Whether your child is learning French at school, one of the parents is French or simply you want him/her to learn French, join us in this interactive workshop where we will go through the basics of conversational French.

The children will have the chance to test their capacities and learn new words and skills whilst being creative on stage (this class is also suitable if your child is a complete beginner).
