Resources for Learning French Online:
You do not need to be a fluent french speaker to support your child in French Immersion! Most parents do not know French, and through the program, pick up a basic understanding of letters, letter sounds, and some numbers. This can be helpful to learn along with your child. (Audio clips are available on this website!) However, children often love to correct their parents and show them how they are learning something new and exciting.
