“Les Marionnettes de Passage” is a 3-month project to teach French,based on the journey of a troupe of puppets travelling from home to the education centre. It is particularly suitable for children aged 4 to 10, from A1 to C1 level. It is also a training in the field of the pedagogy of amazement and enthusiasm during which we work in close cooperation with the teachers.
It starts with the reception of postcards where the puppets announce their decision to come to the school for a show. It goes on with the reception of songs and videos and concludes three months later with the show.
The whole project is also available without the need of the final show.
Our objective is to feed children’s natural enthusiasm, offering the best of our experience in the fields of teaching, psychology and scenic arts. This project activates the children’s innate learning skills through two main tools, play and enthusiasm.
The material we send is designed to be easily integrated in the scholar curriculum. It is ideal for activation through TIC approach. Songs and tales are created specifically for the project and gently encourage children to build their self-confidence as well as to respect their environment. The price is within the range usually dedicated to this kind of pedagogical and artistic proposals.

WHAT TEACHERS SAY ABOUT IT
“I have observed that the pupils are much more creative, receptive and participative compared to a more conventional teaching method. The puppets are without any doubt what children prefer and best remember about their French studying year. It is the event that they still speak about the year after.”
