Franck Brichet - Do Re Mi Languages

Franck Brichet - Do Re Mi Languages


5th grade teacher by day, songwriter by night...
 

From a small town in France, Franck moved to the U.S. in 2009 with his American wife. He teaches in a French immersion school for American children called Académie Lafayette in Kansas City. In his time there, he has found that his students (and any French language learners, for that matter) have difficulty remembering French language concepts. Being a singer-songwriter himself, he thought, “Why not teach French through song?”

In 2005, Franck wrote his Masters thesis on Learning French though Song and found that when lessons are embedded in music, students can often retain a great deal more information—in part because they commit the songs to long-term memory instead of short-term memory (which can be easily used to pass a test, but doesn’t hold up over time).  Just think of how the average American can name all 50 states in alphabetical order thanks to a song learned in childhood!

In 2014, Franck was awarded the Fund for Teachers Fellowship for his proposal to teach through song. This launched him into the creative process of recording an album and writing a workbook to accompany it—and ultimately founding his new company, do re mi Languages. With your support, Franck will continue to create new songs to teach French as well as other languages!
