Class Description


What you'll learn in this kids camp:


We prepare a fun theme for every week with playful and educational activities that will make learning French a game or a thrilling experience. The camps are intended for all levels of proficiency. We will do artistic activities and games. Non-French speakers will be in full immersion.

Group settings: While playful activities (games, art projects) are planned with the whole group, kids will be separated in proficiency groups (based on age and their French level) for language activities.

1. In the group for English Speakers (from beginners to 2 years of French)Whether your child is a beginner in French or has been doing some classes, they will have a great experience at our French camps for English speakers. The camps are in immersion, but making sure the children improve according to their skills and abilities. Our tutors are native speakers and have experience with children.

Our goal is to recreate a natural language environment, in which the children will learn easily, fast and with a lot of fun.

What do we do?

In the morning, the children have French lessons. We will talk for ex. about friends, family, animals, the weather, food, sport, school, daily habits or more content tailor-made to the level of the children. Our program is based on communication: the children don’t just learn vocabulary, but learn how to ask and answer questions, and formulate sentences. For games and craft and mostly in the afternoon, the group is mixed with the advanced speakers. In full immersion, we play games, sing, play skits; and do some crafts according to the interests of the children and the theme of the week. Playing and doing fun things together facilitate the language learning process. Some parents noticed that their children learn more in a week camp than during a whole classical semester. This is due to our small sized groups and our personalized instruction. Next to the language experience, your child will also make new friends, and learn to communicate in a creative way.

2. Group for advanced, bilingual or French speaking children in Chevy Chase: This group is for children who have already strong French knowledge or are bilingual/ French speakers. Even though the camps are really fun and playful; many activities are educational as well. They reinforce the language skills of the children, such as their abilities to debate, present little projects, tell or read a story, or play a skit.

What do we do?

The kids spend time together, but do activities separately. So the advanced children, especially in the morning, have more pedagogical activities: discussions, reading and writing activities in relation with our weekly theme. Our native and experienced tutors make sure that every child will excel according to her/ his abilities. The afternoon is more recreational: we play games, sing, play skits and do some crafts according to the interests of the children.
