French Summer Camp

Our French Summer Camp will be held from Monday July 4th – Friday July 8th 2022.

Classes are held for one hour every day at our tuition centre in Castletroy, Limerick. This allows children to immerse themselves in the language and learn the same amount of content that would normally be taught in a 5-week course.

If you’re interested in signing up, please complete the application form below and we will be in touch soon. 

Suitable for Children aged 4 to 12 years old

Our French Summer Camp is suitable for children between the ages of 4 and 12 years old.

We accept learners of all levels and abilities. 

Children are grouped according to age and ability and we have a small pupil-teacher ratio which allows us to provide individualised attention and support. 

Fun & Interactive Classes

All of our French Classes are taught using child-centred methodologies to make the lessons fun and engaging. This includes songs, stories, role-play, arts and craft activities and games. 

The actual lesson content will depend on the age and ability of the children in each group. 

Children who have no experience of learning the language will begin by learning basic vocabulary and phrases such as ‘hello’, ‘good bye’ and ‘how are you’ as well as vocabulary associated with colours, emotions and numbers which is the foundation to learning any language. 

Children who are at a more advanced level will build upon this knowledge by focusing on more complex words and phrases while also learning “situational French” in order to give them the skills necessary to be able to communicate effectively in a French-speaking country. This includes learning how to ask for directions and how to order food in a restaurant.  

In every group, lessons will focus on developing a combination of reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
