The children in Casa gather in small groups weekly to participate in French class. Our French teacher Elisa creates her lessons to engage the children while teaching them basic vocabulary like colours, numbers, shapes, and family members. Her program incorporates reading stories, playing games, singing songs and partaking in other fun activities. These types of activities encourage repetition of vocabulary, thus making knowledge retention much easier in a more exciting way. It is heartening to see the children pick up French books independently and recreate the stories they have read.
