Beyond English Language Learning
Primary English Language Immersion
The Primary Program is dedicated to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where English language acquisition and personal growth are equally important. Students discover English or improve their communication skills in English with academic goals in mind building oral and written production at an advanced level.
Students alternate between classroom instruction and project work and participate in experiential learning programs that are specific to Extension or school-wide: Halloween and Songfest celebrations, Monthly theme, Dr. Seuss Wacky Wednesday, End of the Year Show, ASP Food Drive. Reading and storytelling play an essential role in supporting English language learning.
English is the language of communication and of instruction across all classes and lessons are tailored to each group.
Secondary English Language Immersion
The Secondary Program creates connection to the real world, challenges students to master skills and, at high school, anticipates their needs as they prepare for their future. The curriculum focuses on key language areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing to improve communication skills in social and in academic contexts. Students work from engaging and meaningful materials: Anglophone literature, current events, social issues and community building projects.
Exceptional authentic learning programs are open to secondary students that places them in situations of interaction with their peers at ASP and in the international community:

More About Our Annual Courses
Supporting A Successful Immersion Experience
Your child's motivation is essential for a successful and learning experience. We invite you to review the program together to select the program that is most suited to your child's interests and objectives.
Your involvement as a parent is equally important to a successful experience. We encourage you to inform your child prior to the start of the year that English only is spoken on campus and that it is the language of instruction with reassurance that teachers will guide beginner students to understand and to communicate. Regular attendance, timeliness, preparedness and a willingness to experience new approaches are also essential to success. If immersion in a new language can be daunting at first, it is also an exciting experience because it places students in a real-life context. Progress will soon follow for students who are proactive during class time and who make the most of the environment provided by the teacher and their peers.
English Language Prerequisites
English is the medium of instruction for all courses and specialty activities in primary and secondary programs unless otherwise indicated. Our English language programs are designed to develop language acquisition or development at all levels through a guided immersion in English approach and targeted instruction.
We value a diversity of profiles and interests, and form our groups correspondingly with each student's language learning objectives at heart. We focus on our guiding principle that students learn as much from each other as they do from personal effort and individualized instruction.
In language classes, students are grouped by age and according their ability to communicate in English: beginner, intermediate, advanced and Anglophone.
For your child to have a successful experience in an English class, placement in the correct level is essential and we rely on the information you provide about your child's exposure to English, prior instruction in English, proficiency and degree of motivation. Please indicate this to the best of your ability. If you do not know, we can assist you.

- What is the school's protocol with regards to Covid-19 ?
- Do you offer lunch, transportation services ?
- Is there a discount for siblings?
- What is the minimum & maximum number of students per class/activities ?
- Can I enroll my child during the school year ?
- What is the policy for responsibilities of participants ?
The Extension Program applies the government's recommended COVID protocol for schools in France and a strict hygiene protocol of its own: high-touch surfaces are regularly disinfected, students are distanced in classrooms and in the cafeterias (the upper school cafeteria is equipped with plexiglass separations and outdoor picnic tables are available on campus for students), group mixing is avoided as much as possible and teachers and staff ensure that mask-wearing is respected. A strict protocol also applies to buses.
We must remain aware of our responsibility to each other as a community–a small lapse can have a serious impact on many others and can lead to the class's closure. Parents and children should understand the importance of respecting the health and safety measures diligently at all times while on campus but also at home or with friends.
Finally, please be rigorously attentive to your children's state of health and keep them home from class if they are showing any COVID-19-like symptoms. If you feel that there has been even the slightest risk of exposure, please let the office know, seek a rapid test at a pharmacy, or, in more serious cases, contact your doctor to proceed with age-appropriate testing.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we strive to keep our community safe.
The ASP Extension reserves the right to cancel a proposed session if the number of registrations is insufficient ( See our cancellation policy above)
A maximum of 16 students per class. Grades and proficiency levels may be grouped.
We don't honor requests for friends to be in the same class for our languages and activities programs.
