  • Hello,
    We would be interested in a dual program in Wiliamsburg.
    Our daughter Stella is starting Kindergarden in september at PS 84. She is bilingual. How to make it happen?
  • I would love to start a French Dual Language Program (or take the one I have into the schools) for younger bilingual kids and youth.
    The immersion is done through theatre texts and film scrips... even video games...
    So that it becomes accessible and immediately usable for a younger audience.
    Please feel free to contact me with ideas and requests.
  • Possible opening of French Dual Language Program in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Check out the French in Willyburg Group.
  • Create a french program, et découvrez le plaisir, d'entendre vos anciens élèves se retrouvant de nouveau dans votre classe mais en France cette fois, partager naturellement le langage de la cour d'école et de leurs mots à la mode... Que du bonheur!
    C'est ce que j'ai connu à la suite du French immersion program expérimental du MAE, dont j'avais la charge en 2001, jusque 2003 .... En 2007, de retour en France , j'ai reçu 2 de mes anciens élèves (Sam et Erica, que j'avais eus en immersion complète KF puis 1st grade aux USA), dans mon CM2 français, pour un mois.
    A l'époque, le film "Brice de Nice" venait de faire évoluer le langage de nos élèves français... il n'a pas fallu 2 jours pour que nos invités américains, réinvestissent avec facilité le "Casséééé!" à chaque but marqué à la récré par la "Soccer Queen" face à ceux qui doutaient que les Américains puissent jouer au vrai foot! A quand les programmes d'échanges à la suite des programmes d'immersion? ( Allez Fab, tu vas trouver une solution ....)
