Children from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 4 learn French at the ISTCI. They are exposed to the different sounds and learn words, expressions and instructions.

Focus on Primary School Languages. by Señora Rateau. How are modern foreign languages taught in primary schools in Provo? Our blog this week looks at the importance of learning languages in primary school and the recent changes at the International School.
In French this month we had many activities going on. We mostly learned about the environment of a tropical island, nature, the sea. In Grade 2 we learned about the weather and the seasons. The children had a special art class, from a Canadian artist. They learned special skills and tricks to draw and colour the four seasons. Everyone enjoyed the experience. Here are some pictures of the class and a few drawings.
