I have a question about the educational system here in Northern France…my son is a student at College Roger Salengro and his sister and him are the first Americans! And of course they entered with no french language knowledge.
I have met with the vice principal a few times and we now have Emilys schedule more fitted to her needs. But my son is spending almost 2 days in Permance…and i need advice on how i can get him back into regular classes-cause he hates Tuesday which is all permance. He days he only does about an hr of work all day and the rest he just sits doing nothing!
The school still hasnt brought in a tutor for my kids but this was promised when we enrolled them in the summer.
Im not complaining…im just concerned. He is picking up french fairly quickly by spending time with his friends and in his regular classes (all spoken in french)…He also has zero homework!!
With Emily…they put her in more art and music classes cause this is her way to learn french alot faster! She was alot more resistant to learning french but we worked together to reel her into the culture!
Any positive advice is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!!
