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