New Hope School, a private elementary and middle school located in Clifton, NJ. This French immersion program caters to FOR GRADES 1 THROUGH 8 and is delivered by GainVille Learning Center during a weekly full-immersion 60-minute session at the school as part of the After School program in Clifton, NJ. Our 'BONJOUR AMIS' 12-week cultural workshop immerses children in the French language & culture through grammar & sentence structure, poetry, music, art projects, story time and class discussions while enabling them to make personal connections that maximize the overall learning experience. By contrasting and comparing, students gain new perspectives through worksheets, pictures, instructional videos, audio CD's, popular songs, games, and YouTube videos to provide a total immersion experience in the French language & culture. This language-based cultural approach to learning ensures students are grasping new language concepts as well as retaining old ones, leading to long term memory retention in the French language. Students are grouped by age & level of language proficiency.
