I have a sone of 13 and a daughter of 3, dropped them both in at the deep end and they love it! Yes bit of struggle at first but my son is now fluent after 7 months (he came here knowing no french) and my daughter speaks bits of french and english....oh and 3yr old rubbish too! If anything I have worried about their english, e.g. my daughter will be able to speak fluent english and french, but she will need extra help with her english as she wont be able to read or write english being in a french school.

Chill and enjoy.....kids love it here!

Bon Chance
