About Summer in French
Our two-week immersion program offers teens of any level a comprehensive approach to language acquisition. Our native French-speaking teachers, remarkable resources (including the largest private French library in New England) and our convenient location near many other cultural institutions allows our Summer in French program for teens to combine language learning and cultural discovery into one immersive experience. For teens who prefer to focus on one aspect over the other, we offer these two portions of the program—our Morning Language Program and our Afternoon Cultural Discovery Program—at separate prices. We offer a one-week session of our Morning Language Program from August 24 - August 28 - a perfect refresher for students before heading back to school!
Morning Language Program (9:30 AM - 12:30 PM)
Through oral and written comprehension as well as speaking and writing exercises, students acquire the linguistic tools they will need to effectively communicate in a variety of contexts. The program is divided into four skill levels, determined by a placement test. Interactive class activities and a task-based approach help students to learn level-specific grammar and vocabulary, all while discovering Francophone culture through French literature, artistic movements, distinctive regional traditions, and idiomatic expressions. Past students have used the program to get a head start on the academic year but also to prepare for the AP French exam.
