Language

St John’s students have the opportunity to learn French from Kindergarten to Year 6 and reap the many benefits of language learning.

Learning French is Fun!

Our specialist program is based on authentic French books, songs, cartoons, rhymes, games and craft activities.

Early Start

Primary School is the ideal time to learn a new language as young students do not have the inhibitions older students may have when it comes to mimicking foreign sounds.

I can do it

Students gain a great sense of accomplishment when speaking in French – it is like learning to crack a code! Role-play activities performed in front of an audience also develop self-confidence and strong interpersonal skills.

Brainiac

Not only does learning a foreign language improve children’s understanding of English, it also increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of mind in young children.

The World is a Big Place

Today’s children have to find their footing in our global society. Learning about different traditions and customs helps students appreciate other cultures and broadens their horizon.


 Language Learning facilities

Students from Year 3 to Year 6 have access to our newly fitted French classroom – a vibrant space entirely dedicated to language learning with:

  • an interactive whiteboard
  • iPad technology
  • a green screen studio to create role-play and cultural films
  • 4 work stations focused on developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills
  • whiteboard tables to facilitate group work
  • a large game space
  • a library room with authentic books, magazines, films and board games

Ready for the Big School

In Year 5 and 6, students are introduced to our flipped language education program. They learn about new language concepts at home through educational videos on Moodle and consolidate their knowledge in class through games and projects.
