Regular Immersion Session

Thematic Unit: Inventor’s Workshop – In this camp, teachers will propose a “problem” and children will have to invent a “solution” using their creativity and craft materials given in class. Their inventions will encourage problem-solving skills while they are exposed to new vocabulary and sentence structures, and are encouraged to use the language they are learning to describe their inventions.

 Linguist Apprentices (Ages 3-5) Through music and play, campers will develop their conversational skills in a second language. Children will engage in arts and crafts and hands-on projects while learning another language.

Language Ambassadors (Ages 6-10) Campers will participate in project-based learning activities that will help them connect the foreign language they are learning to meaning, providing them the opportunity to develop their conversational skills while learning about fun and interesting topics.
