Children's French Summer Camp in France
The aim of this French summer camp is to offer motivated children (boys and girls) the opportunity to spend a linguistic vacation in a pleasant environment on the Riviera. At an early age, the child will get a good start in his/her life learning basic French during the summer course while spending an enjoyable and enriching holiday in the same school and same town, together with their parents.
How To Help Your Child Become Motivated to Learn French
Learning a second language, like French, takes consistent commitments, effort, practice and motivation.
-Getting motivated: Remember why and your motivation will come back
"j'apprends le français parce que...je vais en vacances avec ma famille en France" "j'apprends le français parce que...papa et maman parlent français" "j'apprends le français...parce que j'ai des cousins/ cousines qui parlent français"
-Keeping motivated: Reading French children’s books, to maintain their essential basic vocabulary skills.
Encourage French entertainment classes by showing fun movies the children will like. Even when they focus on the images, they will listen and get used to the melody of French words. With breaks and questions to ensure they understand and follow the story line. The children will notice that the teacher is enthusiastic about them learning French and that will motivate them even further due to loyalty, skills and emotions. Keep the motivation alive by watching French YouTube videos on an iPad or tablet, listening and repeating songs they know. Finally, suggest that the whole family goes and attends a French summer camp at our language school in St-Raphaël! The children will love that the whole family is interested in learning French and in beautiful, fun surroundings.
-Join a French class: French language classes aren't just for adults!
