  • Begin the presentation with an attention grabbing introduction to get parents thinking about the presence of French in their own lives – it really isn’t a foreign language!
    Ask the parents “How do you wish someone ‘Have a good trip!’ when they are leaving on vacation?”
    Encourage participation from parents and award them with a French-related prize that they can share with their child when they go home (a bookmark, sticker, etc).
    A positive attitude about learning a language is perhaps the most important starting point – if parents support the programme and see relevance in the subject, they will in turn pass on their appreciation to their children.
  • Many parents, especially those who might not use a second-language in their daily lives wonder why their children are learning French – give them something to think about when sharing these ideas.
  • We borrow terms from French as well! At a restaurant you may order the soupe du jour or apple pie à la mode.
  • Clarify for parents what the goals of core French.
    Often parents have only their own personal experiences with French as a school subject to relate to - the pedagogical approach has changed a great deal over the past years.
  • Define core French is not – it is not the same as when parents were in the French classroom.
    We learn vocabulary in the context of a theme that appeals to students interests.
    We do not drill verbs – we look at structures in the context of the stories we read and the projects we write.
  • Allow time for parents to ask questions or invite them to speak to you personally following the presentation.
