These programs are adapted to the age and level of French of the participants. HOWEVER, WE SPEAK FRENCH ONLY DURING THE WHOLE WEEK.
We love to offer the kids a way to enjoy French! That's why we never force a kid to speak on stage if he/she is too much stressed. We are going slowly but surely ;-) Some kids say only a word or two on stage, but they are speaking and listening a lot during the preparation. The real benefit of this program is the process of creation. The children are encouraged to create their own French story based on the theme of the week. They are working through improvisation in a group. We help them structure their story. When they are old enough they are writing their text and learning by heart. They are fully engaged because it is their own creation. We are always amazed by the huge pleasure they have to write down their text. The excitement is at its height for the performance.
