at Lycée in France and hopes to pass his Bac ( final examination required for University) with a view to going back to England next year to do a degree. German forms a large part of his final examination and he has said he feels that this is his weakest area and would like to try to improve his competency in the German language.We have lived in France since he was 10 years old so he has gone through the french education system and has passed his college exam and is now focused on getting through his final year. We wondered if their was a family with a bilingual english/german speaking child probably around a similar age that would be interested in doing an exchange holiday for for the purpose of improving their language skills. Our son is bilingual english/french speaking ( no english accent at all...)so we thought it may be of equal benefit to a student that has chosen french as a second or third language option ? and would like to gain some extra french language experience. The english speaking element would be beneficial when further explanation may be needed by either student on the whys or wherefores etc... of the language. If their is another family with a like minded son (or daughter) please contact us and we can take it from there. thank you

I know, the topic is not appropriate because there is no Thanksgiving celebration in Germany. However, I am interested to celebrate Thanksgiving maybe with friends or just buy myself a nice turkey for meal. Any suggestions where to dine on Thanksgiving? Thanks.
