About this event

🧒 🧒🏻 🧒🏿 🧒🏽 On Saturday 9th July, bring your children to an extended French festival workshop at The VICI Language Academy. Our expert language coaches will be running an entertaining session comprising fun and relaxed linguistic education. Drop your children off and enjoy some time to yourself as they meet other children from the community and discover a love of languages in the safe and comfortable environment of our beautiful premises in the heart of Newbury. 🧒 🧒🏻 🧒🏿 🧒🏽

🇫🇷 Who will enjoy this event?

Children 3-11 years old:

  • This event is suitable from independent children as young as 3 years old (for example, those habituated to being away from their parents, for instance in a preschool setting. This is a 4-hour workshop, so children who attend will need to be happy being separated from their parents for this period of time.)
  • This event has been carefully designed to cater for children of mixed ages, a with streamed activities available so all children of all ages are engaged.
  • The session caters for different levels of linguistic ability, with fun and engaging activities for those completely new to the language as well as those who have more experience and confidence
  • We understand how important it is for children to be properly engaged, so we plan and provide varied activities rather than using one-size-fits-all resources

Existing VICI members and new friends:

We'd like to extend this workshop to all children; those already known to us and those who haven't experienced The VICI before. Whether your child is new to the language or eager to learn more, this is the perfect springboard!

🇫🇷 What’s the purpose of the workshop?

At The VICI Language Academy, we specialise in bringing languages to life and are passionate about sharing our love of linguistics. The objective of this event is to get children involved and discovering a love of languages through structured play. Your children will experience all the entertainment of an art and craft afternoon or a play area, with all the benefits of a foreign language incorporated into the fun.

We want to give Newbury's burgeoning young French language community an opportunity to enjoy time together to get to know each other, build friendships and grow their love of languages through structured play.

🇫🇷 What can children expect on the day?

This session has been carefully designed to build in a range of activities, from high energy, action-based work to quieter story-oriented exercises. Children will be completely immersed in all sorts of educational fun, including:

🎨 Art 🎲 Games 🎶 Music 🥸 Dressing-up 💃Dancing

🎭 Roleplaying 🧩 Puzzles 🎙 Singing 🖍️ Crafting ✨ And more!

Refreshments will be provided for the children during the session.

🇫🇷 Why should your children come?

The VICI Language Academy’s children’s language events are a small but integral part of what we do, and are underpinned by all the experience and expertise we’ve acquired since we opened in 2008.

We treat our children’s events with the same seriousness and rigour that we pour into our full language programmes! Our events aren’t just a weekend kids’ club - each one is like a mini bilingual learning experience run by seasoned, skilled professionals.

🇫🇷 What is the venue like?

  • This event is being held at our beautiful VICI Language Academy, ideally situated in central Newbury with parking nearby
  • The Academy has several classroom environments, from large group areas great for high energy activities through to smaller rooms ideal for breakout sessions
  • Our classrooms have big screens, comfortable seating, dedicated learning areas, lots of fun toys and even more learning resources and activities
  • Parents can wait in our beautifully-appointed waiting area with free WiFi, or take a 2-minute stroll into the heart of Newbury

🇫🇷 Important information

As this event will take place over lunch, children should bring a packed lunch.
