A French immersion summer camp for beginners at Education française Austin

The magic of CircusDoes you child feel like learning French? Well, Education française Austin is providing kids aged 5 to 11 with a perfect opportunity to give French a try: a French immersion camp on “the magic of circus” from June the 15th to the 19th (9AM to 5PM) at the Highland Park Baptist Church located on Balcones Drive. The tuition is $230 (+$30 material).

This is a nice addition to Austin’s offer of French immersion summer camps, centered around Austin International School’s one, running from June the 8th to July the 17th (although La Petite Ecole Internationale serving kids aged 2 to 5 and Austin French for Kids also have one each). And a great way to support the nonprofit teaching French to young francophones who attend American schools and need this after-school to keep learning French grammar and spelling.

Learn about the cultural, historical and technical aspects of various forms of puppetry with these addictive hands-on workshops!”
