APEM offers French after-school classes to English speaking children who want to learn the language and culture of French.
In this program, the basics of the French language is taught in both spoken and written expressions through a variety of fun activities. The main objective of this class is to expose the students to the French language and culture to arouse their interest and desire in learning French in general.
APEM follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment (CEFR), this document provides a practical tool for setting clear standards to be attained at successive stages of learning and for evaluating outcomes in an internationally comparable manner.
The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions which can be divided into six levels:
- A Basic Speaker
- A1 Beginner
- A2 Elementary
- B Independent Speaker
- B1 Intermediate
- B2 Upper intermediate
- C Proficient Speaker
- C1 Advanced
- C2 Mastery or proficiency
The CEFR describes what a student will achieve in the areas of reading, listening, speaking, and writing at each level.
Students may take a test, the DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) to advance to the next level.Visit www.coe.int for more information.
Our Educational Coordinator and teachers work together to adapt French learning methods to each student’s group level.
We encourage a lively and playful environment as we believe that playing and socializing is the best way to learn without even noticing it.
