The Program

The Program

 

The FASNY Summer Immersion French Program (June 24- July 29) is a unique bilingual program (half or full day) where children, ages 3 to 11, will gain or reinforce their language skills through age-appropriate activities in French.

 

Research shows that an early start, teachers with native fluency, total immersion and practical experience are essential steps on the path to lan­guage proficiency.

 

From experience, we also know that, if en­ joyment is there, the learning will naturally take place. That's why our program revolves around fun and hands-on activities led by French native instructors that will stimulate the children's conversation skills but also open them to the French and Francophone cultures.


Campers will get an hour of French class per day where they will view or review a certain number of words. All of the class vocabulary will be reinforced all week long throughout the different activities.


The children do NOT have to know French to enroll.
