Come and experience the French rural life at your teacher’s home !
A week of immersion is the best way to boost your French while having a wonderful time. The language program is designed to give you lots of opportunities to practise French in a relaxed atmosphere. You'll have the full attention of a private teacher during your stay. It's time to enjoy the French way of life !
We offer 2 different programs that you can choose from, depending on the intensity you’re looking for :
The Classic program is designed to give you numerous opportunities to practice French with your teacher as well as allowing you time for yourself and for you to try one of our gastronomic experiences.
The Intensive Program will give you more formal lessons, it is recommended if you don't take the French cuisine offer and you want to have more opportunities of conversation.
Marion will be your host and teacher during that program and Mélie, your gastronomic guide if you choose any of our foodie offers.
