Re: Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley
Have you considered French for Fun in Lafayette (www.frenchforfun.com)? My child has been enrolled there for the past 3 years and has speaks decent French now even though we are an English-only home. The director and all the instructors there are native French speakers, have degrees in education and use the Montessori method of instruction. The program focuses on French culture, as well as teaching basic academics -- all in French! It's a full immersion program (i.e., no English is spoken), and it really works. The tuition is steep, the approach is very academic, and the behavioral expectations are somewhat ''French'', so it's not for everyone, but it's worth checking out as an option to EB. Also, I believe EB thinks highly of the language instruction FFF provides and this may be an advantage in your EB application. Bonne chance! Francophile mom
