         Teacher: Veronique Bennett

        As a French teacher, born and raised in Belgium where French was spoken to me even before I was
        born, I purpose to recreate the immersion of a first language. I also learned my second
        language,  English, in immersion style by going to England at 18 years old. I enrolled in an
        international school in Cambridge, England, and in about 8 months, became fluent in this beautiful
        language. Of course the immersion here, will be only one class a week but you, as a parent, can
        recreate it daily at home by playing the short videos of songs and stories I will suggest to watch at
        home even if you speak very little French yourself.
