Learning a language can be an intimidating experience that can leave a child feeling discouraged and incompetent. The phrase ‘work smarter, not harder’ couldn’t be more relevant when it comes to picking up a second language.
We work with fluent French tutors on Vancouver Island that know the language inside and out. They will be able to pinpoint the exact roadblocks that are in the way of your child developing their skills, and devise a customized plan to get around them. They will present the language in a way that isn’t convoluted or boring, but in a way where light bulbs are constantly going off because your child is learning effectively.
The bottom line is yes, French tutors are always a good idea. Here’s why:
Classroom instruction is not only limited to a block of an hour or so, but it is also where your child is among many others trying to decipher and figure out what is being taught to them. Regardless of whether your child is having difficulty in a language class or not, your child’s French skills can exponentially improve when they have the chance to work with an experienced Francophone, one-on-one.
Most importantly, if your child dreads or is frightened by going to French class OR brings home a less than stellar report card grade, these are signs your child isn’t keeping up. In those cases, it is definitely time to consider hiring one of our private French tutors in Victoria, Comox Valley, Duncan, Nanaimo and other Vancouver Island areas to get them on track.
When your French tutor comes to your home to work with your child, they will be able to evaluate your child’s skill level in the language and develop a viable course of action for ongoing French tutoring. Practice makes perfect, but more specifically, speaking, writing, listening and reading will improve with guided conversation practice.
Our trained, local Vancouver Island language tutors will provide a nurturing environment that encourages mistakes when learning French, so they can be corrected and worked upon. This means your child will learn French at their own pace and be encouraged to speak in a private environment, free from the judgement or distraction of peers. They will continuously practice skills in:
Canada is a bilingual nation, and there are a vast amount of jobs requiring French proficiency. For example, many national companies need customer representatives, marketing personnel, IT people, managers and administrative teams working in both languages. This applies to banks, cell phone companies, electronic producers, clothing brands, cosmetics, etc. – you name it. Furthermore, a majority of government jobs will require French language fluency..
There really is no downside to knowing French; whether it be opening the door for an enriching career, or as a fun way to meet more people around the world. (Did you know there are over 220 million French speakers worldwide, and it’s the only language other than English to be spoken on all 5 continents!?)
Learning a language takes time. It takes practice. It takes motivation. A teacher in school will deliver the information but won’t always have time to offer individual practice. Learning French also takes instilling inspiration in each child. That’s what School is Easy French tutors are precisely here to do!
