MYL Linguistic Holidays 2018

Welcome

Our Linguistic Holiday offers a range of residential and non-residential programmes both in the UK and France.

Our programmes aim to help children learn French through having fun and interacting with native leaders.

Language is best learnt through immersion and our programme provides your child or teenager an opportunity to:

  • Meet French native speakers
  • Create life time friendships and memories that will inspire their language learning experience.
  • Build practical life skills through our programme of fun activities in the French.
  • Increase their oral confidence through performing arts in French.

Whether your child is a total beginner in French or an advanced learner our activities provide opportunities to improve their confidence to speak through drama, role play and other practical workshops (Cooking, sports, film, art and outings).

INFORMATION FOR CENTRE RESIDENTS

Our Priority for our residential visitors is a safe, friendly and cosy environment. We want to make everyone feel at home. This starts from the moment they wake up and continues until your child falls into an exhausted and happy sleep at the end of the day!

Sleeping

Our rooms are allocated to participants according to gender and age. Upon booking, you can request your child be put into a dorm with their friend. If your child is coming alone, do not worry – we will ensure they are put in a friendly and fun dorm!

Every child has a dorm leader who they can talk to if they need anything and who will support them throughout camp!

Safety

Safety is always our number one priority and our staff are trained to place your child’s safety above everything else.

We have our own safety system which includes the following:

  • Registering every child 3 times a day
  • All areas are safety checked before activities take place
  • Staff lock up every night
  • Staff undergo a rigorous training scheme before camp every year
  • Before camp, we carry out a suitability check against all staff. We use the Disclosure & Barring service (DBS) and the barred list to process these.

We have an experienced and qualified first aider on each site and possess our public liability insurance to cover all activities.
