Summer Camp in English

 That is the number of  years that the Extension Summer Camp Program has been offering its students an exceptional   academic and cultural experience.  We propose not only a high quality, full-fledged  linguistic program but one that also covers all aspects of American culture through its traditions, history and arts.

Throughout the years, we have established a  reputation of excellence thanks to our team of teaching professionals. 

At the start of each Summer Camp, our teachers prove themselves with innovation and creativity through an original linguistic approach that brings out the maximum learning potential in each student. This approach motivates each learner with a constructive eye and imagination that makes the student feel part of the group. 

Our mission: to give each language learner the necessary tools to develop his/her individual talents.

Morning Class

Class time consists of daily intensive English courses. The program proposes an interactive language learning experience through immersion. 

Through our pedagogical approach, our students experience another culture and broaden their horizons beyond a conventional linguistic acquisition. 

Our students work together to maximize learning, both individually and collectively. The objective is to encourage higher achievement and greater productivity by stimulating motivation, higher-level reasoning, and critical thinking.

Each student's personal and academic strengths are reinforced, while developing self-esteem, responsibility, and social competences. 

Students' interactions are promoted through learning materials such as newspaper articles, music, documentaries, movies, etc.

Each student's level of English proficiency is evaluated on his first day at the Summer Camp.

A minimum of 8 students is required to open a class.

Afternoon activities

In addition to morning classes, the Summer Camp offers a variety of optional activities in English between 2pm and 4pm . Students must be registered for the morning classes to take part in the afternoon activities.
