It’s no secret there isn’t a very large community of French speakers in Western Canada or the U.S.A. Whether you’ve been to Burnaby, Richmond, Vancouver, Surrey or Coquitlam, or other parts of this country it’s probable you don’t bump into Francophones on a regular basis. But that doesn’t mean French is a useless skill. On the contrary, there are many good reasons to learn French even though you’re not living in a French-speaking area.
Hiring a professional French tutor can be a big decision. So we figured we’d give some ideas that would help you determine if in-home French tutoring is the right choice for your children.
Is your child frustrated with learning French in a classroom? Some kids just don’t take well to learning French in large groups. They need steady, individualized attention. Some kids learn best by having intense one-on-one French conversations with teachers. It can be a challenge for these needs to be met in a class filled with 30 to 40 other children.
Observe your child’s interests and disposition. Are your kids drawn to novel experiences? Do they like exploring and doing new things? Do they like meeting new people? These might be early indicators of how much they will travel or how often they will socialize with people from different backgrounds. If children appear to be adventurous, learning a new language such as French can be a huge asset.
Do your children have a way with words? Do your kids have fun switching up their styles of speech? Can they pick up accents and new vocabulary quickly? Can they do brilliant imitations of celebrities? Children who show these proclivities may have the gift of languages. If this is the case, French language tutoring may be one of the best ways to nurture that gift.
So take notes on your children. Be on the watch. Find out if they are doing well in class. Look out for clues that may suggest a gift for languages. These observations will help you determine whether your child will benefit from learning with a professional French tutor from School is Easy Tutoring.
