So you’ve decided to teach your kids French – now what?

So, you’ve decided to teach your kids French, but what is next? Depending on your own level of French and what French resources are around your area, there are many directions you can go…

1. Buy some basic French flashcards – You can find them at Barnes and Noble or on Amazon. If you go to Barnes and Noble and you can’t find any, ask an employee, because the French books for kids were hidden in a very obscure place at my local Barnes and Noble.

2. Berlitz summer language camps or other language camps – I live in a fairly small city and the Berlitz here has summer language camps for kids as young as 4 years old. However, I think they are a little pricey.

3. French immersion preschool – believe it or not, there are actually quite a few around the United States and they cost the same as a regular preschool (at least the one they have here).

4. Borrow some French language books for teaching children at the library – This way you can try a few out and if you truly love on you can buy it or just keep renewing it at the library.

5. Online resources – There are tons of places on the internet that have activities geared towards teaching French to children. I will make a post tomorrow and highlight some of my favorite sites.

These are just a few ideas to get you started. You don’t have to start big, the most important thing is that you start! Good luck!
