Frequently Asked Questions

No; whilst French speakers are more than welcome (and encouraged!) to attend, the group is open to all levels, including complete novices. In fact, the premise of our groups targeted at younger children is for caregivers to learn along with their child, so you can delight in a new learning experience together. As such, no prior French language is required. We do, however, help parents along their journey of learning the language by displaying English translations on posters next to all of the French songs that we sing. We also have a supporting guide and playlist to help you on your plight between classes

Yes, in our experience, children who have started the group at a pre-verbal age, have readily joined in saying words in French and singing the songs once they became verbal. Even pre-verbal babies begin to demonstrate comprehension of instructions in French; for example, they will place the puppets away when instructed, or put their hands on their head when asked, without even being able to talk yet.

Older children demonstrate a particularly fast ability to understand directions and instructions in French, and soon become confident enough to mimic what the teacher says and experiment with things independently in French. Obviously, the more exposure the better, hence we have take-home resources to promote this; however, the classes on their own are sufficient to forge the pathways in the brain that enable and encourage foreign language readiness and retention.

No, this myth has now been dispelled by scientific research showing that children are incredibly capable of absorbing up to three different languages simultaneously without any confusion between languages. In fact, bodies of research continue to show that bilinguals actually develop greater vocabularies in their mother tongue, and demonstrate superior reading, writing, analytical and even social skills compared to their monolingual counterparts.

We have classes for kids from 6 months to 10 years.

We have crafted our programs around four age-specific groups, ensuring every child’s experience is tailored to their developmental stage.

  • Bonjour Babies – for babies 6 months to 2 years
  • Bonjour Toddlers – for toddlers 2 to 3 years​
  • Bonjour Big Kids – for kids aged 3 to 6 years
  • Bonjour French Club – For kids aged 5 to 10 years

Our Babies class is 40 minutes long, Toddlers and Big Kids classes are 45 minutes long and our French club is 1-2 hours.

We believe the best way to learn is through fun, laughter and interactive experiences. That’s why we provide a parent guide packed

with keywords for you to substitute the English word with the French equivalent, we encourage you to blend and mix words into 

your daily lives. Additionally, you’ll have access to our playlist so you can sing and dance together at home too!
