Courses for children and teenagers

The youngest will discover the English language and learn to use and pronounce words, the 7-9 year olds will work on how to create sentences and ask questions while the pre-teens will start to be autonomous and express themselves spontaneously. The workshops take place in Estavayer and Fribourg.
