French is a gift that we can give our children. We believe that a child's ability to learn a language differs from one to another. If your child is struggling with French, don’t give up. Some take a little longer than others and that is ok. We at L’AMI Learning understand these differences and will meet your child at their own learning level.
We love to create real life learning and practice experiences to help your child learn to speak French confidently - whether in school or in the community. We love to get students up and moving!!
Getting Started - L’AMI Learning tutors start by helping students with identifying common and some complex sounds in a variety of different settings - including games, videos, reading and more. This helps sounds become second nature to them and this in turn improves their proficiency at reading and writing.
Vocabulary building - We live in a region where French is a minority and consequently students are not using French in the community. L’AMI tutors enforce speaking only in French and this practice helps build vocabulary and confidence. L’AMI tutors give them the necessary vocabulary through games, stories and oral practice to help with their reading and writing. This is VERY IMPORTANT to us. We know that if the students have the vocabulary they will succeed.
Writing - FI students have a lot of frustration with writing because they lack the vocabulary and sounds to express their thoughts. We teach our students to use resources to them how to overcome these obstacles by showing them how to use the dictionary/online sites to find words that they do not know.·
Reading comprehension - we teach them how to interrupt meaning in texts. We give them the skills to know what to do when they face difficult words.· We teach students reading comprehension strategies (re-read the text, activate prior knowledge, use context clues, infer meaning, think aloud, locate key words, make predictions, use word attack strategies, visualize etc.)
