Abstract/Notes: A French language program used in a Montessori school with children in preschool through junior high grades is described. The program provides language instruction in the classroom by a French specialist as well as separate French classes, a compromise between immersion and the Montessori methodology. The children are able to work independently with French-related materials in their own classrooms at any time, and individual help is also available. French instruction begins when children enter the school at age two and a half and establishes vocabulary and language interest at an early age. The curriculum is participatory and includes grammar instruction. At the junior high school level, students enter either an accelerated French program, grammar-intensive and writing-oriented, or an advanced beginning level focusing on grammar basics and spelling. Special student projects also allow language learning to be expanded beyond the classroom. A curriculum outline and list of expectations is appended. (MSE)
