Ecole du Samedi

ECOLE DU SAMEDI is an immersion program designed to assist parents who wish to provide their children with a formal education in French. The program targets all students who can already communicate in French.

The classes meet on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. During these three hours, the students will work on developing their skills in reading comprehension, writing and speaking. In addition, they will be introduced to major aspects of the French culture.
