French & English Classes

Course Description

• 12 to 15 hours of language training per week;
• Maximum of 10 students per group allowing for full participation by all students;
• Well-supervised and qualified teachers;
• Teaching at the level of each student;
• Fun courses;
• Oral practice privileged;
• Books and all educational material provided during the course at no extra charge;
• Diploma for each participant.

A short oral test will be held on arrival to qualify campers for the different levels : beginner or intermediate. Accordingly, courses will be held either in the morning or in the afternoon.

Objective

The course is designed to be challenging and amusing at the same time. The course will encourage work in cooperation with other students. It will also show that campers are responsible for their own progress. The contact with young people from other cultures will bring home the importance of languages in the 21st century on a daily basis.

Communicative Approach

In order to achieve fluency, various activities are undertaken in spelling, dictation and pronunciation as well as short writing tasks.

Each class consists of three teaching periods of fifty minutes each. The first two periods are structured. The students learn grammar, new vocabulary and practice communication skills. The third period is more relaxed: the students watch excerpts from films and play games.

Our language camp promotes the development of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Warm-up activities, core activities and follow-up activities give students regular opportunities for practicing speech, vocabulary, grammar and writing skills. Illustrations provide important visual support.

Since both English and French are spoken, students can practice their new skills on a daily basis.

One of the best English and French camp for kids in Canada!
