This program is aimed at pupils who already have some knowledge of French; but who may need some language support in order to improve their oral and/or written skills.
This program has been created in 2015; it is run by teachers specialized in teaching French as a foreign language.
In the past seven years, more than 600 pupils have had the opportunity to benefit from this support program.
The pupils are enrolled in the program for 3 hours weekly. The sessions take place during school hours and normally happen during English and Swahili lessons as most of our non-French speakers are English speakers. However, they can make up for the English lesson as some subjects are taught in English during the normal class session. They are benefiting from the best teaching conditions possible as they are in small groups (maximum of 6 pupils). The FleSCo teacher adapts her teaching to the individual needs of the pupils. These language’s sessions, allow them to reinforce their communication skills. This program runs from CP to Sixième and has no duration limit as it caters for the needs of the students as they progress in their learning.
Regular meetings with the class teachers are organized in order to tailor the teaching contents, and to allow a connection to be made between the language used in class and the topics they work on during the support sessions.
The specialized teacher is in charge of assessing the students’ progress and needs in French as the language of education.
Pupils can benefit from this support program as long as they need.
