Summer School Special Language Weeks

This is a great opportunity for children who are learning a third or fourth language during the school year, to study the background of the culture that goes with the language. These language weeks will become a precious summer experience!

Children who are not enrolled in French or Chinese elective classes during the regular school year are still welcome to attend. Why not start this Summer to motivate your child to learn another language?

*Please note that applications for the French/Chinese summer school are limited and will be closed as soon as the number of applicants reaches 15.

The aim of this year's Chinese summer school is to build creativity by exploring traditional and contemporary Chinese art, knowledge, and culture.

At the French Summer School at Kansai International Academy, we want students to approach French art and culture through a variety of themes and activities, making new discoveries.
Before exploring French art and culture, students learn words that match the theme and engage in morning circle activities. And at the end, we will always look back in review.

In order to introduce French culture well, we want the children to experience the activities and events at their own pace and with their own minds. The French Summer School offers a full day of French language learning with activities that take into account the developmental age of the children.

Join us for a week of "experiencing all that France has to offer" by discovering French culture from many different angles using the full range of the child's senses!
By watching French short films, we will challenge you to improve your understanding of the French language and culture from a visual standpoint as well. After watching the film, students will review the content and work on their speaking and writing skills.
