French After-school Class in Bubb Elementary School

Original post made by EFBA-Bubb, Cuesta Park, on May 15, 2011

EFBA (“Education Française” in the Bay Area, a non-profit organization) is offering French After-school Classes in a local school Bubb Elementary and will continue the program in the 2011-2012 school year. There are two types of classes - Anglophones (for Non-native French Speakers) and Francophones (for Native French speakers). All Francophone children who have been attending the program during 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 school year will stay together next year in a class for 2nd Graders and up. Any new students in this age group are welcome to join. If there are enough enrollments, a new class will be added for Francophone children in Kindergarten and 1st Grade in Fall 2011.

Depending on enrollment we may be able to change class time to meet the children's and parents' needs. To pre-register, please go to: Web Link

This class has turned out to be perfect for my 7 years old daughter. Anjeli has been speaking French on and off, as we mostly communicate in English in our mixed heritage family. I am trying to speak French to my daughter as much as I can, but as every knows, the more the kids are immersed into school and social activities, the harder it get to motivate them to speak another language. Her French would get a boost on our yearly vacation overseas, then slowly fade over the year.
The EFBA class not only gave Anjeli an additional motivation to speak French by offering a total French immersion and social context once a week, but it also taught her in the past few months to start reading in French, in a fun and playful way.
