"My daughter Lisa, now 11, has been growing up in the USA. My wife and I have always regretted to be unable to efficiently transmit our French cultural heritage to her. We discovered efgb upon our return to Boston two years ago. efgb has fully met our wishes: after only a few months, surrounded and supported by motivated and proficient teachers as well as lovely new friends, she was able to read novels, watch movies, and even organize her thoughts on paper in the French language.
efgb is a fantastic complementary French education system geared towards teaching bilingual children how to become more proficient in the French language as well as more knowledgeable in French history, geography, and social environment. Needless to say that all this combined with frequent weekend gatherings (fair, French theater, networking at the Swiss consulate) has made our family life richer and much more fun."
Evelyne and Dominique
"The French classes of efgb meet perfectly the expectations we had for our two daughters learning the French language. Each week, they find themselves in the company of other bilingual kids and realize that they are not the only ones in that same situation.
The program is serious and playful at the same time. The few homeworks they have to do are not cumbersome and require us parents to get involved a bit, which motivates the children.
The teachers are really involved in their work. They are motivated and are available by email both for the children and for the parents who may have questions. efgb is a serious, flexible, and creative program. It is well adapted to 5-11 years old kids. It has qualified staff who is devoted to the cause of learning French."
Yolande and Phil
"My son is six years old. He was born and raised in the US and his first language is English. Summer vacations spent in France with his French cousins and a few French courses here and there had taught him a few French words and short expressions, but he was never very motivated to learn the language and speak it at home with us, even though his sister and his parents are fluent in French. Thanks to efgb, he now takes the initiative to speak French at home!"
"In addition to the rather impressive progress Chloe has made in a few months in reading and in writing, she has found a blooming joy within a group of kids she has met at efgb classes.
She has realized that she is not the only one with a family where one speaks two languages at home, where one sees the grandparents who live in France only once a year, where the mother has an accent…and where bilingualism is a strength.
Belonging to a group of kids who go through the same experiences as she has given her a confidence that she would probably not have found without the courses of efgb."
"An enthusiastic and experienced teaching team, a reassuring environment, the location of the classes in a park, diverse and motivating courses, phenomenal progress, our experience with efgb is flawless."
