    This is a one-day, teacher-led event for young children and their parents. The idea of a family hour may be a play-group of sorts that can incorporate exploratory French by means of songs, crafts and children's literature, games or simply exposure to the language. This is the first event of this sort that we will offer, but we'd like to connect with the community of parents and children interested in the Francophone language and culture. This is not a baby-sitting event, but an enrichment event for both parent and child. Get to know some of the AFKC community at this first meet-up of it's kind. No prior knowledge of French is required.

    French is known for its beautiful but tricky pronunciation. Sometimes silent consonants will actually sound out when they are followed by a vowel. This is one of special features of French pronunciation that connects words together and we want to connect with you to learn and practice the various types of linking that exist in French: liaison, elision et enchaînement. With Kerry you will learn when these are optional, obligatory or forbidden!
