MY FRENCH IS BASIC - CAN WE COME?

We tweak each lesson to suit all levels and teachers are experienced in adapting the sessions to ensure everyone learns and has fun! We have a range of people attending the sessions - from school French to bilingual families!

WE ARE FULLY BILINGUAL - HOW CAN THE CLASSES HELP?

Being an expat can bring difficulties in bringing up your children with your home language. Mini French provides an environment where children can have fun in their parents native language - I also bet you we can teach you new French songs..!

WHAT AGE CAN WE START?

From birth! With a new language or especially if you are already speaking French in the house, the earlier the better. Think of the sessions as brain training for babies - gentle stimulation! We hope to help you find the confidence to make it part of your routine. Many people come for the social aspect too. We pride ourselves on being very welcoming đŸ™‚

MY TODDLER ISN'T SPEAKING MUCH IN ENGLISH YET - SHOULD WE WAIT?

I wouldn't let this put you off. Babies and toddlers have a far greater capacity for absorbing a new language than adults! Evidence suggests that we can't 'confuse' them. They will store their new language in their brain quite easily.

IF WE MISS A WEEK CAN WE JOIN ANOTHER CLASS?

Mini French has been running for 6 years now and we have sessions across Edinburgh! Just let me know by call or email if you cant make a session that week and we can fit you in elsewhere.

I have taken my daughter to these classes since she was 10 weeks old, she is now 10 months old. This has been a great experience for us, I have learned new songs to sing to her, she has a chance to interact with other children, I get a chance to get out of the house. Felicity is really friendly and the games are good fun. I'm looking forward to continuing with this as long as I can.  Lorraine.
