Discover Le Club, become a member and check out our Spring 2019 semester schedule!
What is "Le Club"?
Le Club is a unique immersion program in Charlottesville for children ages 4 to 10
Once a month rendez-vous is set in a different location in town for an afternoon of activities 100% in French
A week prior to the event, a booklet of activities is sent (vocabulary sheet & games etc.) to give our members a chance to discover the monthly topic and vocabulary. Monthly topics are related to French speaking countries cultures but not only!
On the event day, Le Club native teachers Sophie & Raphie meet with the group at the drop off point and "c'est parti!" for an afternoon of Fun in French!
The event usually includes (depending on the location): an introduction to the monthly topic, a presentation by a French speaking member of the community, cooking & sport sessions, crafts, vocabulary activities, songs and games!
All activities are in French and members are encouraged when speaking to the teachers or other members to use French as well.
