English Literature & Writing Workshops

NOTICE:

These workshops are designed for English speakers and will be conducted entirely in English.

English Literature & Writing Worshops are now available for the children of our ACPEQ members.

Mastering the English language and appreciating all of its particularities can open up many doors. It is a useful skill our children will benefit from in the future.

During these workshops, the children will discover some of English literature’s treasures and will speak English with other participants. They will also be expected to produce reading comprehensions and will also have homework to do following the meetings.

If English is not your children’s first language, they will need to be at least of the intermediate level .. The advanced level is preferable. Mainly, your child will need to be able to:

  • Read and understand novels in English ;
  • Write texts related to what he or she has read;
  • Have an excellent oral comprehension;
  • Converse in English with ease.
