Studies show there are countless benefits to learning a language, including better cognitive abilities, increased attention span and improved memory. Since 1985, the Hong Kong Institute of Languages (HKIL) has been teaching languages to children, teens and adults – enriching the lives of thousands of students.
NEW French Foundation Programme
HKIL has developed a new French Language Foundation course specifically designed for children aged 4 – 12 years. In the new culturally enriching French Foundation programme, children will learn basic French while discovering the fundamental aspects that make up the French culture, such as French festivals, cuisine, iconic places, famous artists and more. Each lesson is centred around a defined learning outcome, while still maintaining a fun and engaging experience with structured activities that bring the French language to life.
There are currently two French courses, one suitable for 4 to 6 year olds and the other suitable for 7 to 12 year olds, with age-appropriate curriculum and activities. The course is structured into four modules of four lessons each, 1.5 hours per lesson and lessons can be once or twice a week. Students can complete either a two-module programme (two month’s duration) or the full four-module programme (four month’s duration).
The course is perfect for extra-curricular activity over the school term. At the end of the first course, students will be able to progress to Beginner 2 Level.
Completing this programme can assist children with applications to primary schools where the French language is taught as one of the language options.
