Creative language summer camp with friLingue


Once again we invite you to participate in the summer edition of this camp, where immersion in languages ​​passes through the prism of the practices of the arts.


How does this camp, where language learning combines with the practice of the arts work?

  • Take the time to exchange ideas, imagine and build an artistic project that organises the week’s schedule.
  • Help yourself to explore diverse cognitive fields (material culture, visual memory, mnemonic) to exercise curiosity and forge a culture of your own.
  • Imagination and creativity are not confined only to the classroom; they are open work languages ​​through authentic materials and expressive and creative practices.
  • Kick-start and develop a portfolio, know how to express your ideas in the target language to evolve an art project collectively.

We find that school education is based on a division into disciplines and often content that’s too theoretical is counterproductive for both learners and teachers. We believe that learning and remembering is about connecting, creating and making things work.


Associating practices of arts and languages ​​allows us to connect knowledge and know-how, to make them resonate to feed a contextualised learning process.

Some examples:

  • We’ll make bound notebooks according to a procedure that’s explained and shown in english using different available materials, These notebooks will then serve as a basis for gathering linguistic knowledge acquired throughout the process.
  • We’ll also create an exhibition of paintings or silver prints inspired by a theme first studied in its linguistic aspect (themes such as "movement", "images", "monsters" etc.).

The english courses and activities are transversal; they connect and answer each other. It is by multiplying the resonances within projects that are always based on the desires of students that we think to make them learn, to consolidate their learning and to teach them to understand.

However, here are some things we guarantee:

  • Minimum 10 hours of language courses to strengthen the language bases, paying close attention to the learning needs of each individual student.

  • Minimum 5 hours of communication classes, exchange of ideas, discussions and communal writing.

  • Minimum 3 different workshops to follow immersion in the target language.

  • Minimum 2 excursions per week, including one full day.

  • An evening programme where everyone is free to follow a group activity (campfire, game night, creative disco) and continue their workshop work. Always in the company of teachers and experienced animators and motivated by the projects.
