French term or phrase:s'intier
Whilst I do get the jest of what the sentence means, could someone clarify what the verb "s'intier" actually means. Can't seem to find a reference for it in my dictionary or on-line.
The verb was used as in the following sentence:
Les enfants peuvent ainsi s'intier aux calculs pour des jeux simples (d'addition, de soustraction).
Explanation: This is what the Oxford-Hachette has to say:
s'initier verbe pronominal s'initier à l'escrime/au parachutisme (to start) to learn fencing/skydiving; s'initier à une langue to start to
learn a language; s'initier à la photo to learn about photography.
The children can start learning arithmetic through simple games.
