Junior and Middle Curriculum: Languages: French

At the Junior and Middle schools, students learn French through a revolutionary approach to second-language instruction. The Accelerative Integrated Method (AIM) uses story, theatre, drama and music to put language in context. Specifically designed stories fuel a range of activities that push students to higher levels of oral and written fluency.

Students master a common vocabulary using techniques such as hand gestures and language immersion to aid retention. They learn to ask for and give information as well as speak about themselves and their interests.
