Vacances Linguistiques 2018

WELCOME

Our Linguistic Holiday offer a range of packages unaccompanied children and families

Our bilingual summer camps offer a range of workshops for children to help them learn French (or English as case may be) with the involvement of native speaker leaders. The camp is divided into a French learners and English learners section with interaction between both camps during breaks and outdoor activities.

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

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

Linguistic page -image 1Whether your child is a total beginner in French or a native French speaker living in an English environment, our activities provide opportunities to improve their confidence to speak through drama, role play and other practical workshops (Cooking, sports, film, art and outings). Children are sub-divided by age and linguistic ability.

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!
