French classes online

Over the past few years we have designed a distinct online learning format with options suitable from SK to Grade 6. This format has been enhanced during the pandemic and gained lots of popularity among parents. It offers a combination of live classes on Zoom in small groups and individual self-study based on our own customized, web-based resources.
