Tune in to hear testimonials from LFS parents sharing their experiences, the methods they employ, and how they actively support their children. Listen to students share their before-and-after stories with FLSco. Lastly, gain insight into the program with the participation of teachers who frequently welcome students into their classes for intensive FLSco sessions.

What is the FLSco program?

The French As the Language of Instruction (FLSCO) program is designed for students with minimal or no knowledge of French and those learning the language who need to strengthen their skills. FLSco allows students, starting from K3, to integrate into the French education system. Many non-French speaking students currently enrolled at Shanghai French School have successfully completed the FLSco program. This two-year curriculum provides students with the essential foundation for school-level learning.

How does the FLSco program work?

The program spans two years and facilitates students’ access to fundamental learning skills needed for school. To enhance their integration, students are included in a reference class corresponding to their age. They receive tailored working sessions, depending on their needs, with a specialist teacher dedicated to helping them progress sufficiently in French to follow their reference class.

In small, level-specific groups, children explore, practice, or reinforce their knowledge of French through specific methods and various materials, such as language games, books, songs, or other age-appropriate activities. These activities empower them to confidently enrich their vocabulary and progressively improve their understanding and expression in French.
