The mind of a child is like a sponge and it is ready to absorb whatever knowledge may come. If your child is enrolled in a French Program, the role of parents is as much important as French tutors in supporting them and taking advantage of their receptive nature.
Here are 4 ways parents can support their children in a French program:
1.Learn French yourself:

One of the best ways to support your children in helping them learn French is to start learning it yourself as well if you do not know the language.
Learning together with your children will help motivate them as well and the whole journey can be made a fun process.
It is never too late to join a French program with your children. It will be a great opportunity to bond with your child, as the time you spend with them will mean a lot to them!
PS- We have recently launched 101 Practical French for Beginners. The online course package is a great way to jump in on an immersive French learning experience with your children!
2. French Comics are the way to go:

We can’t emphasize enough why French comics are one of the most creative ways to help your child learn French. Whether it be the adventures of the famous Gaul Asterix, Tintin and his trusted dog Snowy, Gaston Lagaffe, etc., the possibilities are endless!
Fear no more as we have you covered when it comes to French comic books. Here you will find our selection of famous French comics to start with!
3. French music for the soul:

In terms of bonding with your children and learning French at the same time, listening to French music is one of the most joyful activities in our opinion.
With platforms like Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud etc. to choose from, you can further brush up on your French skills in no time, along with the kids.
It is one thing to read French from text, but listening to French music further enhances the learning experience. It adds flavour to it!

4. Add French movies for children to the mix:
