What can you learn in 2 weeks in a language camp? Can there be a positive effect in such a short time? Children often do not show tangible results in language study during 9 months at the school, and here they offer the study, when the child came to rest. I do not understand!!!
But for the team of the French language camp Club Lumière is all clear and we can “unscramble all”.
So, it must be said that the main goal of the team is to develop children’s motivation to learn French and to actively use what they already know. To do this, our team uses game methods, the technique of active communication with the natives, introduces the linguistic component in almost all activities, master classes, creative workshops, sports events and sightseeing visits.
A special focus lies on the positive emotions associated with the introduction to the French culture, the nuances of the French language and our French teachers. It’s no secret that the development of motivation is directly related to the atmosphere created in the group, with creativity in the learning process, with an understanding of the child’s interest, with the personality of the teacher or animator.
Having understood the child and having found the so-called approach to the child, having managed to interest him with the help of various creative and “understandable” activities for the child, we achieve the results that reach the level of friendly relations between adults and children. Of course, this gives the same development of motivation that we set as our goal.
The happiness is somewhere between freedom and discipline.
