“Play and Learn”: this is how Children and Teens describe the ACCORD’s teaching methodology. ACCORD teaching focuses on oral communication using authentic documents such as songs, TV programs, movies and magazines.
ACCORD teachers have compiled a wide range of games and activities that make the learning of grammar, structure, vocabulary and pronunciation interesting and fun.
The teachers, all University graduates, are fully qualified in the teaching of French as a foreign language. They are experienced in teaching French to children.
On the last day of their stay, Children will be given an end of course certificate, stating their level and the number of hours of French they have studied, and the progress made during their course.
An ACCORD transfer service is available on request.
Visits, cultural activities and sports
On Monday morning, Children register for the activities of their choice among the many options available, such as badminton, table tennis, volleyball, football, basket-ball, face-painting, etc. and they get the details of the visits in Paris organised during the week.
The ACCORD staff members in charge of the Teens have the official BAFA/BAFD degrees (Brevets d’Aptitude aux Fonctions d’Animateur – or de Directeur).
At the ACCORD Day Student program in Paris, Children join 5 half-day excursions always accompanied by our ACCORD staff members. These excursions are an opportunity to discover most of the important famous sites of Paris and its surrounding area: Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint-Louis, the Louvre museum, the Eiffel Tower, the Trocadéro and Champs de Mars area, Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur basilica, etc.
Please note that due to French regulation, for the 6 to 11 years old Children enrolled as Day Students, a parent has to book for same programme to be with his child during all the visits.
