Studying at LFIK


The LFIK is open to all age groups, from Petite Section – Nursery (2-3 years old) to Terminale – 12th grade (17-18 years old) and welcomes students of all nationalities, whether they speak French or not.

The school year starts in September, but it is possible to join us thoughout the school year.

Kindergarten education is mandatory in France. As true learning cycle in which French is the main language of instruction, kindergarten stimulates and structures oral language and gently introduces skills for first grade (reading, writing, counting) so that the students can then begin primary school with more confidence.

Your child doesn’t speak French? No problem!

We will set up a tailor-made plan. The French as a Second Language (FLSco) program meets the needs of non-French speaking students who are new to the language or have a partial understanding of it, so that they receive the necessary support for a fulfilling education. For each child, an adapted weekly schedule is defined and set up in consultation with the parents. The number of hours per week is determined on a case-by-case basis and is subject to change according to the student’s progress.

Our language courses meet both the requirements of the French program and the specificities of a French school abroad, including the mandatory study of the host country’s language.

Two language courses are offered to families: English and Japanese. Each pathway aims to reinforce the learning and mastery of the chosen language by offering a volume of practice hours in addition to the regulatory hours and courses in French curriculum subjects taught in foreign languages. The courses are set up as early as kindergarten and constitute a progressive system, with a weekly volume adapted to each age group (from 30 minutes to 4 hours of language per week).
