Children learn French through fun activities such as cooking, singing, sports, board games, crafts… These activities enhance their motivation and their involvement. The children are more attentive and forget their inhibition and their fear of saying something wrong. The children are more active in the learning process and this helps greatly the memorization of words.
At Solenn’s School, the children are not in a “school” situation where the point system place them in either a “good” or “bad” student category. Each activity has different levels of language and each child can participate with its own level without feeling self-conscious. There is no comparison between the children. Each child is encouraged to show his gift (singing, dancing, playing sports, crafts, drawing…) in a non-competitive and beneficial way to the others.
This way of learning greatly helps children who have learning difficulties in the traditional school system based on reading and writing. They regain their confidence and they have a more positive attitude about learning languages.
