Holiday Language Program (HLP)

The International School of Paris Holiday Language Program (HLP) is part of the new ISP Plus structure that the school is launching this year. The 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 mission of HLP is to develop a passion for language through an interactive approach where students are given the opportunity to take ownership of their learning. The teachers strive to build the students' confidence and self-esteem in a stimulating and fun environment.

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. The program provides a contextual consolidation of grammar skills and vocabulary, as well as an exploration of the written language to increase cultural understanding.

Summer Sessions

2016 Dates: July 4-29 (school closed July 14)

The registration for 2016 summer sessions will open in March. The summer sessions are open to children from ISP and elsewhere from ages 3 to 16.

Each year, HLP offers project-based sessions which will promote meaningful language acquisition. The program links all language learning directly to the project, with all activities aiming at improving language skills.

Each age group will work on a different project every week. The themes are carefully chosen to fit the interests and skill development of each age group. The sessions are all taught in French and English, according to your children’s level.

Primary School campus - rue du Ranelagh, 75016 Paris

Early Years group (ages 3-5): Morning language classes focused on active oral activities such as role-play, games, songs, puppets, to encourage spontaneous use of the language followed by an afternoon of musical, sports, arts activities related to the week's theme. The group will also go to the local park one afternoon and attend one field trip (by private bus) each week. A nap time can be arranged at parent's request. Classes will run from 9:00 to 16:00. Additional day care is available.

Primary group (ages 6-11): These students will be grouped by age and by level when possible. They will attend morning language classes and afternoon activities related to each week’s theme. They will also participate in two field trips each week. The language classes will focus on dynamic oral activities, as well as providing a contextual consolidation of grammar skills and vocabulary. The students will begin to explore the written language depending on their level of comprehension to increase cultural understanding. Classes will run from 9:00 to 16:00. Additional day care is available.
