With 274 million speakers, French is a widely spoken language in the world. A total of 84 states and governments are represented in the “International Organisation of La Francophonie, and among them Qatar”. French is also a language of considerable cultural dimensions and a gateway to the arts and sciences. In fact, French helps shape disciplines ranging from international relations, literature, and philosophy to cooking, fashion, theatre, dance and architecture. French is also a language of international business, higher education, travel and tourism. And it is the 4th language on Internet. 

French is often the second learned world language, after English. Learning French gives a definite advantage to your children’s future personal and professional development. French acquisition is an opportunity for children to use during travel abroad and may even pursue learning it beyond their initial exposure to French.

The best way to achieve fluency is an early start and we can help you achieve that goal. We can help you communicate in French while learning about the unique aspects of the French culture.

Our French language classes for young learners are highly interactive and level appropriate. They learn to understand and express themselves in French while being immersed in an exciting journey into the French speaking world. They learn and practice the language through a wide range of activities including songs, games, crafts, music, drama and art. Our curriculum follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and it is structured around the needs of each age group according to their cognitive development and their personal interests.
