Homeschool Resources - French Immersion
Have you ever heard of someone taking their child out of French Immersion and trying to keep the French in even though they themselves do not speak the language and the child has been in French Immersion for 7 years?
I am looking for French curriculum and other ideas should we keep her out longer than the trial year.
Thanks for the question. I haven't heard about taking a child out of French Immersion - but am hoping one of my readers has, and will comment on it.
I am sure there are some good French curriculums and it is a case of picking one that suits your child. I would also recommend a multi-media approach
- use lots of videos, PC games, podcasts, French tutorial sites as possible - to keep your French program interesting and fresh. Open Culture
have a good list of podcasts available.
We have enjoyed both Michael Thomas and Pimsleur language programs. I would also recommend you take a look at LiveMocha.com
. It is a kind of free, online version of the Rossetta Stone program - with your work marked by native speakers who are also in the program.I hope that helps.If you have some ideas about this, please leave Andrea a comment.
