Milk Magazine (English) - - CONTENTS -

WHAT DOES IT OF­FER? Qual­ity lan­guage study hol­i­days abroad.

OB­JEC­TIVES? To­tal im­mer­sion in the cho­sen lan­guage, plus any num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties: sports, hand­i­crafts, wa­ter sports, etc.

ADVANTAGES? Com­ing into con­tact with other young­sters, your chil­dren prac­tise the skills ac­quired in class from the teach­ing team. WHERE? Canada, Ire­land, the USA, Scot­land, Switzer­land, Ger­many...

FOR WHOM? Kids aged 7-17 have ac­cess to sum­mer camps, col­lec­tive lan­guage study pro­grammes, Amer­i­can cam­puses and pri­vate English schools. They may also stay with a lo­cal host fam­ily. WHAT IS IT? A hol­i­day camp for 5-12s.

OB­JEC­TIVES? Chil­dren learn about na­ture and an­i­mals on a farm or in a bio­di­verse en­vi­ron­ment.

ADVANTAGES? It’s a great way of dis­con­nect­ing from ur­ban life for a week or two.

WHERE? An 18th-cen­tury Nor­man manor set in 30 hectares of grounds, and three houses adapted to dif­fer­ent age groups: the Grange (Barn), Etable (Sta­ble) and La Mazurie.

WHO GOES THERE? French chil­dren, nat­u­rally, but also English and Span­ish chil­dren, which makes con­ver­sa­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties more in­ter­est­ing. WHAT DOES IT OF­FER? Lan­guage study hol­i­days in the Alps, in an English-speak­ing fam­ily.

OB­JEC­TIVES? This lan­guage im­mer­sion pro­gramme is less fright­en­ing than one abroad and en­ables chil­dren to go away for shorter pe­ri­ods or more of­ten.

ADVANTAGES? Your chil­dren gain con­fi­dence speak­ing English, im­prov­ing their pro­nun­ci­a­tion and en­rich­ing their vo­cab­u­lary. They share the lan­guage and life­style of an English-speak­ing fam­ily in a nat­u­ral set­ting in the moun­tains.

WHERE? Numer­ous Alpine des­ti­na­tions ac­ces­si­ble from Lyon and Geneva of­fer a mix of sport, na­ture and cul­ture.

FOR WHOM? Sec­ondary school pupils (as well as stu­dents and adults).
