At the request of groups - or by individual request where at least 5 learners enrol for the same level - the Summer University of Boulogne-sur-Mer (Boulogne-sur-Mer Langues et Cultures) organises study stays for juniors (under-18 teenagers). Our programme benefits from years of experience and knowledge; it is certified and respects the standards set by the French Ministry of Health, Youth and Sport.
A programme adapted specifically for juniors
Dynamic classes combining creative, interactive and game-like activities with the objective of a successful and rapid progression of French-language skills. The main focus is placed on oral communication to allow the young students to speak more spontaneously, improve their pronunciation, and enrich their vocabulary. We also strive to introduce them to French culture and society using concrete examples and methods. 20 hours of class per week in groups of 5 to 12 students.
A large variety of activities that encourage communication throughout the day as students discover the city, the region and its inhabitants. A cultural activities and entertainment programme of at least 20 hours per week in addition to the constant presence of our team of activity leaders.
Constant supervision by our team of qualified activity leaders, most of whom have earned BAFA certification (French Certificate of Competency for Youth Activity Coordinators). They participate in the activities, are in charge of organization and security on a daily basis, and communicate with each participant on a personal basis.
