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 Summer Programs!

Every Summer, Live In French usually has been offering 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! 
We also offer several types of programs for children ages 7 to 17 throughout the School Year and the Summer months. Most take place at La Provence Ranch (7606 Wildwood Circle in South-West Austin). 
Because of the efficiency and popularity of our children programs, we often sell out quickly, so we recommend you register early: registrations are accepted on a First-come/First-served basis!  

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!"

2017 SUMMER Half-Day Camp (includes 3% paypal fee)

Summer Program for BEGINNER and INTERMEDIATE levels:   
if you want your child(ren) to more quickly and deeply progress on their path to French fluency, this is the program for you.... When following our weekend immersion programS, children attain fluency by learning and speaking in realistic, applied situations. 

The BEGINNER program is highly interactive: we strive to create a fun and relaxed environment while effectively engaging your child's enthusiasm. Because we play a lot of targeted games and sometimes cook something French, the classes feel like a treat rather than work, and the learning is almost effortless. We will learn a lot though, using a mix of auditory, visual, kinesthetic and sensory approaches through games, a music CDs & its bilingual lyrics booklet, and did we say games? The goal is to help children speaking spontaneously in full sentences and comfortably engaging in light conversations, entirely in French. 

INTERMEDIATE  Students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their French skills and help train the complete Beginners among other things, thereby reviewing and reinforcing their current skills, and provided with more advanced material to work on. 

This is a 10-week Mini-Session of regular 2-hour Beginner/Intermediate French Conversation classes (Saturdays 12:40pm to 2:40pm from 7/1 to 9/02) 
Cost will be $350 per child flat, with a $30 sibling discount - Ages 7 and older - Maximum 8 children.

Students can register to just one, or both sessions as desired.

Both sessions will follow a Summer format of Full Immersion activities, games and conversations, but unlike the School Year session, there will be no grammar lesson or homework. ADVANCED students of French  will have many opportunities for guided conversation time, more audio listening, more reading, more culture discussions and games, and will end with some cooking served to the parents by the pool side. 
The first 5-week session, a  15 year old French young lady will be attending about half of the time  to speak to the students in French about her experiences as a French teenager. 

Each 5-week Mini-Session will take place 8:30am to 12:30pm on Saturdays as follows:
- JULY Mini-Session = July 01 to July 29

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)
