The Lower School French program introduces children to the language and culture of France and Francophone countries. Using pictures, movement, music, art, and drama, children learn new words and practice the pronunciation of this beautiful language. Through photographs, stories, videos, and cooking, children learn about the traditional culture of France as well as French-speaking countries in Africa and the Caribbean. In third, fourth, and fifth grades the students read poetry and short stories and create and perform skits in French.
