June 21, 2021 Posted by: Kidzapp Team Kids Activities

If you’re looking for your children to stay active, both intellectually and physically, this summer, while having a good time, the answer might be this French Summer Camp by Alliance Française. Specifically designed for kids, your boys and girls will speak French before they even realize they are learning it.

Alliance Française Dubai has been offering high-quality courses and kids holiday camps for years. Their summer camps include French courses for all levels – starting from complete beginners to native speakers, looking to improve or practice - bundled with fun activities throughout the week; sports, educational games, arts & crafts and more.

“Our camps have been designed to meet the expectations of parents and children.” explains Charlène Critelli, educational coordinator at Alliance Française Dubai. “The program is made for children’s development both in terms of French language education as well as creativity, social interactivity and motor skills."

The camps will run for three weeks in July. Each week, your kids will embark on an exciting new journey in French. The first week, children will travel around the world to discover cultures. The second week will revolve around discovering the world of circus - going on stage, juggling, working on balance. And the last week will be dedicated to music; to unleash the little artists’ potential. 
Here are some of the benefits of joining a full-immersion language camp:

• It’s an effective learning environment that will help develop your child’s communication skills and confidence.

• It creates renewed motivation thanks to the large variety of engaging and fun activities, leading to visible and steady progress.

• It’s an open window to the French-speaking world thanks to intercultural and creative activities.

The camp runs from July 4th to 24th (excluding Eid week) and is suitable for your children ages 3 to 10.
