2020 is a strange year so far….it started off ok but with the distant news of a new Coronavirus and within 3 months, our worlds were turned upside down. With a large part of the world’s population in lockdown or quarantine, we have had to adapt to new working conditions, new ways of educating our children and new routines. For some, this is easier than others and we all know we are saving lives by staying at home.
But the uncertainty is hard for everyone and continuity is important. We are lucky to have the internet and Alpine French School is lucky to be able to continue working remotely to provide French online courses via Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp or Facetime. A large amount of our regular students happily transferred their lessons to an online platform of their choice and they are happy to be able to continue improving their French! Now that we have all got used to doing everything remotely, using Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp and Facetime have become habits, even for those amongst us who weren’t so up to date with the latest technology before!
We have many children and teenagers also taking French online courses via Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp or Facetime. Many parents and children are hesitant at first about French online courses for children but as we all know, children are very adaptable and love technology so their courses are proving very popular. It is great to see children’s French really truly progress in a short space of time! There is no hiding on an individual online lesson like in a large classroom and children have to speak French and listen to their teacher and the experience is always fun for them thanks for our fully-trained dynamic teachers who make the lessons interesting for the children!

What I’ve noticed schooling my bilingual expat children during lockdown – from a language teacher’s point of view
Lockdown has been a unique situation for all of us. We have all had our own challenges during this time. On top of this, many of us have had the challenge of home-schooling our children. My children were born in France, they went to a French childminder (nounou) from an early…Continue Reading
