In a ‛Papillon’ class, the French language lessons are integrated into the school day. The lessons are led by a specially qualified class teacher and continue from Year 1 through to Year 4


Short sequences of French language (10-15 minutes daily) are integrated into general studies, maths, music, art and PE lessons (CLIL = Content and Language Integrated Learning). A Native Speaker Teacher supports the class teacher for one hour a week, lending language and cultural authenticity to the lessons. From Year 3 onwards the pupils have English language lessons for 2 hours a week, as well as continuing with the French language lessons.
