About the Event
We specialise in beautiful immersion courses. Our next destination will be the gorgeous Bay of Arcachon, on the French West Coast. Come along to one of our immersion courses to boost your French with our native French speaking teachers who also have extension experience traveling and leading tours.
For this immersion course, our basecamp will be a house by the ocean in the Bay of Arcachon. The exact location is yet to be determined as it will depend on the number of participants. What we can guarantee is that the house(s) we will choose will meet our usual list of criteria:
-spacious with an outdoor living space,
-beautiful and convenient location,
-amazing facilities with a full kitchen for cooking lessons, a lovely lounge for teas/coffees/movie night/conversation sessions,
-useful amenities such as Wifi, laundry, etc,
-we will try our best to get a pool, although the ocean will be nearby.
Should you choose to stay on-site, you will benefit from a room and access to all facilities.
Our students will enjoy French classes in the common room for at least 3 hours a day. As usual, all our classes are prepared based on our students' levels and goals. Whether you are learning French for personal reasons or for work, we will tailor our courses to your needs. These more formal lessons are completed by a set of activities in French: tours, tastings, cooking classes, conversation café sessions, sports activities, shopping and open market assignements... We set the exact program once we have a full list of participants to be sure there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Examples of activities from the previous years: village tour, painting activity, open market, train city tour, cruise, cooking workshop with a chef, perfume making, winery tour and tasting activity, discovery of dried ham factory, linen factory tour, hike and picnic, etc.
