Camps include at least one daily 30-40 minute class in the morning for both Core French and French Immersion students: activities focus on developing conversation skills, building or consolidating general vocabulary on a wide range of topics and practice high-frequency verbs. For French Immersion students, emphasis is put on reading and writing skills. Small groups will let instructors to identify areas of weakness or strength and help each student individually. Progress is monitored on a weekly basis to ensure learning goals are being met.
Recreational activities include arts & craft projects, baking classes, salt-dough workshops, visual arts and outings in High Park. All activities are conducted in French and designed to help students build oral proficiency in a fun and lively way. Before each session, students are handed out a small conversation kit containing popular phrases and review them with the teacher; they are encouraged to interact in French at all times and make constant use of this kit. After a couple of weeks students will become familiar with the most basic instructions and words of encouragement from instructors or facilitators; they will be able to name or describe in French many elements in their immediate environment.
Summer camps start on July 20 and run for 8 consecutive weeks till Sep 11. Please note that the last week is an intensive week with full academic mornings, ensuring a smooth transition into the new academic year.
