Virtual Summer Camps at AFSeattle



SUMMER 2020 THEMATIC JOURNEY: 

A VIRTUAL VOYAGE AROUND THE FRENCH-SPEAKING WORLD


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the latest announcements from the Governor of Washington regarding the phased out approach to reopening the state of Washington, the Alliance Française de Seattle is moving its French camps online!

This year, as many have seen their travel plans canceled or postponed, we invite you to a virtual voyage throughout French-speaking countries around the world. Let's use our imagination, our creative minds and our best French instructors to explore the globe together this summer!

Travel to Tahiti and Switzerland | Investigate mysteries in Lyon and Marrakech
Discover Belgium and Québec | Visit Paris like a local | ...and more!

What can I expect from a virtual camp?

A mix of French lessons, exercises, and interactive games, managed via the videoconferencing app Zoom, the e-learning platform Apolearn, and daily hands-on projects to do at home. Our camps' weekly themes trigger students' curiosity, activate their need to speak, use their creativity, express their emotions, and inspire them to defend their ideas all while learning French!

Our camp instructors are French teachers with an extensive experience in teaching youth, and who have been constantly innovating our youth programs since March 2020 to adapt to a new online format. We have received excellent feedback on their accomplishments!

For best learning practices, all our online classes are limited to 6 students.
