NEW: Intensive French Immersion Course

*Offered August 24-28 only.

Taking place the week before school begins, the course is intended to acclimatize students to learning in French after a summer forgetting the language. The course will review concepts seen in the previous grade and introduce students to French ideas and vocabulary they will learn in the coming year. The focus is primarily on communication but basic grammatical notions will also be reviewed.
