Roaming Schoolhouse has years of experience preparing their students for international section entrance exams at the collège and lycée levels for students wanting to obtain the BFI (previously known as the OIB). In person and online classes, weeklong and weekend boot camps are offered for specific exam preparation, to teach test taking techniques, offer targeted reading comprehension and creative writing support, as well as work to improve the oral expression necessary for the all-important interviews (including poetry analysis).
Does your child like writing short stories? Then they should consider entering a story in the YAFF writing competition (if they haven't already). The Young Authors Fiction Festival is free to enter and is open to all young authors, from Kindergarten/Grande Section to 12th Grade/Terminale, who write in English and live in France.
Visit the American Library website for more details on the competition : rules and how to submit.
Then think about signing up your child to the Exam Prep camp coming up, from 20 - 24 February. The week is organized to allow for a lot of reading comprehension and writing practice, and there will be mock interviews .....
For more information/ to sign up, visit our Camps page.
