Dear Parents and French Learners,
What a year it has been for everyone! We are so excited to announce that registration for our Summer Camp for 2021 is now open. It has been a very challenging time for everyone, but especially parents and their kids throughout the course of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our efforts to be the sunshine our weary students and their parents have needed have proven to be all the worthwhile. We hope to give back to our community of French language learners and lovers with this camp to challenge and delight!
This year, we are planning on having a jam-packed, camp full of exciting activities on a rotational basis so the kids can maintain social distancing, while also enjoying a variety of activities every day of the camp!
The camp will run for the entire month of July, and the activities will include baking, outdoor activities on a trampoline and bouncy castle, singing French songs together, playing games to improve our knowledge of French culture and linguistics and so much more.
I believe that at Le Petit Écolier, we can provide a great basis for your child to start not only learning but also loving French from any age. It is a safe space where kids can flex their linguistic muscles with not only our teachers, but also their peers and get exposure to the Francophone world! Try our method today, we have offerings both onsite and online.
Thank you for considering our camp for your child this summer. I look forward to meeting you in person and answering any questions you may have.

As a fellow Canadian student, I studied French growing up and continued up until university as I knew it would be a valuable skill. However, after a long 11 years of study, I struggled to speak the language when I finally had to use it. During my undergrad, I had the opportunity to study in France on an exchange program, the cultural and linguistic immersion was phenomenal, however, my French wasn't. It didn't make sense, I had studied it all these years, I knew how to conjugate the pesky subjonctif, yet I still struggled to speak it with ease and confidence. It wasn't until I developed a passion for the language that I saw a turnaround in my ability to speak French. For me, being immersed in the culture and actually seeing French outside the traditional classroom was the game changer, and is what ultimately lead to my French improving significantly.
I joined Le Petit Écolier because their mission is just that, we help students truly love and speak the French language. Our language Centre is not your typical language school, the beautifully designed Centre is equipped head to toe with resources and various themed rooms to make learning as engaging and stress-free as possible for our students. Our passionate Native instructors focus heavily on instilling that love for the language. Our various Events, Summer Trips (hopefully resuming next year), and Camps are all designed to fully immerse our students in both the culture and language. Unfortunately, this passion is much harder to develop in the traditional classroom alone due to large class sizes and the fact that schools follow a strict academic curriculum. Our classes are on average 6 students. Our lessons are in a way supplementary support (or that extra push) to help students succeed at speaking French with ease.
If I was able to go back in time, this is a school I wish I would have had the opportunity to join as my abilities in French would have peaked much earlier on.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions about our programming. I would be happy to help! :)
