This new edition of the AAWE Guide to Education in France features a directory of hundreds of bilingual and international schools all around the country. The directory includes information such as fees, curriculum, diploma, transport, schedule, Wednesday and holiday programs, extracurricular activities, and facilities for students with special needs.
Covering preschool through high school, topics range from choosing a school to understanding the acronyms and terms of the French education system. Education professionals and experienced parents discuss school choices, bilingualism, and reinforcing English. The go-to reference for families who need to understand the French educational system and schooling options, the AAWE Guide to Education in France accompanies international parents researching their child’s school options in France.
This edition offers expanded French/English glossaries, including terms and acronyms for accommodation and special needs, and a section of model “notes to the teacher” which are handy tools, helping any parent wrestling with grammar at breakfast-time!
