Chansons for children – learn French through singing

Treehouse Events

April 12, 2018

Tatari 3

Tallinn

Singing lessons in French allow children and their parents to learn about language and culture, while offering a valuable linguistic base to continue learning the French language!

The most productive time to learn a new language is from the time of birth to the age of 5-10. At this time, children have the possibility to learn another language quickly and without an accent. Therefore, learning a new language earlier will give you a very important advantage. In these classes, we will sing songs for children in French, giving children the chance to get used to the pronounciation and to the sound of the language. The more we wait to learn a new language, the more we are likely to develop an accent. 

In the class, the parents will learn the songs as well so they could sing them to their children at home later. The classes are also a possibility to practice French for those who already speak it. 

No need to speak French when coming to class - just bring your good mood and an open mind. We are open from 10 to 12, the class begins at 10.30. This will give you the chance to arrive in your own time, to play and chat with your friends before the beginning of the class. For more information and to register, visit the website or to the Facebook event

The classes will be taught by Christelle Jego. Christelle is from Lyon and has lived in Estonia for two years. She has a babysitting certificate and has already worked with toddlers in France.
