Al­liance Française

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

Com­monly known as the lan­guage of love, French is spo­ken by over 80 mil­lion speak­ers world­wide in 29 coun­tries. His­tor­i­cally, French is an in­ter­na­tional lan­guage of lit­er­a­ture and sci­en­tific stan­dards and is one of the main lan­guages spo­ken in in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing the United Na­tions, the Euro­pean Union and the In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee.

Al­liance Française, the of­fi­cial French lan­guage and cul­ture cen­tre in Malaysia, was es­tab­lished in 1961 and of­fers age-spe­cific lan­guage classes for kids. Be­gin with Im­mer­sion Classes for preschool­ers aged three to six, Chil­dren Classes for kids aged seven to nine, and Teenager Classes for older kids from ten to 14 years old. Each weekly one­and-a-half hour class teaches the fun­da­men­tals of the lan­guage through fun ac­tiv­i­ties, games and singing. Teach­ers are na­tive speak­ers and kids will also learn how to con­verse as no English is spo­ken in class, en­cour­ag­ing kids to speak and build up their con­fi­dence.
