French Classes, beginning Oct 30, 2013, from 2-3pm, with Carole Dubois at the Cadyville Wesleyan Church following regular co-op classes.

There will be four classes (10/30, 11/6, 11/20, and 12/4) for the rest of 2013 year for $40 per child (possibly a reduced fee for family rate, being worked on presently). Classes will resume when co-op begins in Jan 2014.    Here is a description of teacher and class as stated by Carole:   " I am French Canadian, as you may guess, my first language is French. I know quite a bit about children, I raised four of my own, as a single parent.  I taught French in Willsboro's Middle School and High School. I organized the French Club and a few trips to Montreal. I also taught in Peru's High School, for a one year contract only.  I plan to teach your children the basic of French like numbers, days of the week, months, weather adding some usual common sentences. I will teach French just like any French text book, I think its important to know, because some parents may think the French Canadian language  is different than the European one. I traveled through the province of Quebec and part of France, mostly Paris. I am very familiar  with  both cultures, I will  be able to answer almost any questions on that subject.  My goal is to make  learning  French enjoyable, my experience taught me children learn very well, while having fun."
