This workshop is especially for teenagers who have completed grade 10 French or more, that is, they have received at least 100 hours of French language instruction. During the Camp they will work in small groups to develop their grammatical competencies.

The tuition is designed to support the secondary school curriculum so it will expand the student's vocabulary and structures on the themes they work on at school. The workshop will essentially be conducted in French for the students to benefit from this total immersion over the four days.
