What if our family does not speak French?
Some LK students do not speak any French when they enroll in our school. However, our welcoming environment will allow all of them to learn French. LK provides a nurturing, friendly and safe environment where children learn the language through play, songs and class activities. All the teachers speak English and children know that whatever language they speak, their teacher will always listen. Support FLE (French as a Second Language) classes are also offered to non-French speakers. All correspondence from the school is done in both French and English, our teachers/school administrators are bilingual and use the language parents are the most comfortable speaking. It is important to note, that students whose families do not speak French are very successful students at Lyceum Kennedy.
Parents are not required to speak French at home for their children to be enrolled and progress at Lyceum Kennedy. However, they can encourage their children and support their learning process by buying, renting or borrowing French CDs, videos and books; subscribing to French children's magazines; using French-speaking baby-sitters; sending their children to our French Summer program; travelling to French-speaking countries; organizing play dates with French-speaking families; etc...
What are the benefits of bilingual education?
According to the Center of Applied Linguistics - Immersion is defined as a method of foreign language instruction in which the regular curriculum is taught through the medium of the language. It is important to note that a foreign language is the vehicle for the content instruction; it is not the subject of instruction. Chances of achieving full fluency are greatest when the child starts exposure to the second language as early as possible. At Lyceum Kennedy, we offer a well-balanced bilingual immersion program where the acquisition of French is done without difficulty. After year (more or less), students are able to express themselves in French, especially being surrounded by a community of French native speakers. At the same time, students develop their English language skills following the standards of the New York State English Language Arts curriculum. Even though students have less English instruction time than in a monolingual school, you will notice that they will transfer their reading skills from French to English.
