L’École Buissonnière is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious
organisation offering French education with a highly interactive and varied approach. We are located on Södermalm and welcome children between the age of 6 and 13. We prepare our students for DELF. It is a diploma in the French language that gives access to college studies in France (corresponding to TISUS in Sweden). We are partly funded by the French Ministre of Education.
Our organisation offers education and activities in French one afternoon per week. The goal is to provide bilingual children with the opportunity to continue learning French as well as increasing their knowledge of French-speaking countries and their culture.
During the academic year we have around 40 children tutored by four French-language teachers. The classes take place every Monday afternoon on Södermalm between 2.30pm and 5.30pm for the younger children and from 3.30pm and 5.30 pm for the older ones.
The pedagogy consists of learning French, both orally and written. Our courses are structured around different themes. These include history, geography, art, music, and gastronomy.
Our long-term goal is to develop and improve language ability. Also, children have the opportunity to take the DELF test (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française), which allows for the possibility of studying in France.
