About this learning opportunity

Are you comfortable interacting in French and seek to work on precision and accuracy of the oral language?

This 2-day camp is intended for adults with a B1 or higher level of French and designed to review and facilitate the accurate use of a range of points of grammar in authentic oral situations. The camps focus on functional oral language skills and you can expect to hear and speak French all day. Effective second language teaching practices will also be modeled by the facilitator, so teachers in the group can start the school year with a range of strategies and activities for use at any grade level.

Everyone at a B1+ level of French who is to take risks and accept mistakes can successfully partake in all activities.  Please bring a sense of humour as these low-stress, highly interactive days offer plenty of occasions for laughter.

Please use the self-assessment grid of the Common European Framework of Reference to determine if you are at a B1 level or higher for this Level IIIFrench campB1+:
