Live The Language - Live In French! Austin - French Immersion Camps for Kids

Give your children the opportunity to expose or immerse themselves in the French language by living it in daily activities during our

Progressive French Immersion and Cooking Camps
for children 7 to 15

Every Summer, Live In French offers a variety of Progressive French Immersion and Cooking Camps for children. They learn French, learn to cook, enjoy our farm animals, and have a ton of fun! 

See what Stephanie Joos, Austin Montessori School Mom, has to say about our camps:

"How many times have you wished you’d learned a second language? At home with family or friends, listening to the language being spoken , understanding intuitively what was being asked for or said in daily living, absorbing language and almost effortlessly mimicking the language in return. That is what Nathalie offers in Live In French camps and classes. So often learning a new language is frustrating and the older you get, even embarrassing and difficult. Live In French is a comfortable, stress free, embarrassment free environment to absorb the French language and culture. My son Connor, 12 and with no French language experience, spent two weeks in camp with Ms. Nathalie and came away with such an exuberance for the language and culture. He spent the summer talking about the experience and rattling off phrases that he learned in camp. Ms. Nathalie not only taught my son French, she taught him to love the experience of learning French. I highly recommend the Live In French program!"

WHAT DO WE DO AT THE PROGRESSIVE FRENCH IMMERSION AND COOKING CAMP?

We learn French!

In our "Camps de Vacances", students new to French acquire the vital tools and foundation to confidently continue to explore the French language. 

Students with previous French experience benefit from our school-break camps by reinforcing their current knowledge of the language and attaining new levels of fluency:  Advanced camps are full immersion right here in Austin, and campers are sollicited to practice their conversation skills with native speakers. This year, we are expecting to have 3 native speaker camp guides onsite, which will allow for a wide breath of activities and learning experiences, and of course, lots of conversations in French! We will also teach best practices in Language Learning to ensure the campers have a great toolbox  for French and any other future language learning endeavor. Most of these organizational tools and strategies can be applied to many other subjects, with benefits reaching far outside their French studies. Our aspiration is to instill a lifelong love for learning!

For the Beginner camps, we use songs, games, arts and crafts,yoga, exciting activities, and the Live In French method daily to introduce the basics, so that all learn practical skills to be able to comfortably start communicating with a good accent on day 1. We will work on the following topics as much as the general motivation level of that week's participants allow:

  • Basic communication skills (basic greetings, name, nationality and residence)
  • Numbers to 69 and basic colors
  • Days of the week, Months, Time and Dates
  • Common Animals
  • Meals, food and drinks
  • Basic clothing and weather words
  • Body parts and directions

Our camps immediately and repeatedly put learned vocabulary and key phrases in real context, making French relevant, practical, and very enjoyable: this is a French conversation camp!

We learn to cook French classics

Each day, we serve the children delicious, freshly prepared breakfast and lunch, often using popular French recipes.  We use organic/raw/NON-GMO and home-grown products as much as possible: meals are home-made and prepared from scratch and strive to be balanced. Campers will learn to prepare basic but yummy classic French recipes. A bilingual recipe book will be provided at the end of the Beginner camps so they can show off their cooking skills at home, in French or in English. 

We will publish our menu shortly before the camp starts, but here are some of the traditional French dishes & beverages we typically serve, and that campers will most likely get to help with:

- French crudités (shredded carrot salad, cucumber salad, etc.)
- pesto soup
- croque-monsieurs
- pizza from scratch
- fresh pasta from scratch if time permits
- homemade croissants and pain au chocolat
- homemade quiche
- homemade bread  with EVOO rosemary/garlic dip
- delicious imported French chamomille/orange blossom herbal tea

This year's Camp Menu will be similar to last year's: click here to take a look at it!

- sing popular French songs to enhance their accent without effort, 
- play French games (7 families, 1000 Bornes, Monopoly Junior, Zingo, Memory)
