For the second consecutive summer, AFHK had the opportunity to lead two intensive French programmes for university students of Hong Kong.
These special programmes were initially spearheaded in 2020 as part of our Covid-19 response plan, with the support of the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macao, the Society of Members of the Legion of Honour and the partner universities of Hong Kong.
Last July and August, over 90 students, with different levels of competency in French, took part in these Intensive French Classes to strengthen their language skills and develop their knowledge of French culture.
For 3 weeks, students could enjoy French summer in our Jordan centre, through French courses, cultural outings and "Art de Vivre" workshops.
Following a placement test, the students joined the programme that
included a total of 28 hours of French classes combined with various initiation activities such as wine
tastings, cooking workshops, virtual tours of Le Louvre, visits of the Surrealism exhibition at the HKMOA and of the Congo
exhibition at the UMAG. Last but not least our students experienced an Escale in Paris through our newly developed augmented reality
“The Summer program was nice because we’ve been learning and practising every day. I met so many new people, they are all so nice, so kind and helpful.” – Sarah
We had lots of fun having university students around our centres again for a few weeks and we appreciated sharing a taste of France with them.
We wish them all the best for the year ahead and we look forward to welcoming new students again for our Autumn term starting
on October the 12th.
“The summer program was awesome, I’ve got to meet lots of new people and focus on my French listening and speaking skills.” – Michael
