FIL - Français Immersion Loisirs:
Enjoy an unforgettable summer holiday in France! FIL organizes French language summer camps in France for teenagers aged from 11 to 17 from around the world. FIL 10-day summer programs combine French language workshops with a wide range of recreational activities, evenings and cultural excursions. With FIL, you improve your French while having fun! We encourage our participants to speak French all day long, in addition to their French language classes - through "immersion totale". We can also offer tailor-made year round options for educational groups.
A language holiday with FIL is a real adventure: on horseback, in a kayak, tackling ropes above a canyon, wake boarding or in the swimming pool, you will speak French all day long.
Our participants come from throughout the World to spend an amazing time together at FIL! Our groups are the « Juniors » aged 11 and 15, and the « Ados" aged 15 and 17. Our « plus » : there are young French people in each group.
Our method? We are convinced that you need to practice a lot to be able to speak a foreign language, so FIL's priority is to develop oral expression through daily French practice. We encourage our participants to speak French all day long, in addition to the French workshop they have every day. Speaking the language of Molière must become automatic: they must live, feel, think and also dream in our language! And with FIL, they'll live in a French-speaking environment!
Spending a summer with FIL means sharing daily life in French in an international atmosphere! But it is also a lot of great activities, original and creative French workshops, meeting awesome people, and sharing unforgettable moments.
What matters with FIL is for our students to feel more comfortable with French and to have fun !
With FIL, you’ll live in French all day long.
* The French workshops: 7 courses per stay - 3 hours each = 21 hours total
* In small groups of 6 to 8 people of the same level
* Very creative learning sessions: role-playing games, interviews, radio or video reporting.
* The native French FIL instructors are experienced and qualified "French as a foreign language" teachers too. They know how to adapt the workshops perfectly to each participant.
* Individual follow-up for French progress and well-being at the camp + no entry tests + detailed certificate
** GOAL : With FIL, it’s more about speaking and expressing yourself in fun learning sessions than writing. Our students make great progress in understanding French.
You'll gain confidence which will make you feel -FIL :-) like speaking French. You will quickly enlarge your vocabulary, learn new expressions and tell jokes in French!
Our aim is to Make all participants feel at ease in expressing their needs, their personalities and difficulties. With the FIL method, rather than being punished for any mistakes, the participants learn from them and receive constant guidance to have plenty of opportunity to express themselves in French and understand so much more!
With FIL you learn how to put your French into practice by means other than those at school. In two weeks your French won't be faultless but you 'll speak far more fluently by living in a French-speaking environment.
