A quick overview of what you'll find in French camp

Specialized French language camps offer a deep immersion in conversational French that will advance kids' understanding noticeably, even over a week. Camps or sessions might be tailored to a specific age group or proficiency level. Some camp sessions at a basic level are ideal for students who are just beginning to study French. More advanced camps and sessions are appropriate for students to improve conversation and reading skills.

An oral and written test may be conducted at some camps in order to assess a camper’s current level of French. Campers will be placed in the camp class or session that best suits their needs. Students develop skills in listening, speaking, writing, reading, conversation and grammar in the French language. Instructors will be given to some one-on-one instruction. All communication focuses on the deepening of vocabulary, syntax and understanding of the French language. From the beginning to the end of this highly intensive instruction, including outings, classroom interaction and extracurricular activities, kids' French improves.

The advantages of French language camps

French camps ensure that the student not only understands but also speaks French well. The following elements are covered in these camps:

  • Repertoire or vocabulary
  • Verb structures
  • Grammar and syntax
  • Pronunciation
  • Colloquial expressions
  • Text and oral comprehension
  • Oral and written expression

These camps also ensure that kids meet others from the same area who share an interest in the language. 

Fluency in another language opens up career and travel opportunities and aids in personal growth and social opportunities. 

There are many other benefits of any kind of camp experience

Related camps and other French acquisition programs

Overnight camps in Quebec immerse kids in French language and culture. Camps also have various other activities like sightseeing, picnics, indoor games and sports.

International travel programs are ideal for older teens. These expose you to fun and adventure abroad and afford opportunities to interact in French.

French language schools should definitely be on your radar, if you want to fully develop language skills and prepare for a career that requires French.

Questions to ask

As you are talking to camps on your shortlist, you will have many questions. Here’s a quick starter list of things to keep in mind:

  • How much and what percentage of time is French spoken during camp? 
  • Aside from French language instruction, what kind of cultural learning is available through the camp?
  • How much one-to-one instruction is available, should that be needed? 
  • What is the ratio of leaders to campers? 
  • Are kids expected to bring anything? And will they be taking anything home? 
  • How is discipline handled in the camp? 

That’s just a brief sample.
