The My French Classes Saturday School offers classes for

  • bilingual children
    regular classes from K (grande section) to 9th Grade (3e)
  • children who have been exposed to French, but whose French is a bit rusty
    remise à niveau / refresher classes (to later join the bilingual classes)

Our objective is that all students in the bilingual program can (re-)ingrate any Francophone school system at the age-appropriate level at the end of each school year.

We are following a curriculum per age customary in Francophone countries and our teachers, who are all professional teachers, adapt the program to the specific needs of bilingual children who are in American schools.

Saturday Classes

Courses take place every at the St. Jane de Chantal School building on Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda.

Saturday from 2pm to 4:30pm. Students arrive at 1:45pm.

Full Immersion Summer Camp

The My French Classes Summer Camp offers a varied mix of fun and academic activities which all take place entirely in French.

These activities will be taught and supervised by Francophone teachers, coaches and supervisors.

Sport programs in French

In order to support our students in their efforts to master the French language and to provide a well-rounded francophone environment that is meaningful for young French speakers, we are also offering soccer and basketball classes.

The training sessions are held entirely in French by licensed and francophone coaches and are designed to make students progress in their respective sport and to enhance their ability to naturally function in French.

Theater in French

This class is taught in French by a professional French teacher who has worked previously with children in theater-related projects and acting classes.

Theater-related activities help develop the students' imagination and aim to develop their ability to dig deeper into the subtleties of the language.
