About our courses for Toddlers

  • October 3, 2018

As early as 18 months, Children can be exposed to a foreign language as their natural abilities help them to master a language rapidly and easily while boosting the intellectual competencies. Babies classes follow rituals that are important for children, help them to develop their motricity while being immersed into the French language. Classes are very much focused on a multi-sensory approach, feeding the curiosity of the children with their learning environment.
One adult (ideally the mother or the father) attends the class, creating a bond between the child and the parent. It's not required that the parents speak French.
Toddlers 1 (18 to 24 months) - parent can attend the class
Toodlers 2 (24 to 36 months) - parents don't attend the class
A specific theme is developed for a more efficient vocabulary process. We encourage learning through creativity e.g child’s literature, visual arts, arts and crafts, singing and dancing. AFHK uses multiple intelligences as a tool for teaching different styles of learning in the classroom, to embrace the diversity of kid’s skills.

Typical class:
Greetings and welcome ritual
Activities : songs, creative activities

About our courses for Teenagers

  • May 28, 2018

Our Approach
Our highly qualified teachers strive to provide excellent lessons in a fun and friendly environment. Classes are taught in French as much as possible in order to maximise exposure. The small number of students in each class ensures everyone has the opportunity to participate. Cutting edge teaching techniques, varied language resources, engaging activities, a refined curriculum and a positive teaching approach are among the many ways we ensure the best results for your children.
Courses for teenagers provide our younger learners with the opportunity to learn French through a stimulating program. Students will discover the French language and culture and practise speaking through a range of stimulating activities.
Our primary goal is to give teens enough confidence to cope with real life situations. This is achieved through meaningful exercises, such as creative role-plays, simulations, surveys, projects, discussions and task based activities. If the emphasis is on speaking and listening, nevertheless reading and writing are also important parts of the courses and grammar remains an essential component.

What makes the High School Students’ courses at Alliance française a real PLUS?
Our courses complement the school curriculum: new activities and resources are implemented so that the teens can put into practice what they have learnt at school, work around their difficulties and extend their knowledge of French.
Students benefit from a complete immersion in French with our experienced teachers.
Our teachers are aware of the high schools’ curriculum; they know the expectations and goals of the Cambridge’s IGSCE French, as well as the different types of IB French exams (from the ‘ab initio’ exam to the IB Higher French exam). They will help the students overcome their difficulties and extend their knowledge to get a head start. 

  • An action-oriented approach: each lesson ends with a task to interact with all written and oral skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking)
  • A clear progression, with well-defined objectives, based on the Common European Framework for Languages (CEFL), the reference for language learning.
  • A programme that prepares students to take the DELF diplomas, the official language diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education, thus giving them an official and international recognition of their level in French.

Why your kid should learn French ?

Article - http://www.youngparents.com.sg - SourceWritten par Alliance Francaise Singapour


Many of our children are already overburdened with enrichment activities, so don’t sign your little one up for everything. Be selective and choose the right course for him – such as French language classes.
A study of six-month-old babies in Singapore revealed something you probably won’t find surprising:
Children who are exposed to two or more languages have a greater intellectual advantage over monolingual children. The study, which is part of a long-term project known as Growing Up In Singapore Towards Healthy Outcomes (Gusto), is a partnership between the Agency for Science, Technology and Research’s Singapore Institute for Clinical Studies, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and the National University Health System.

The study, which started in 2009, showed that bilingual kids have better memory and cognitive ability than their monolingual peers; they’re also able to focus better. Being able to speak, read and write in another language can also help your child become a “global citizen” later in life. After all, it’s no secret that polyglots are more successful, and more confident when it comes to dealing with other cultures and living, studying and working internationally.

The younger a child is, the better his ability to pick up another language, but even if your kid is in primary or secondary school, it won’t hurt to enrol him in an additional language course. Why French? With more than 220 million speakers across five continents, the language is the sixth most widely spoken language in the world after English. It’s also said to be one of the easiest languages for English speakers to pick up.

Formatrice : Ghislaine Bellocq Réservée aux enseignants de l'Alliance française. 
Cette formation vise l'acquisition d'une démarche méthodologique pour organiser des situations d'apprentissage du FLE adaptées au jeune public (de 4 à 10 ans). Dans un premier temps, les participants seront amenés à analyser des situations d'apprentissage pour en déterminer la structure. Dans un deuxième temps, ils concevront des outils pédagogiques pour animer des situations d'apprentissage et, enfin, identifieront des outils pour évaluer une situation d'apprentissage.
A l’issue de la formation, les participants seront en mesure d'organiser des séquences didactiques motivantes, en relation avec les méthodes utilisées ou à partir de documents authentiques pour des enfants. Cette formation vise l’acquisition de connaissances et la maîtrise de compétences pour créer des situations d’apprentissage motivantes adaptées aux enfants : organiser, animer et évaluer des séquences didactiques dans une perspective de type actionnel.
La formation est conçue selon une approche où alternent les séances d’applications pratiques et d’apports méthodologiques. Le développement de séquences didactiques donnera lieu à des travaux de groupes, à partir d’outils divers (chansons, jeux de doigts, albums, œuvres d’art, vidéos).
