Intensive and effective Language Learning for Children during Carnival holidays

CERAN Academy is offering intensive courses for young students this carnival season in both Dutch and English languages. 

This brand new session will be centered around the theme of “Illusions and Magic of the Cinema.” It was thoughtfully chosen to ignite the imagination and creativity of our young students, while also providing them with an opportunity to learn or perfect their Dutch or English language skills.

Exciting excursions

On Wednesday, our students will embark on a journey to explore the vibrant city of Mechelen while speaking the target language.

They will have the opportunity to take in the sights of the colourful buildings, marvel at the Grand Place, and ascend the steps of the impressive cathedral while practising their language skills.
This excursion will not only allow students to experience the rich history and culture of the city, but it will also provide them with an opportunity to strengthen their problem-solving skills as they navigate the illusions at the largest illusion museum in Europe, all in the target language.

Furthermore, savouring a delicious meal at an old mill by the water will give students the chance to bond with their classmates and make lasting memories, all while practising their language skills.

Sport activities

The Spa campus boasts a variety of sports facilities, green spaces, and artistic rooms, as well as access to parks and gyms offering a range of activities such as badminton, basketball, handball, beach volleyball, football, tchoukball, tree climbing, archery, tennis, drama, drawing, painting, scrapbooking, escape games, and talent shows.

These sports activities are carefully crafted with a warm and educational approach to enhance language learning for our young students.

By participating, students can build teamwork and communication skills, further enriching their learning experience.

Gala and Oscars

On Friday evening, a "CERAN Awards" ceremony on the theme of cinema will be organized with a delicious meal served at the table: enough to spend an evening worthy of Cannes.

Established in 1975, CERAN is a language school based in France, Switzerland and Belgium.
We have successfully trained more than 150,000 students from 130 nationalities through our tailored courses and unique total immersion concept.
Our commitment to language quality ensures that our students develop a strong language background, with good listening comprehension and practice skills.
We offer intensive immersion courses for young people during the school holidays, with sports activities, excursions, and entertainment.


Developed in 1975 and continually updated and improved, the CERAN methodology focuses on communication
and enables young learners to express themselves in the target language with greater confidence.


From morning to evening, students practice the target language with their classmates, teachers and supervisors, even outside the classroom during meals, activities and excursions. Non-stop practice!


A technique of reinforcement and assimilation of the language based on mutual listening between the trainer and the learner and repetition. Did you know that neuroscientific studies have shown that you have to repeat something at least5 times in order to remember it?


Every language has its own music, rhythm and intonation. This verbo-tonal method corrects students’ phonetic errors, improves pronunciation and reduces the influence of their mother tongue to enable better communication.


They summarize each lesson and are recorded for students to practice and use in different contexts.

Seriously Fun

CERAN Academy’s goal is to provide a global and personalized solution to all your child’s language training needs.

Our teams are present at every stage of your child’s project: whether it is to prepare your child’s arrival by discussing his or her needs and expectations, or to personally accompany your child during his or her stay at our campus.

28 45-minute group lessons per week (equivalent to 21 hours of classes), including speaking, reading, and comprehension lessons in the morning, while the afternoon is dedicated to writing lessons and projects in which the language is put into practice.

Vocabulary and grammar are taught through the practice of everyday situations such as introducing oneself, giving one’s opinion on current affairs, or the study of different themes which lead to multimedia presentations, exhibitions of paintings, photographs or videos.

It is possible to add extra individual lessons each day. 2, 4, 6 or 8 lessons more during the week in order to work on a specific difficulty, a gap, to prepare for a school exam or international tests such as Cambridge, TOEFL, DALF, etc.

Experience the power of our intensive courses through the success of our students.
