Learn more about the pedagogy used at Alliance Française

For teenagers, Alliance Française of Westchester is organising French immersion lessons throughout the school year. Our pedagogy is based on providing a fully immersive learning environment adapted to teens and their developmental needs, so lessons focus on teaching all 4 skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Teenagers will be given opportunities to learn through videos and interactive activities organized online, including through various authentic resources such as newspapers and magazines.

Although grammar and conjugation won't be the primary focus of lessons during instruction time, teachers will make sure teenagers acquire all the necessary basics to be able to speak French accurately, and interactive exercises as well as explanations of grammar and conjugation rules will be provided for students to practice and improve their French throughout the Summer. While an emphasis will be on listening and speaking skills during lessons, reading and writing skills will be an important component too, so intermediate and advanced level students, as well as Francophone students, will be expected to be able to write in French with a higher degree of accuracy.

If your child has never attended classes at AFW, you need to contact us before signing up for a class, so we can assess their level. They must also take our placement test so we can assess their knowledge when it comes to grammar and conjugation. An informal interview will be arranged before the first day of class in order for our team to assess your child's level, as well as to gain a better understanding of learning goals which are most important to you.

Audrey et Max suivent des cours à l’Alliance Française du Westchester depuis maintenant 4 ans, ils ont fait d’énormes progrès. Je recommande vivement cette organisation pour les parents qui souhaitent que leurs enfants soient bilingues. Les cours se font en petits groupes et les professeurs sont tous très qualifiés.
I believe the online platform works really well, and I am excited to see that online courses will be offered in the summer.

In terms of the spring online semester, my daughter Anna has been extremely engaged, the lessons have been impactful, and she has truly been enjoying the interaction.

Thank you for all that you do with the class!
