ISP Plus - Holiday Language Program
The International School of Paris Holiday Language Program offers language courses in French and English on a weekly basis over the summer and other school holidays to any student from ISP or elsewhere.
The goal of HLP is to create a unique atmosphere in which the children will build on their language skills, learning French or English within a strong curricular context in a fun and interactive way.
The program focuses on dynamic oral activities such as role-play, games, and oral presentations on varied themes (music, art, literature, history etc.) to encourage spontaneous use of the language, and provides a contextual consolidation of grammar skills and vocabulary, as well as an exploration of the written language to increase cultural understanding.
2016 Summer Session: July 4-29
Each age group will work on a different project every week. The themes are carefully chosen to fit the interests and skill development of the students. The sessions are all taught in French and English, according to your children’s level. Students are asked to bring a packed lunch. Please note that school is closed on July 14 due to the French national holiday.
