Workshop of English @ Easter holidays
Workshop of English @ Easter holidays

Cette fois-ci, le stage intensif d’anglais Arts & Crafts avait pour thème la ville !

Les enfants étaient ravis et fiers de construire leur propre maquette d’une ville. Cela leur a donné l’occasion d’apprendre tout un ensemble de vocabulaire lié à leur environnement : rues, rond-point, passage piéton, immeubles, commerces, école, caserne de pompiers, hôpital …. Chaque jour, des chansons et des jeux de rôle leur ont permis de s’exercer s’orienter, à demander leur chemin, ou à l’indiquer à leurs camarades.

Le dernier jour, une représentation de chants devant les parents a clos le stage en rythme.

Feedback from our “Arts and Crafts in English” Workshop during the February school break:

What a great week for all Kidi-participants and our super English Teacher, Amanda!
This time, our theme was “My Dream Home” with kids making their very own miniature house, complete with living and dining rooms, a kitchen, bedrooms, a bathroom and even a garden and garage!

Our kids got to decorate their dream house while practicing English, of course, in a very entertaining setting 🙂

“My Home” was the theme for the entire week and got everybody singing, dancing and playing in English.

A big thank you to Amanda, and don’t miss our next workshop!

This entertaining journey through Europe offers children different ways of approaching the languages spoken in Europe. Like any trip abroad, discoveries linked to each country’s culture are at the heart of the activities. The program includes languages, monuments, culinary specialties…

The use of the games of the Kidilangues website offers a first individual approach with geographic, culinary and linguistic thematics. The diversity of the topics are perfect for sparking the desire to learn.

What languages do the Belgians speak? How do I say hello if I go to Slovakia through Sweden and Austria? Where is located the monument that you have discovered on the screen? What a great way to discover Europe while having fun!

Mr. Hermano Sanches Ruivo was present. He is the Counsellor of Paris in charge of Europe and he supports all initiatives that help children to discover Europe.
