Resources for parents of French immersion students

Learning another language can often be frustrating. Learning in another language is almost always so. But it is also immensely rewarding. At school, your child has access to knowledgeable teachers and other school staff to help when needed. You may also use a private tutor bridge any gaps to fully understanding the material.

A common problem for parents, though, is how to help your child with homework, or even just understanding things your child’s teacher writes. To help parents with this, FrancoZone offers courses specifically designed for parents of French immersion students. If interested, simply contact us.

Below are some other helpful resources for parents:

 

  1. Canadian Parents for French: an excellent organization organized for and by parents with an interest in their children’s knowledge of French.
  2. University of Calgary’s Counseling Service for Parents of Bilingual Children: a good place for advise from experts from the University of Calgary.
  3. The Société de la petite enfance et de la famille du Sud de l’Alberta: offers educational programing in French. It is also a good place to meet other francophones/francophiles.
  4. The Centre de Ressources Francothèque: offers access to various media forms (DVDs, books, games, and even activities) all in French.
