Language for Little Learners


How much French knowledge do I need?

June 24, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

I know a lot of parents are a little worried about teaching their kids French that is not perfect and they decide not to teach French for that reason. I disagree. I don’t think you have to speak perfect French in order to teach your kids French. In fact, I don’t think you have to know any. I think you can learn side-by-side with your child. As you learn the colors in French, you can teach your kids the colors.

You can also get yourself and your kids a French tutor. Most colleges probably have some students from France or another French speaking country. You can look on craigslist or contact the international club of the local college and try to find a tutor. You can even hire a tutor for both of you. 1 hour with you and 1 hour with your children?

Every area is different, but the going rate around here for a French tutor is $20 a hour. This may or may not be the right option for you, but it is worth thinking about. Also, make sure you get references and that your French tutor has some teaching experience. A good recommendation goes a long way!
