Bilingual Wednesday workshops
Every Wednesday, except during holidays, in the morning (from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.), Galilée Bilingual school offers for children from 3 to 6 the following activities in English with a native teacher:

We consider that a language is alive not only when you use it to speak, but more essentially when you use it to mime, sing, dance. Entertainment plays an essential part and language learning becomes connected to this notion in the mind of the children. Their intelligence is stimulated and they enrich their vocabulary while having fun and progressing at their own pace.
