The 23rd French Film Festival begins on February 27, and for the next two weeks, NolaVie will be spotlighting a couple of the festival’s featured filmmakers.

École Bilingue

In a city that takes its name from the center of France, learning French as a second language seems intuitive. École Bilingue of New Orleans begins its French immersion program in early childhood, with the goal of ushering along global citizens. The school’s director of admissions, Courtney Kloor, sat down with NolaVie’s Kelley Crawford to talk about summer at École Bilingue, as well as the fast approaching back-to-school season.
