How will I study French?

This summer camp in France is a real French immersion camp because coaches, teachers, and most campers are French (90%). International students can join the French campers during the sports practices and the social activities planned inside the camp. Those camps are real French Immersion Summer programs for high school students. International participants must have a minimum French level (2 years of French studies) to interact with the other campers and understand what the coach says.

On the first day, students take a level test so that teachers can adapt their course to the students' language level. Levels usually go from low intermediate to high intermediate. Qualified native French teachers teach all lessons. Students attend 3 hours of French every afternoon during weekdays.

Excursions and other activities are organized in the evening and at the weekend.

French Plus Sports summer camp in France : Testimonials

The experience as a whole was fantastic, what I enjoyed most was all the new people I got to meet.

I loved the riding camp! The horses were super well cared for and the trainers were very kind.

I learned a lot in the French courses with my classmates. We did everything together. We studied, played and ate.

My parents came with me and dropped me off at tennis camp. The first few minutes I felt very sad. But when I got to my room and met Marie, everything changed. I will always be grateful for her kindness. The camp director was also very attentive to me and the other international students in the French courses. The courses were in groups. The French teacher was very kind, attentive and patient. Days at the camp go by very quickly! Next week is my second week at camp and I don't want to leave!

Excellent basketball camp! I speak little French, if I hadn't needed the courses, I would have booked only the basketball camp program without the courses. It's much more fun to play than to study, but I still learned new phrases!
