Le Petit Molière : Bilingual Primary Classes with Small Class Sizes

Cours Molière proposes a bilingual education (50% in French – 50% in English) in small, personal-sized classes. For a century, our classic methods have enabled students to develop themselves and pursue their education in the best schools in France and around the world.

The Method: Return to the Fundamentals

  • To learn with pleasure and rigor
  • Teaching follows the official programs and requirements of the “Education Nationale” and often goes beyond that high standard
  • Learning to read with the Syllabic Method, which guarantees excellent spelling and comprehension
  • A challenging education in English
  • Cambridge Exam preparation courses: «University of Cambridge: Esol examinations »
  • Numerous rewards such as the “Medallion of Heart” and the “Medallion of Progress”
  • Specialized care for non-Francophone children: French as a Foreign Language lessons in small groups
  • A complete uniform: provided by the school, it brings together children from all backgrounds to make for a warmer, friendlier setting

Typical Day

  • The day always begins at 9 o’clock to respect the child’s biological rhythm (students welcomed beginning at 8:15 a.m.)
  • Application and repetition of exercises to facilitate recollection of lessons
  • Introductory Chinese classes every week (for those who wish to learn the language)

As well as:

  • Every week: The students of Cours Molière go to the swimming pool Roger le Gall (12th arrondissement).
  • Cultural and educational outings are frequently organized: museum exhibits for children (Louvre, Centre Pompidou, …), theater, visits to monuments, etc.
